Critic Reviews for Wolfstride
Wolfstride is the rule-of-cool - it's a game all about vibes and style and sick robots, and it never gets old or feels out-of-touch. That hefty amount of style certainly carries the game through it's slower moments, but those are also smartly broken up by some of the most interesting turn-based battles I've seen in an RPG. There are rough spots to Wolfstride, for sure, but it's the coolest game I've played in years, and it absolutely knows it.
Wolfstride might have gotten off to a rough start, but I think if you go into it knowing that it’s a story-forward game, you’ll enjoy it quite a bit. I ended up liking the game way more than I thought possible. It kept surprising me. It hooked me with its style, then its humor, and when I thought I knew everything, it showed me its heart. For only $18 CAD, Wolfstride has my strongest recommendation.
Wolfstride is a role-playing game about three former partners-in-crime coming to a turning point in their lives. When they inherit a junkyard mecha called Cowboy, they reunite to enter the planet’s most elite mecha competition: the Ultimate Golden God Tournament.
Wolfstride has its flaws, but if you're willing to get past them, it ends up having a unique charm in its story, characters and combat that's worth checking out. Sure, the giant anime mech battles may be a main draw, but you'll stay for the clever bits of character development and glimpses into the history and personalities of these rascals as you get to know them. Wolfstride doesn't always land with a huge mechanical blow, but it can still deliver a decent hit overall.
I wished for the game to have less of Catman's running and, maybe, more ways for its secondary characters to interact with one another. But these are minor issues with a great experience. Wolfstride shows how well OTA IMON can blend narrative and gameplay and I look forward to seeing what kind of game they work on next.
Wolfstride stands out for being a unique and extremely exotic game, full of style and personality. The striking characters deliver unique moments, which are presented with great art direction in a mix of retro and manga style, packed with a good soundtrack that perfectly matches the mood. Despite having some pacing issues, it's an extremely fun game, especially in the combat parts, and a surprising experience, worthy of the crazy games of the best Japanese game designers.
