Ruiner provides a wonderful experience for fans of this style of the game without overstaying it welcome. With an easy pickup and play feeling, fast and interesting combat, a simple story, and tons of replayability, I can’t recommend it enough. Ruiner deserves its place on the shelf right next to classic games like Hotline Miami and Robotron:2084.
Even with Death end re;Quest 2's short run time and balancing issues, it is still a unique horror RPG that should be looked at if you’re a fan of other Compile Hearts RPGs. If you haven’t played Compile Heart’s other games, this is a solid entry point.
