    Skald Against the Black Priory review - a modern take on retro RPGs

    Strong worldbuilding and unique visuals prop up an imbalanced combat system in Raw Fury and High North Studios' retro-infused RPG.

    Attempting to play the forefathers of the RPG genre in 2024 requires patience steeped in a hefty amount of nostalgia. From the days of Ultima and the first Baldur's Gate, the genre has developed quality-of-life features that have made it difficult to turn back the clock by two or more decades. So when a game like Skald: Against the Black Priory promises that retro RPG feel with enough modern concessions to make it fun to play, I jump at the chance to get my hands on it.


    Our Verdict

    Skald: Against the Black Priory captures the spirit of your favorite old-school RPGs while serving up deep sidequests and memorable lore, but its combat and progression systems eventually run into trouble and its overarching narrative never quite takes off.

    Score: 7/10
