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.

Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists is a decent crossover game for the Atelier franchise, linking 20 years of the series together.

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.

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.

I'll always want the mainline games, and I don't see myself continually coming back to Let's Go like I have done the standard entries, but as a gateway for newer, younger players, I can't think of anything more perfect that Let's Go. I can't wait to see the smiles on kids' faces as they start up their first ever Pokémon adventure.

CrossCode is one of the most endearing and fun action RPGs I've ever played, though it's not without its frustrations.

Style without substance, State of Mind never pushes the boundaries of its genre stereotypes.

The very definition of mediocre, Shining Resonance Refrain fails to stand out from the crowd in another packed year of RPGs.

A beautiful, chaotic adventure, Dragon's Crown Pro is worth a go if you've never played the original.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is one witch's brew you definitely don't want to drink.

A truly unique adventure, Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is not that far from sweeter waters.

With a little bit more polish, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT could be great, but as it is now it's a huge disappointment.

A solid continuation of the series, but a bit too same-y for some.

A welcome rerelease for this 1993 relic, Romancing SaGa 2 is endearing, interesting and difficult for better or worse.

Nights of Azure 2 was the chance to improve on its predecessors potential, but it completely drops the ball.
