The Outer Worlds - Peril on Gorgon Review The Outer Worlds - Peril on Gorgon Review

A self-contained plot that's more of the same.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Review Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Review

A solid introduction to a world that may no longer bed dead, but suffers from overstuffed quest design and mashy combat.

Star Renegades Review Star Renegades Review

A great looking '2DX' pixel art roguelike, though it feels a little thin.

Othercide Review Othercide Review

A unique take on tactical RPGs with an interesting blend of roguelike mechanics. However, not everything comes together well.

Paper Mario: The Origami King Review Paper Mario: The Origami King Review

This sixth entry into the Paper Mario series is not an RPG, and although some issues linger, it's the best adventure game entry yet.

A simple but solid roguelike, mixed with Tamagotchi systems.

A solid but straightforward indie dungeon crawler.

Iron Danger Review Iron Danger Review

The unique time manipulating tactics make this game an interesting strategy game, but also a somewhat tedious one.

Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls Review Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls Review

An average dungeon crawler that doesn't stand out.

Star Ocean: First Departure R Review Star Ocean: First Departure R Review

A fine port of a mediocre game. it's great Star Ocean: First Departure is on more platforms, but the game itself doesn't excel.

A wonderfully written dialogue RPG that defies the preconception of what RPGs can be.

The Surge 2 Review The Surge 2 Review

This sequel improves upon the original in a few ways but misses the mark elsewhere.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Review Fire Emblem: Three Houses Review

A very ambitious game with thorough lore and interesting characters, although it won't often challenge you if you are familiar with strategy RPGs.

A solid and charming dungeon crawler dedicated to Persona fanservice.

A solid but basic Mystery Dungeon spinoff of the Final Fantasy series.

review by Adam Vitale on 09 April, 2019

Etrian Odyssey Nexus Review Etrian Odyssey Nexus Review

A fine finale for the series on 3DS, even if it looks backward more than forward.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey Review Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey Review

Much like the SuperStar Saga remake, this game is a fine revisit to a great game, but doesn't feel necessary.

review by Adam Vitale on 20 January, 2019

The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep Review The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep Review

Although it doesn't quite all come together, this RPG has some robust mechanics and combat that set it apart.

Metal Max Xeno Review Metal Max Xeno Review

While the combination of tank and foot combat offers some interesting wrinkles, it can't hold up an otherwise bland skeleton of a game.

review by Adam Vitale on 20 September, 2018

The Lost Child Review The Lost Child Review

This dungeon crawler takes heavy influence from Shin Megami Tensei but mostly feels like a poor imitation.

review by Adam Vitale on 21 June, 2018

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux Review Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux Review

A little more approachable but still a fantastic dungeon crawling experience.

review by Adam Vitale on 15 May, 2018

Cattle Call tries to make improvements on their previous RPG outing, but not to great effect.

review by Adam Vitale on 26 March, 2018

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Review Kingdom Come: Deliverance Review

This ambitious title from a new developer impresses, but technical issues hold it up considerably.

review by Adam Vitale on 16 March, 2018

Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology Review Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology Review

While the new story content is largely superfluous, several quality-of-life enhancements work to make a remarkable game even better

review by Adam Vitale on 05 February, 2018

Zwei: The Arges Adventure Review Zwei: The Arges Adventure Review

It's great that English players can finally get their hands on this game, but it's hard to say it is anything special or interesting.
