YIIK does something different, taking some of the best memories of classic games, folding it in with brilliant writing, and creating one of the most evocative RPGs I’ve ever played that didn’t have “Final” in the title. For fans of the genre, great writing, or supernatural mystery, this game should be immediately on a lot of 2019 Must Play lists.
As a Free-To-Play game, Closers is surprisingly generous to players. Costumes, an elite status buff which confers a daily reward of crafting materials and a fatigue reduction potion, some additional inventory slots, extra crafting materials, and temporary buffs are all purchasable from the store for real money; but are also given away daily from the online store.
Mastering the tracks at higher difficulties may become repetitive, and for players not interested in the eWRC challenge, the game may lack enough multiplayer aspects to hold interest for a long haul. However, it’s also incredibly rewarding to finally master a course, and the feeling of racing along narrow lanes at high speed is unmatched.
