Warriors Orochi 4 will not turn a non-believer into a believer. If you are already uninterested in the Warriors franchise, or musou games in general, Warriors Orochi 4 isn't going to change your mind. Yet, I imagine that for most fans, they're merely looking for more of the same. Despite being formulaic and repetitive, you know what you're getting with a Warriors game. And if that's your thing, you'll no doubt have some fun with Warriors Orochi 4.
I do love Valkyria Chronicles 4 for many reasons. Its characters are more endearing than any I had encountered in the series thus far and its systems and mechanics are still as engaging as ever. However, there is still plenty going against even its most positive attributes.
Like most games, how good of a time you have with Haunted Dungeons: Hyakki Castle will ultimately depend on what you bring to the experience yourself. If you're hoping for the next great dungeon crawler, then you most likely will be disappointed.
Slime-San: Superslime Edition goes the extra mile in almost every regard. As it makes its way onto more platforms, I can only be thankful that it got another shot in the spotlight. Because dammit, it deserves all the time there it can get.
In Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings, there's a charming story and intricate systems that help make it one of the best entries to date. I can't think of a better way to help celebrate 20 years of this long-running series.
The foundation laid by the game offers a surprisingly fun experience, even for those who aren't that interested in the franchise, but thanks to poor AI, a boring story, and uninteresting characters, it isn't able to become a great JRPG in its own right.
If you were expecting Zwei: The Arges Adventure to be a hidden gem finally unearthed to play, you'll be plenty disappointed. While there's a lot to love within The Arges Adventure, it's mostly superficial due to a frustrating combat system that forces most of the game to become a slog.
