The attempt to make significant changes from the previous title was successful. Visual and system upgrades transformed it into a rewarding fighting game, bringing a new vitality. While efforts were made to enhance the tutorial and controls, it's regrettable that they did not integrate well with the story.

Persona 5 Tactica is an SRPG that shines with adorable art, excellent music, and dazzling creativities. However, somewhat easy gameplay and shallow strategic depth fail to provide players with the engaging challenge they might be seeking. It could be a great experience for the fans of the Phantom Thieves but may not be as appealing to those of the SRPG genre.

An unconventional rhythm game that stands out from the ordinary. In 'Trombone Champ,' where you can discover hidden content by collecting various tokens through your performance. While it may become monotonous with its simple repetitive gameplay, it becomes twice as enjoyable when played with friends.

8.3 / 10.0 - Ys X: Nordics
Oct 5, 2023

Ys X successfully expands and evolves Falcom's action style. A clean, flowing story that befits the adventures of the young Adol is presented, accompanied by excellent BGM. Moreover, offering plenty of additional enjoyment through New Game+ was also delightful. The challenging content is also quite engaging, giving a glimpse of Falcom's efforts in preparing for a new era.

mimimi games successfully weaved fantasy and magic into pirate's age. While the UI and mission structure is a bit disappointing, unique art and attractive sound design, as well as strategy features with various sailors are making it a higher standard for 'stealth strategy' game.

8.8 / 10.0 - Chained Echoes
Jan 20, 2023

Chained Echoes is a well-made turn based RPG with 16-bit nostalgia and classic JRPG identity. Although there are some elements that are not quite fitted to the story as it flows, it is a highly recommended title for those who love JRPGs.

7 / 10.0 - Harvestella
Nov 10, 2022

Are you looking for a fantasy life with beautiful scenery and deep stories? 'Harvestella' can be one of your choices only if you are okay with suffering from terrible management system for stamina and time. While the combat system is okay at least, overall motion is somewhat awkward. Also, Insufficient convenience features are enough to make you think the game has a pretty big room for improvement.

6.5 / 10.0 - Valkyrie Elysium
Oct 6, 2022

A Valkyrie series transformed from a turn-based game into an action. While this changed system itself is not bad, terrible camera work is ruining the overall experience. More to that, repetitive gameplay structure and mediocre story are also disappointing. Don't have much choice but to look forward to a better Valkyrie title in the future.

The attempt of adopting the element of a real-time tactical battle into a strategic RPG was good. While attractive characters and main stories are its strength, the narrative and approach to lead the story seem to fail to reveal its charm. More to that, individuality of the game's battle is faded due to systematic limits and there are few strategic elements. Despite these problems, you will be able to enjoy it if it suits your taste.

Endling is a very impressive game with the way it delivers message without lines, excellent visuals and sounds that match the atmosphere. Though the frequent loading time on Switch and repetitive gameplay are a bit disappointing, the game is faithful with delivering a message which is quite intense.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak reached even closer to the franchises's core with new monsters, their patterns and overall action. Although there is little novelty, it is a DLC that has been satisfactorily expanded the original for fans of the series. I am not saying there are no shortcomings, but the game provides so much fun that you don't have to worry about them.

Jun 28, 2022

DNF Duel is a fighting game with great respect to its original IP. While the game providing deep sense of duel, its easy control system makes anyone can adapt into the game's mechanic. Though the collectable system and convenience in training mode are not as good as its graphic and sound quality, it is certain that both DNF fans and fighting fans can enjoy this.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is the best game to start a new Eiyden Chronicle series. The game contains battle through link action, smooth sound, harmonious 2D+3D graphic design and well-balanced story. You can hardly tell that all of these are perfect, but the game has enough quality to enjoy without any concerns.

8.3 / 10.0 - Tunic
Apr 2, 2022

It is easy to misunderstand TUNIC as an adventure reminiscent of 'Zelda' for its cute, fairytale-like graphics and sound, But the reality is different. While the fox hero grows up overcoming boss battles, the unexpected difficulty stimulates you to challenge more. The catalog styled story and twist also show the game's charms.

"Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin" is the first action RPG in the Final Fantasy series which aims for an action with great difficulty. While the attempt looked good, the results were utterly disgraceful. The game is covered with excessive lighting effects, half-hearted storylines and failed to motivate players to grow their skills. Sadly, 'action' became the only good merit of this game.

Aug 7, 2021

'Boss waves', it would be the best word about 'Eldest Souls'. All processes were simplified with only a few tests and elements for players to take a break or explore shortly. Other things were totally focused on combat.
