Fantasian Review

Fantasian is a wonderful JRPG, even though the difficulty feels out of pace with the rest of the experience.

Dodgeball Academia Review

Dodgeball Academia Review

Brazilian indie studio Pocket Trap captures the creative spirit of 90's cartoons in this odd marriage between the sport of dodgeball and traditional RPGs.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

Skyward Sword HD is a welcome improvement to the original game, but will likely do little to change the minds of any detractors.

Final Fantasy 1-3 Pixel Remaster Review

The first batch of the Pixel Remaster series of Final Fantasy games are now out, and while in many regards they are good versions of these historic games, some aspects and issues hold them back from being the best ways to experience them.

NEO: The World Ends With You Review

NEO: The World Ends With You Review

NEO: The World Ends With You does a wonderful job recapturing what made this formula work so well on the DS, but in a more approachable way.

Cris Tales Review

This love letter to classic JRPGs has a lot of heart & charm, but is a bit rough around the edges.

World's End Club Review

World's End Club Review

World's End Club comes from a legacy of murder mystery visual novels. However, this lighthearted successor doesn't quite meet the same standard. A wholesome but underwhelming tale.

Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny Review

Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny Review

Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny is the latest entry in the long-lived strategy RPG series and there have been quite a few changes and not just the leap from 2D sprites to 3D models. Using the Super Reincarnation spell, Zed reincarnates into different worlds taking the most optimal path to success until he achieves his wish of defeating the God of Destruction.

Scarlet Nexus Review

Scarlet Nexus Review

Scarlet Nexus contains just about everything you’d want to see from a new game IP. Clear ambition, innovative gameplay, gorgeous visuals, and room to improve. A lot of room to improve, but it's still a commendable effort.

Legend of Mana Remaster Review - A Legend For A Whole New Generation

Released more than two decades ago, The Legend of Mana amazed players with its striking art and soundtrack. It redefined the series with its more open-ended narrative and gameplay structure, and now it's time for a whole new generation of players to experience the world of Fa'Diel.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Episode Intermission Review 

Final Fantasy VII Remake Episode Intermission Review 

Yuffie’s episode is thrilling fan-service and a welcome slice of more of the same for fans of FF7 Remake, but it's also easily skippable.

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster Review

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster Review

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne is a fantastic RPG, but its remaster does the bare minimum to get a passing grade compared to other modern remasters of classics.

New Pokemon Snap Review

New Pokemon Snap is (almost) just more of the same, but it's those small changes that hold it back from true greatness.
