Jin Conception Critic Reviews

Jin Conception is a great concept but the initial gameplay may scare gamers off. Nonetheless, players who stick to it will be rewarded with a long adventure that spans around 20 hours to complete. There are some very nice ideas presented here but not all of them hit the mark, with a few bugs that also hindered my experience. However, for all its flaws Jin Conception isn't a bad game, with the visuals and music being great throughout with some of the game's mechanics improving as you progress.

Jin Conception is certainly a whirlwind of feelings. While the combat is very well done and the mechanics of social deduction instigates curiosity, the numerous bugs and wrong decisions in the game design make it tiring, frustrating and disappointing. There is a potential hidden in the midst of the problems that appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel. At the moment, it is just an RPG that delivers an experience of the nostalgic games of the 16-bit era, but in a mediocre way.
