The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III Review

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is the third entry in the long-running Trails series in the Legend of Heroes franchise, developed by Nihon Falcom. Although the series has never reached mainstream popularity, the Trails of Cold Steel is considered as a hidden gem among the most devoted JRPG fans.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose Review

In many ways, The Caligula Effect: Overdose is refreshingly low-key and intelligent within its genre. It turns its obvious paragons into a personal drama of its own kind, choosing subtle while others swag, and going surprisingly deep while others pretend.

Atelier Arland Series Deluxe Pack Review

The end result of playing Atelier Arland trilogy is equivalent to finishing a strong book series. The individual pieces are engaging on their own, but together they craft an experience that is of S quality.

Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time Review

Chamber of Time is slow-paced, looks a bit drab and it can be repetitive and awkward to play. In a way, it’s much like Akko herself. She’s far from perfect but spunky and open-hearted, making her irresistibly disarming. There’s a strong positive vibe going on that rubs on you, and it helps in overcoming the game’s shortcomings.

Lost Sphear Review

Tokyo RPG Factory's sophomore release, Lost Sphear, has me slightly bewildered. It was never exactly touted as a game that was going to revolutionize the genre. I've never been the one to yearn for the games of yesteryear, which is why Lost Sphear feels like a throwback JRPG checking all the boxes on the genre nostalgia spreadsheet.

Demon Gaze II Review

Demon Gaze II is a confounding experience, with enjoyable combat and a strong premise undercut by poor writing, inconsistent tone and graphics that really belong to a tiny screen. Hardcore fans of JRPGs that lie on the fringe of mainstream gaming might appreciate its quirky humor but for the rest of us, there are better RPGs to spend our limited time with.

Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon Review

Sometimes all you want to do at the end of a long day is to sit down and murder a couple hundred (thousand?) demons. Nights of Azure 2 gives you the chance to do just that while fighting alongside allies and a couple pets as well, but is this an enjoyable demon-slaying adventure or just a fight to be avoided?

Earthlock: Festival of Magic Review

In the end, while the story is regrettably un-memorable and fairly lacking, the game play makes up for it with several clever, strategic spins on time-tested game play mechanics. Back that up with solid graphics and audio and you have yourself an old-school RPG that should scratch that itch you've been having.
