Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door boxart

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Switch Review

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is a good re-release of a good game, and adjustments made only improve upon it in small but substantial ways. It's an easy recommendation for general audiences and RPG fans. Now, where's my Luigi in Waffle Kingdom RPG?

Dread Delusion Review

Dread Delusion sets out to create a haunting open world, evoking RPGs of the past - and succeeds.

Megaton Musashi W: Wired boxart

Megaton Musashi W: Wired Review

Level-5's giant robot action RPG is one of the most fully-featured games in the modern era with a compelling story, fun gameplay, and loads of in-depth customization systems that makes this hidden gem, unexpectedly, one of the best games of the year so far.

Soul Covenant boxart

Soul Covenant Review

The spirit of Soul Sacrifice remains, but Thirdverse's successor doesn't quite stick the landing.

Broken Roads boxart

Broken Roads Review

I was excited to see my country represented properly in a video game, and that did happen. Sadly the game itself isn’t worth a damn, it’s a classic style RPG but none of my choices matter and I can hardly make any of them. The only real redeeming quality is the art.

Stellar Blade boxart

Stellar Blade Review

Stellar Blade is a substantial and gorgeous-looking action RPG with exciting combat, but its narrative is undermined by flat characterization and frequently lifeless storytelling.

SaGa Emerald Beyond boxart

SaGa Emerald Beyond Review

SaGa Emerald Beyond is a bold celebration of the series' past and present, warts and all.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes boxart

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Review

While there is room to improve and some blemishes throughout, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has excellent presentation & nostalgic charm, and I cannot overstate enough how glad I am that it exists.

Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters boxart

Neptunia Sisters vs. Sisters Switch Review

Neptunia Sisters vs. Sisters on Switch is a decent port if you're looking for Neptunia on the go, but there are much better home options available.

The Legend of Legacy boxart

The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered Review

I'm not sure what to feel about The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered. I don’t really mind the game's minimalist approach to narrative, but the dungeon design, repetitive battles, and difficulty walls I hit made it hard to press on.

Unicorn Overlord boxart

Unicorn Overlord Review

Unicorn Overlord seems allergic to risk-taking, and it makes for a safe and enjoyable product that fails to introduce anything new. So when I was given just a passable game, I couldn’t help but be let down.

Rise of the Ronin boxart

Rise of the Ronin Review

Team Ninja's ambitious open-world action RPG is one of the best games about the Bakumatsu era ever, but its repetitive, uninspired open-world activities bog down what is an otherwise captivating experience.

Dragon's Dogma 2 boxart

Dragon's Dogma 2 Review

The first Dragon's Dogma was ahead of its time. With Dragon's Dogma 2, its vision is fully realized. The result is one of the best RPGs of the last decade.

The Thaumaturge boxart

The Thaumaturge Review

Developer Fool's Theory has crafted a solid RPG set in 1905 Warsaw that, at times, can feel like as much of an awesome documentary as it is a video game.

Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island boxart

Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island Review

Shiren's latest adventure proves that game sequels can benefit just as much from what they remove as well as what they add.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth boxart

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Review

A massive game that synthesizes two distinct eras of blockbuster game design, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth feels fresh and familiar simultaneously, while forging a new path for Cloud and the crew.

Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story boxart

Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story Review

Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story is something most would now term a “cozy game”, being a light simulation game that’s largely relaxing and not too stressful. Its gameplay and story can feel pretty mediocre, reminding me of childhood favorites but never as entertaining.

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden boxart

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden Review

Banishers: Ghost of New Eden's excellent characters and storytelling are diminished by its mundane world structure and repetitive combat.

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince boxart

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince Review

The Dragon Quest Monsters series makes a great return on Nintendo Switch, but in regards to its story it does very little to properly honor the legacy of the game it takes inspiration from.

Persona 3 Reload boxart

Persona 3 Reload Review

Persona 3 Reload is a fantastic remake of the game that set the course that the Persona franchise still follows today.

Eastward boxart

Eastward Octopia Review

Eastward Octopia is a fun little distraction, that doesn't stray too far from the usual farming sim formula. Changes to certain important side jobs like fishing and mining help to elevate it, but the lack of constant progress mid-way really drags the experience down.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink boxart

Granblue Fantasy: Relink Review

Offering a stacked roster of playable characters, intuitive multiplayer action combat, and a bombastic single-player story quest, Granblue Fantasy: Relink is a resounding success.

Enshrouded boxart

Enshrouded Early Access Review

An expansive world, well-written lore, and decent base-building provide an enjoyable survival game alternative.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy boxart

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy Review

The three games of the Apollo Justice "trilogy" are well worth the read, even if they aren't an ideal starting point for the series.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth boxart

Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth Review

With a fantastic premise that earns its dual protagonist direction in Ichiban & Kiryu, major combat system refinements, plethora of engaging side activities in its new beautiful Hawaii locale, and developments that enrich the Yakuza-era legacy, Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth is one of the best games RGG Studio has ever made.
