'Valkyria Chronicles 4' improves on almost every element from previous games in the series, but it has a few hiccups in difficulty near the end of the game. The development team has definitely learned what the major issues in previous games were, but seem to have ignored some of the smaller problems the game has.
Culdcept: Revolt merges turn-based strategy and deck building to create an oddly unique experience. It does a great job of pacing itself and introducing new gimmicks to the player at a constant rate. It is not a game for those short on patience though, as matches can be a bit of a time sink.
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony brings back a lot of what made the first two games great. Class trials are fun and tense, the visuals are weird and quirky, and it has the best leading cast in the franchise. It still has a lot of the same issues as earlier games too with frustrating plot twists and some characters being less useful than others. If you played the first 2 games, expect more of the same in every aspect.
All of the positive things in Nier: Automata outweigh the negative. Its story is absurd, yet interesting, its characters feel human despite their mechanical makeup, and it’s all layered with unique gameplay elements that keep it feeling fresh and fun. Automata makes a very strong first impression, and it’s able to carry that weight through its myriad of story arcs and endings.
