Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden is an overall more streamlined experience than other entries. With the frequency of releases in the series compared to the number of improvements made, the cards are starting to wear a bit thin.
RPG Time: The Legend of Wright is a game made by an aspiring designer who's currently a school-kid, or at least that's the game's premise. The focus of this game is largely on style, but it's not entirely devoid of substance. It is however held back a little by some annoying controls and Kenta's railroading.
Coromon is a game filled with potential but past sinking sands and perplexing puzzles it starts to fall flat. Fans of the genre will be delighted by the levels of customization thanks to the potential system and easy skill switching. The shake-ups do let Coromon stand on its own and create an enjoyable experience, but it could've evolved to be something a little more.
The Forsaken Maiden is too similar to its predecessor to declare it as being significantly improved, with the greater difference lying largely in its narrative. It is a complementary experience that fans of the first are likely to enjoy just as much.
Atelier Sophie 2 manages to synthesise old and new in a way befitting improvements to the franchise while leaving it comfortably with the rest of the Mysterious games. It shares some minor similarities with Sophie's first game but is generally quite different. It doesn't quite reach the heights of Atelier Ryza 2, but will still definitely keep most Atelier fans quite happy.
Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars is one of two recently released smaller scale games dropped by Square Enix last October with minimal promotion. More experienced gamers might bemoan the straightforward gameplay or lack of difficulty, but those who are interested in the charm and humour only need bring their cards to the table
