About the Game

In this science-fiction-themed action RPG set in a distant future, hostile aliens are out to turn Earth’s organic life into cyborgs. These aliens, known as The Harvesters, use humans and animals to create cyborgs: crude amalgamations of flesh and machinery.

As a member of the Global Defense Force (GDF), you and your fellow freedom fighters have been deployed to various parts of the world to wage a war against The Harvesters in hope of restoring Earth to its rightful owners.

The Harvest game world provides not only visceral combat, but opportunities for exploration, character customization, and story progression. As you make your way through each challenge, you must not only fight off wave after wave of The Harvester horde, but find hidden upgrades, perform story actions, and defeat large and imposing enemy boss units in order to move on to the next challenge.

It's basically a phone or tablet sort of game. Not a lot of mechanics to worry about, touch screen type controls (Works with a mouse, though)
If you've got a phone or tablet, it's not a horrible idea to play this. If you're on a desktop, I'd say don't bother.

The Harvest is a sloppy action RPG, with poor graphics, monotonous levels, enemies, abilities (regardless of which class you play), dry story and many bugs that stop you from progressing. You play one of five robot classes, Earth's best hope to ending an invasion led by aliens who aim to turn all life into cyborg monsters. This game begins to drag almost instantly with objectives that require you to circle the plain maps doing the same wave based instances over and over again. The only decent quality is the customization, and even that becomes stale quickly, and is nothing compared to the customization offered in titles within the same genre. In all, The Harvest is not worth full price, or even a decent sale price. 3/10

The Harvest is a game where you control 5 mechs (not at once) to battle alien cyborgs known as Harvesters. Everything is controled by the mouse, even the mech's abilities. When first starting out, I suggest choosing a mech that fits your playstyle, then moving from there. This does have online co-op, up to 4 players. So you can play with your friends. and this game is only 7$, so you won't break the bank buying this game. It also has high replay value, try a act on a harder difficulty, try and max out one of your mech's levels, different armor and weapon combos.

+ Mechs
+ Loot

- Unchallenging
- Long, boring and uninspired corridors
- Not much level variety in general
- Short (4 'worlds', 3-4 hours of playtime total)

I'd give it a 7/10 at most.

The Harvest is an Action RPG where you play as a Mech fighting off an Alien menace intent on harvesting the Human race, I think. The story wasn't really very clear.

You can select from five different Mech types each with 2 special attacks unique to them and like all ARPGS you fight enemies, collect loot, level up and explore a very limited map. It's just there are many better versions of this game with better enemies, better loot, a better levelling system and better exploration.

The game was originally a Win8 tablet/desktop app and it shows. The graphics are poor, videos look like they are scaled up from 320x200 and the controls limited. The view is also far too claustrophobic. Many times enemies off screen shoot at you and you find yourself watching the minimap for far more of the game than the actual screen. Some sort of zoom out function is desperately needed here.

The game occurs across four different environments, the desert, a city and two slightly different underground levels. But there are no really different or interesting ideas here, its almost completely derivative. The desert level has Sarlaccs, the staff wielding baddies from Stargate show up and at least two of the bosses look like the broodmother from Dragon Age.

The game is also quite buggy and seems to have been abandoned. There is a side mission that doesn't seem to work at all in the first area, some of the achievements don't work properly, one is given for collecting 1 recording instead of 10 and another doesn't work at all. There are also reports that the game will only work in Win8, it worked fine for me in Win7 32-bit, but it's probably wise to be careful.

Every part of this game is inferior to the leaders in the genre. It's just meh, buy torchlight 1 or 2 or maybe Van Helsing instead.
