It will not set the world on fire for open-world RPGs, since this is a collection of borrowed ideas from many other games on the market and does not innovate the genre, but Biomutant is enjoyable, if a somewhat formulaic approach to this genre. What makes it stand out against some of those other games it has borrowed ideas from is the fascinating setting and bizarre character design. It is strange in all the right places but just cannot jump above the games it took inspiration from for its gameplay.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy's core elements come together to make for understanding and engaging friendly JRPG. It has the option to automate complex elements and the battle system can be grasped early on without hours of learning, helped with the solo focused action.
Persona 5 Strikers is an explosive return to the world of Persona 5. Care has been taken to keep the essence of Atlus’ RPG intact to recapture the soul of Persona. Omega Force could have easily gone the standard Warriors route, but they changed their plan, adding in their own little twist to the formula by adjusting the battle system to real time and streamlining the experience. Combat is exciting and quick, the story interesting, once again putting the wonderful characters into the spotlight and adding more to their already defined traits. Persona 5 Strikers might not be the full fat Persona experience nor a true Warriors game – it is certainly targeting the Persona fans more than Warriors fans – but it is a quality extension to the Persona 5 story, a worthy summer road trip that might be advertised as a spin-off, but truly feels more like a sequel with a new flavour sprinkled on top.
