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.

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.

Little Noah: Scion of Paradise Review

Little Noah: Scion of Paradise Review

Cygames' roguelite action romp offers a compelling take on the genre, that's perfect for beginners to grit their teeth on.

Live A Live Review

Live A Live Review

Although it is more than 25 years old, Live A Live delights with charming narratives, solid gameplay, and a well-remastered presentation.

While not quite perfect, Sunbreak confidently brings all of Monster Hunter Rise's best ideas to the next level.

AI: The Somnium Files - nirvanA Initiative Review

AI: The Somnium Files - nirvanA Initiative Review

As a follow-up to a 2019 cult classic adventure game, this surprise sequel is full of heart and blows past expectations.

Symphony of War: The Nephilim Saga Review

Symphony of War: The Nephilim Saga Review

Symphony of War: The Nephilim Saga pulls from classics such as Fire Emblem and Ogre Battle to create a brand new IP that impresses and leaves us wanting more.

Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic II - The Sith Lords Switch Review

Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic II - The Sith Lords Switch Review

Much like Aspyr's port of the first game, this new Switch port of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 - The Sith Lords is perhaps the best way to play this RPG!

Coromon Review

Coromon Review

Coromon is a game filled with potential but past sinking sands and perplexing puzzles it starts to fall flat. The shake-ups do let Coromon stand on its own and create an enjoyable experience, but it could’ve evolved to be something a little more.

Elex II Review

Elex II Review

Elex II is an initially promising but ultimately disappointing RPG that fails to be better than the original.

The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story Review

The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story Review

This high-budget FMV Japanese mystery adventure is an exceptional game in almost every way, but its tedious "gameplay" sections are its largest Achilles' heel.

Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden Review

Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden Review

The Forsaken Maiden is too similar to its predecessor to declare it as being significantly improved, with the greater difference lying largely in its narrative. It is a complementary experience that fans of the first are likely to enjoy just as much.

Weird West Review

Weird West Review

Despite its unique narrative and intriguing premise, Weird West is often a frustrating experience that is difficult to enjoy playing.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising Review

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising Review

Rising is a respectable introduction to the world of Eiyuden Chronicle, with great characters, writing, and art. However, the game structure and combat have a hard time standing on their own.

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition Review

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition Review

The Radical Dreamers Edition brings back two classics for the first time since their debut, but the Switch version leaves a lot to be desired.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Switch Review

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Switch Review

Vanillaware has handled 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim's Switch port with the utmost care and, with some of the changes, may even be better than the PS4 version. If you love RPGs, have an affinity for excellent stories, are in the mood for some good brain exercise, or just looking for a nice 30-hour experience in gaming, look no further than 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.

Kaito's solo adventure is a thrilling side story to Lost Judgment and explores a new side to Yagami's sidekick with a new, compelling storyline.
