Front Mission 1st: Remake Review

Front Mission 1st: Remake Review

Forever Entertainment's modern crack at a classic strategy RPG has its highs and lows, but I walk away from it feeling stoked for the Wanzer warfare remakes to come.

Marvel's Midnight Suns Review

Marvel's Midnight Suns Review

Despite a troubled road to release, Marvel's Midnight Suns is an excellent tactical RPG that delivers an awesome roster of heroes with a compelling battle system throughout its lengthy campaign.

Astlibra Revision captures the perfect definition of a hidden gem. It's engrossing gameplay and narrative makes it an easy recommendation to fans of the 2D action RPG genre.

Beneath all the jank and technical disaster, there's a Pokemon game that deserved better.

Tactics Ogre: Reborn Review

Tactics Ogre: Reborn Review

While Reborn is largely an excellent re-release of Tactics Ogre (again), many of its gameplay alterations give it new flaws that will have me making caveats in recommending it (again).

Pentiment Review

Pentiment Review

Pentiment offers a thematically striking and ultimately optimistic experience that is as engaging as it is unique.

Star Ocean The Divine Force Review

Star Ocean The Divine Force Review

Star Ocean: The Divine Force is developer tri-Ace's latest foray into the stars with this latest entry of their long-running science fiction RPG series, and after a rocky previous entry, this new game may have righted the ship towards a bright future.

Batora: Lost Haven Review

Batora: Lost Haven Review

Batora: Lost Haven is a boring RPG with tedious dialogue and lackluster level design, saved only by adequate combat, respectable art, and a mercifully short runtime.

Asterigos: Curse of the Stars Review

Despite its rough edges, Asterigos is a solid action RPG with a satisfying story and competent combat.

Lost Eidolons Review

Lost Eidolons Review

Lost Eidolons offers a great strategic experience with thorough gameplay systems and mechanics, though its presentation and narrative fall just a bit flat.

The Outbound Ghost Review

The Outbound Ghost Review

The Outbound Ghost is a bland and confusing game that is as boring as it is pretty.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Review

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes provides Fire Emblem: Three Houses fans with a compelling retelling of its story alongside its great cast of characters.

The DioField Chronicle Review

The DioField Chronicle Review

Despite its various shortcomings, The DioField Chronicle is a refreshing take on strategy RPGs with satisfying gameplay systems and bold narrative design.

Valkyrie Elysium Review

Valkyrie Elysium Review

While the combat to this Valkyrie Profile action RPG spin-off is top notch, the rest of the game ranges from mediocre to merely serviceable.

Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden Review

Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden Review

Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden is an overall more streamlined experience than other entries. With the frequency of releases in the series compared to the number of improvements made, the cards are starting to wear a bit thin.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero Review

The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero Review

Western fans of The Legend of Heroes can finally officially experience this amazing lynchpin entry of the series and how the Special Support Section came together!

Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness Review

Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness Review

Although it has some interesting ideas as a survival action RPG, Binary Star Falling into Darkness will primarily appeal to hardcore Made in Abyss fans and offer very little to newcomers.

Steelrising Review

Steelrising Review

Spiders Studio tackles a different sub-genre of RPG with Steelrising, going for a Souls-like experience this time around. While competent, it doesn't achieve much to stand out from the crowd.

SD Gundam Battle Alliance Review

SD Gundam Battle Alliance Review

Artdink's first Gundam game in a decade is surprisingly a challenge as a purely solo experience, and playing with others may make this action RPG shine despite its handful of flaws.

RPG Time: The Legend of Wright Review

RPG Time: The Legend of Wright Review

RPG Time: The Legend of Wright is a game made by an aspiring designer who's currently a school-kid, or at least that’s the game’s premise. The focus of this game is largely on style, but it’s not entirely devoid of substance. It is however held back a little by some annoying controls and Kenta’s railroading.

Soul Hackers 2 Review

Soul Hackers 2 Review

Soul Hackers 2 is an adequate, experimental Megaten entry with some bright spots, but it doesn't quite come together as well as I hoped it would.

Digimon Survive Review

Digimon Survive Review

For a game that places so much weight on its cast and writing , Digimon Survive struggles to engage with poor characterization and weak storytelling.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Review

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Review

Between an exceptionally well-written cast, a deeply satisfying combat system, and an amazing adventure that remarkably earns its very long run time, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a JRPG masterpiece.
