Elderand is an enjoyable, old-fashioned hack 'n' slash adventure that will challenge you without punishing you.
PC Invasion

7.5 / 10
It lacks ambition and doesn't have much to differentiate it from its peers, but the design is so solid and the world is fun enough to explore that there's certainly a good time to be had in Elderand.
