The Ascent was among the many most visually spectacular titles of 2021. Although its gameplay and storytelling didn’t all the time hit the mark, it provided a decent cooperative expertise. In his assessment, GI video editor Alex Stadnik wrote, “The Ascent has issues, but those issues don’t detract from my overall enjoyment of the game. I won’t write my thesis on its commentary on capitalism, but I’ll fondly remember my co-op sessions where I tore through this cyberpunk world. That being said, the shallow RPG elements, lack of meaningful narrative, and exploration frustration were constants that really dragged the experience down. Neon Giant has made a solid foundation to build on, and I hope we can see future installments grow into something truly worthy of ascension.”
