Professional Review

Rivals of Aether is a platform fighting game that only has a few characters but lots of personalities to make up for that. You can download Rivals of Aether for your PC from Steam or get it for your Xbox from the Microsoft Store.

Graphics: 5

The 16-bit graphics in RIvals of Aether may seem a little outdated to younger gamers, but they also bring back happy childhood memories of enjoying awesome games for many players. What’s more, this art style totally fits the overall spirit of the game and makes the gameplay a lot more enjoyable. As a bonus, the simplistic graphics make the game less demanding in terms of system specifications so you can enjoy Rivals of Aether even if your PC is not top of the line.

Gameplay: 4

Playing the Rivals of Aether game can be very fun, but it might not be up to the casual gamer’s alley. Rivals of Aether is pretty challenging and requires you to go all in if you want to be good at it.  This means that you’ll need to spend a considerable amount of time getting used to the mechanics of the game and finding out more about each character’s strengths. This will allow you to correctly estimate which actions are going to be the most beneficial for your character and execute them as fast as possible. The endless Abyss Mode provides a good training ground for you to sharpen your skills before you work on completing the story mode. If you’re into platform fighters, you’ll likely find this level of difficulty to be an advantage, but for casual gamers, the number of dedication Rivals of Aether demands may simply be too much.

Controls: 4

Fighting your opponents effectively is only possible if you have full control of your character’s motion, which means that the Rivals of Aether PC version has to be played with a gamepad - the precision and range of motion provided by keyboard keys is simply not enough.

Replay Value: 4

If you’re a fan of the game, you’ll probably want to revisit the Rivals of Aether from time to time to play the endless Abyss Mode or just replay the story mode and get to know the characters a little better. Otherwise, there isn’t much else left for you to do after completing story mode unless a Rivals of Aether update with fresh content comes out.

The Bottom Line

Rivals of Aether is not a Super Smash Bros. clone that can be discarded as a poor imitation. The game successfully elaborates on the familiar idea and gameplay mechanics to create a whole new experience that can be very challenging and captivate your attention for a long time.


If you’re a fan of the platform fighting genre or simply enjoy games that push your limits, download Rivals of Aether and you won’t be disappointed!
