It’s a Complex Mech Game With Tons of Customization
The most important thing to know about Daemon X Machina is just how complex it is, both in terms of base gameplay and how you build your mech, called an Arsenal.
Daemon X Machina is all about customization, letting you fine-tune the parts and weapons your Arsenal uses. You can swap out different pieces of armor including the head, torso, legs, and each arm.
Then, on the other side, you can equip weapons in each hand, two backup weapons stored in pylons, a shoulder weapon, and an auxiliary weapon.
All of these aspects have different stats and can affect things about your Arsenal, like its resistance to damage or your boosting speed. You get the idea.
If you’ve played a game like Armored Core, you know what to expect out of Daemon X Machina. Its combat is blazingly fast, its hud is a bit cluttered, and you’ll need to keep track of multiple enemies and aspects during battle.
If that all sounds up your alley, then Daemon X Machina is a mech game that does the genre well.
