Although the story and characters are nothing new to RPGs, the strategy gameplay systems truly stand out in their seemingly simple execution.
In this way, I would argue Left Alive is the purest survival game ever: if you can play to the end, you can survive anything.
The definitive return to a heartfelt classic in the Final Fantasy series.
A staple steampunk fantasy RPG that has learned well from its predecessors.
Delving into these beautiful dungeons, while repetitive, can be rewarding if players have the skill. Barring that, they will at least learn that a problem can be solved by throwing enough money at it and buying a better sword.
Charming beyond its flaws, players (especially young ones) will have fun adventuring with their dragon and learn that compassion, understanding, and good food can make the world a better place!
If players invest the time in exploring the island thoroughly and figure out how to adequately manipulate the many gameplay systems, they will have a really fun and rewarding time.
