Alana Hagues's Reviews

Born in England, and living near Brighton, Alana has been writing about video games professionally since 2015. Her love of RPGs knows no bounds, she is particularly interested in Japanese RPGs, both old and new, but is always ready to try out the next big thing. A quick way to her heart is to mention Sega's classic Dreamcast RPG, Skies of Arcadia. As well as writing about video games, she runs RPGFan's Reviews and Previews department, and has been in charge there since 2016. You might also recognise her from Random and Retro Encounter - if you hear the British voice, you've found her. Outside of reviews, Alana loves to do nothing more than stay at home with her two dogs, read a book, maybe drink some coffee, and go on long, lonely walks along the beach no matter the weather. She also likes to make a lot of noise on Twitter, usually about her current non-review game.

Indivisible takes three different genres and melds them together expertly to create something wholly unique.

The best way to play Final Fantasy VIII, and there's nothing a patch or two can't fix.

65% - Oninaki
Aug 21, 2019

I'm frustrated because I wanted to like Oninaki a lot more than I do. It's absolutely not a bad game; rather, it's yet another "serviceable" outing from Tokyo RPG Factory, who continue to try their hardest.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 retains the core of the first game and makes many little tweaks that improve things for the best, but it still has the same glaring weakness.

This is the Mana series as it should always be remembered.

65% - Tardy

Tardy's uncomfortable sci-fi atmosphere and beautiful pixel visuals are the biggest successes for this otherwise by-the-numbers adventure game.

Arcade Spirits's warm heart can be felt under its clumsy exterior.

VA-11 HALL-A is an exciting experiment that I hope can be built upon further with the sequel.

There are better Grimm-esque fairy tales out there.

Minor blemishes aside, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition lives up to its namesake and is still among the best Tales of games ever.
