Review: Echo Generation – Stranger Things Style RPG Knocks It Out The Park

An Xbox Game Pass title you don’t want to miss.

There’s been something of a boom in 80s nostalgia in recent years, much of which has Stranger Things to blame for. It’s no surprise, as the show’s captivating world and electrifying synth tones give the feeling of a warm, cosy comfort blanket – despite the horrors the show presents. Echo Generation is similar, clearly inspired by shows such as Stranger Things and movies in the vein of The Goonies. The result is a wonderful adventure filled with 80s vibes that’s an absolute treat for Xbox Game Pass members.

Echo Generation mixes turn-based combat with the adventure game style of classic Double Fine games such as Grim Fandango. When you’re not fighting racoons, aliens and killer clown robots, you’ll be finding items and discovering who you need to take them to. All of this is wrapped in a heart-warming if somewhat messy narrative about a pair of siblings who venture out to uncover what’s happened to their missing dad. It’s filled with twists and turns, but is often unfocused and flies off in random directions.
