Reviews

“Son of Nor is clever in a way that we don't see very often in gaming, and combines innovation and polish better than most of the industry's big-name developers. It's different, and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.”
CinemaBlend

“There’s no arguing about it, Son of Nor is an innovative game.”
MMOHuts

“Son of Nor looks and feels absolutely stunning... I recommend it to anyone who wants to feel like they’re a member of the Avatar cast, or who simply enjoys terraforming and throwing rocks at people.”

About This Game

As a Son of Nor, consecrated by the Goddess of the Night, you are all that stands between the human race and total extinction. Only one human enclave remains in the vast desert world of Noshrac, a hidden refuge called The Edge. After 400 years of peace, humanity’s ancient enemy the Sarahul appears once more, forcing you into an adventure to save your people.

Armed with telekinesis and terraforming, the gifts granted by the goddess Nor, you will explore the world of Noshrac, fighting through enemy territory and uncovering long-forgotten secrets. On your journey you will discover mysterious structures created by an ancient race that are filled with puzzles and traps – and the key to mystical powers unlike any you’ve ever seen.

As a Son of Nor, the World is your Weapon. Use it wisely.

I liked the concept for this game, and thought it had a lot of potential, but it suffers from shoddy execution.

PRO
  • Concept is novel, and gameplay not typical.
  • Co-op is available, and playing co-op can help make up for the game's shortcomings by making interesting combos possible.
  • Puzzles and platforming with physics - a great combination in almost any game that does it. It's possible the game would have been rather better for me if it had been about the puzzles instead of boring combat against swarms of boring enemies.

NEUTRAL
  • Dated graphics - only a con if you want AAA visuals.
  • Railroading - the world isn't open
  • The plot and characters are forgettable

CON
  • Voice acting is cringeworthy.
  • Inaccurate physics in a game where the physics is vital to gameplay
  • Controls are... slippery? I think that's the word for it. Hard to explain, but controls sometimes react slowly, and other times suddenly.
  • Surpsingly demanding on hardware for an older graphics style.
  • Combat is repetitive and dull. You can be creative, but the game encourages you to just bash everything with whatever is handy.

90s PC throwback aesthetic? Cool, especially when it looks and sounds that pretty. Telekinetic manipulation? Even better.

Slippery controls, poor physics, laughable animation work, ♥♥♥♥-tier writing with the voice acting to match, bugs out the ♥♥♥ (why is my screen shaking for no reaso- wait, my ROG G750JZ can't even run this at maximum...? Are you ♥♥♥♥ing kidding m- I'M STUCK AGAIN?!) and a lack of basic player aids (decent map, stage-based collectibles tally, etc.) trampling all over an otherwise novel idea?

Not so much.

A blast to play, and actually quite enjoyable as a co-op experience. The mechanics of it can lead to some funny situations between players and I had a great time. I didn't quite beat it yet, but I love the way the whole thing feels.

It does feel a little bit janky, but in a good way if that makes sense. You can tell it's not a big budget game right away but it adds to the mystery of what you might find. It feels like there are lots of things to discover and toy with and generally I can say I recommend this to anyone who wants a fun co-op experience or who likes to play games that aren't really your standard affair.

I like the idea but it is poorly executed
Game looks and behave like it was created at least 15 years ago, very clunky, unpolished and amateurish, not only graphic i bad but voice acting, storytelling, menu, even character creation/ customization is horrible. Do not buy it, and even if it free it's still waste of time. I tried to give it a chance but I simply can't recommend it to anyone.

Even though a fairly short game it's is still very much worth playing. The ability to control the terrain around you as well as move objects and throw them provides for a very unique game play mechanic. The best part of this game is that it feels like the physics engine allow you to solve any problem a number of different ways rather than the typical "1 right answer" that many other games have.
