Reviewers were pleased with the atmosphere and exoticism of Pandora, the quality of graphics, movement mechanics, several unique innovations in the usual gameplay formula, soundtrack and co-op mode.

The project’s disadvantages included a slow start, an overly familiar gameplay formula, a generally weak plot, clumsy stealth, boring side missions, a dominance of microtransactions, problems with AI and optimization.

    According to some reviewers, the game has so many little mechanics that they spoil rather than add to the fun.
