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.

An excellent battle system and gorgeous soundtrack create an immersive entry that's a whole lot of fun, but Bandai Namco needs to polish their series a little more.

An extremely personal game which confronts cancer head on, it shines brightest when telling its story and examining the effects of grief.

While it starts off fun, Nights of Azure gets boring very quickly and never seems to fully utilize its array of other features.

A quirky and fun adventure that could go far with a few little tweaks.

Ara Fell is a solid example of what RPGMaker games can be, and while it never wows it's certainly a lot of fun.

Tokyo Babel could've been so much better, but it tries so hard to be epic only to result in an overlong and boring narrative.

Exist Archive is proof you can sometimes have too much of a good thing, and doesn't have enough unique ideas of its own to stand out.

The Little Acre is all too fleeting an experience, but it's adorable, sweet, and full of potential.
