Super Mario RPG Review

This brand new remake of the 1996 classic recaptures a lot of what made the original game great while infusing it with modern updates that will be great for new players but may turn off fans of the original.

Persona 5 Tactica boxart

Persona 5 Tactica Review

Persona 5 Tactica delivers a solid tactical RPG, that lands just shy of greatness

Tales of Arise boxart

Tales of Arise - Beyond The Dawn Review

Tales of Arise - Beyond The Dawn is conceptually an interesting epilogue, but stale questing and trite plotting leave me apathetic to this unexpected expansion.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name boxart

Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name Review

Although a solid entry, this title serves as an intermediary of Kiryu's actions between Yakuza 6 and Yakuza: Like A Dragon so its endpoint is inherently predictable and as enjoyable as it is, the narrative is relatively thin in exchange for a wealth of side content to pad it out.

Star Ocean The Second Story R boxart

Star Ocean The Second Story R Review

Star Ocean: The Second Story R has brought a cult classic into a new era. It’s been thoughtfully retooled, but it’s still packed with all the heart and soul of the original. Graphically, it’s gorgeous, and the new quests and features range from fair to fabulous. It’s one of my favorite video games in even finer form.

Little Goody Two Shoes Review

Just in time for Halloween, Little Goody Two Shoes takes players on a macabre jaunt through a not-so-friendly forest.

Front Mission 2: Remake boxart

Front Mission 2: Remake Review

A rough localization and some familiarly frustrating RNG-related issues bog it down, but Front Mission 2: Remake is probably worth the headaches overall.

Dark Envoy boxart

Dark Envoy Review

While Dark Envoy has some interesting class and skill systems, this CRPG's tedious encounter design, forgettable characters, sluggish narrative, and bevy of performance issues make it a difficult game to recommend.

Crymachina boxart

Crymachina Review

Despite the narrative not fully coming together in the end, as well as some repetitive gameplay structure, Crymachina manages to be a compelling RPG. Regardless of its uneven nature and short duration, I think it may leave a lasting impression on me - at least a little bit.

World of Horror boxart

World of Horror Review

This turn-based horror RPG took its sweet time to full release, but it was well worth it with an addictive gameplay loop, a compelling battle system, and a stunningly beautiful visual aesthetic.

Detective Pikachu Returns boxart

Detective Pikachu Returns Review

The case of Detective Pikachu has never been fully closed, but now Detective Pikachu Returns, this time to the Nintendo Switch. I enjoyed my time with Detective Pikachu Returns, nonetheless, Detective Pikachu Returns just isn’t a very good game.

Lords of the Fallen (2023) boxart

Lords of the Fallen Review

Lords of the Fallen has a well-crafted world, interesting stories, cool bosses, and plenty of player customization on offer. However, a frustrating dual-world mechanic holds back this RPG from achieving excellence.

Long Gone Days boxart

Long Gone Days Review

Long Gone Days is a project that’s been in the works for many years. With grating hand holding, but a decent story and grounded characters, Long Gone Days is a good choice for those interested in a narrative-focused RPG.

Baten Kaitos: I & II HD Remaster boxart

Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster Review

While this remaster might not be to the quality that the Baten Kaitos series deserves, it still is a lovely way to play and revisit these classics after so long.

Fate/Samurai Remnant boxart

Fate/Samurai Remnant Review

Fate/Samurai Remnant takes advantage of a new, grounded setting, a fresh cast of characters, and a gripping narrative to serve as both an approachable gateway to Fate for newbies and a potent fan service vehicle for veterans.

Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest - The Adventure of Dai boxart

Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai Review

A disappointing game adaptation for one of the best Dragon Quest spin-off series that possesses major structural and gameplay shortcomings.

Everhood boxart

Everhood Eternity Edition Review

Everhood just wasn’t as thought-provoking as the subtitle “An Ineffable Tale of the Inexpressible Divine Moments of Truth” might suggest. While I found some enjoyment in the later part of the game, it didn’t hit all the right notes for me.

Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless boxart

Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless Review

If you liked previous Disgaea games — grinding your levels up to max, performing increasingly higher damaging attacks, and seeing a mass of numbers fill your screen — Disgaea 7 continues that trend and amplifies it further.

Cyberpunk 2077 boxart

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Review

Phantom Liberty itself is an all-time great expansion, taking all of the best elements of Cyberpunk 2077 and cranking them all up to eleven.

Rune Factory 3 Special Review

Rune Factory 3 Special brings a fan favourite entry into the modern era relatively untouched, for better or worse.

The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails boxart

The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails Review

The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails invokes a feeling of an earlier era of Falcom in some of the best ways. With a charming presentation and commendable gameplay, this is a satisfying game and an easy recommendation to anyone looking for a light-hearted action RPG romp.

Lies of P boxart

Lies of P Review

Despite its unique weapon system and generally friendlier structuring, Lies of P hews a little too closely to its inspirations to rise above feeling like something of an also-ran. But even also-rans can be polished, attractive, and exciting experiences in their own right.

Fae Farm boxart

Fae Farm Review

Newcomer to the farming sim genre, Fae Farm, looks to shake things up with its quality of life improvements and unique twists, resulting in a lovely game.

Sea of Stars boxart

Sea of Stars Review

Sea of Stars presents a potent mix of combat systems bolstered by a charming story and gorgeous graphical presentation that captures the essence of the turn-based classics.

Anonymous;Code boxart

Anonymous;Code Review

Anonymous;Code managed to grab my attention in a way that other SciADV games weren’t able to, due to its captivating story and excellent pacing.
