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.

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.

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.

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

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.

The Cruel King and the Great Hero review

Despite all its charm, The Cruel King and the Great Hero is hard to recommend.

Rune Factory 5 Review

Rune Factory 5 Review

Rune Factory 5 is an endlessly charming, technically messy farm-life RPG that will delight series fans for a while.

Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream Review

Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream Review

Atelier Sophie 2 manages to synthesise old and new in a way befitting improvements to the franchise while leaving it comfortably with the rest of the Mysterious games. It doesn’t quite reach the heights of Atelier Ryza 2, but will still definitely keep most Atelier fans quite happy.

Chocobo GP Review

Chocobo GP Review

While the racing itself is solid enough, limitations on multiplayer and strange monetization gimmicks hold this cart racer back.

Triangle Strategy Review

Triangle Strategy Review

While its tactical combat is wonderful, issues with the branching narrative and morality systems hold Triangle Strategy back from true greatness.

Monark Review

Monark Review

Although the combat system is a highlight, the madness stirs in this repetitive and dull RPG.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Review

Pokemon Legends: Arceus reimagines turn-based combat in an open-world setting for a fresh, satisfying "catch 'em all" experience.

The Good Life Review

The Good Life Review

Despite an interesting setting, tedious gameplay and poor performance makes The Good Life a disappointing outing for Swery.

Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars Review

Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars Review

More experienced gamers might bemoan the straightforward gameplay or lack of difficulty, but those who are interested in the charm and humour only need bring their cards to the table in Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars.

Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars Review

This crossover will please fans of both series, but accomplishes little else.

Super Robot Wars 30 Review

Super Robot Wars 30 Review

It only took 30 years, but a brand-new mainline SRW with a nice handful of recognizable anime IPs got an official worldwide simultaneous release and, it's pretty damn good.

Dungeon Encounters Review

Dungeon Encounters Review

Dungeon Encounters is a certain type of RPG for a certain type of person. If you are a numbers-nerd who favors battles over story, this might be for you.

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story Review

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story Review

Ruined King is an imaginative and comfortable RPG, even for players unfamiliar with League of Legends, but a lack of polish drags down the experience.
