Reverie Knights Tactics Reviews
Punishing but rewarding, Reverie Knights Tactics provides an enjoyable challenge for any fan of strategic turn-based combat. Battles may not offer much in the way of a unique twist, but it’s the game’s art style that truly makes it stand out. Reverie Knights Tactics‘ colourful, hand-drawn visuals are simply beautiful – and even if you’re getting pummelled on the battlefield, at least you’ll enjoy the view.
Reverie Knights Tactics is a good tactical RPG experience, but one that falls short of a top-shelf one overall.
Reverie Knights Tactics is a strategy game with lots of thought and beauty, yet is somewhat punishing.
I enjoyed my time with Reverie Knights Tactics, and I think there's a solid foundation of a strategy title here. However, the disappointing finish to the quest, and lack of gameplay depth outside of combat cast a cloud over the entire experience.
Reverie Knights Tactics gets 2022 off to a wonderful start. Between its fun dialogue, great gameplay, and stunning visuals, this is a game that’s not to be missed. If this is what 40 Giants serves up with their first title, the future looks bright indeed.
Reverie Knights Tactics is a simple tactical RPG, one with a lot of potential that’s never quite explored as much as it perhaps should be. Despite its story flaws and simple battle tactics, this is still a fun game to play. With no microtransactions, predatory lootboxes or noteworthy bugs at launch, this is not a bad title to splash £20 on.
A turn-based strategy game with remarkably solid, pretty and entertaining foundations, Reverie Knights Tactics is a good if unspectacular entry into the genre. Its gameplay and design could have benefitted from additional depth, but this compact package offers a pleasantly enjoyable romp with even more hope for future entries. Completely usurp other tactics games it likely won’t, but there’s enough here to have you entering your own reverie in this tale.
As a long-time fan of SRPGs, I've never played anything quite like Reverie Knights Tactics before and I'm glad that I did. It can be a punishing and trying experience at times but once your strategies pay off; holy hot darn, is it rewarding stuff!
Reverie Knights Tactics is a beautiful looking Tactical Role-Playing Game experience with a structure that is a bit too linear.
A pleasant and short adventure in 2D, with some problems of balancing the clashes but with an interesting world to discover.

Reverie Knights Tactics offers players a unique adventure with a variety of difficult challenges and combat scenarios. Players need to react quickly and develop different strategies for each type of enemy. The various enemy types to learn and conquer will keep players busy throughout the game. Although the story ends a bit abruptly, Reverie Knights Tactics has hours of content for players to explore and various optional activities to complete before reaching the final boss battle. Players can experience a fun and entertaining turn-based strategy game in Reverie Knights Tactics.
Reverie Knights Tactics is a decent turn-based strategy RPG that fans of the genre will likely enjoy… for the most part. The Order vs Chaos system and optional side-quests provide additional depth to the game’s plot. Furthermore, the strategy gameplay fundamentally works very well, encouraging thoughtful planning and smart use of stage hazards. However, its balance issues, primarily the lack of post-combat recovery and limited character customisation and re-spec options, can lead to Reverie Knights Tactics’ gameplay wearing on you over time. It’s an imperfect game, but there are enough neat ideas to be worth checking out.
If 2022 is going to be the year where I end up slamming dozens of games for being written like amateurish fan fiction, so be it. YA-style writing might sell well, but to be perfectly blunt about this it's good writing in only the most exceedingly rare cases. For narrative-heavy genres, like RPGs, the tonal dissonance that YA writing forces into to work to make it read and sound "modern" even if it's set in a world of swords and sorcery, is unacceptable. I could have and should have liked Reverie Tactics. In practice, I found it infuriating. Developers: please stop pitching your work at this level.
Reverie Knights Tactics is a fun tactical RPG with an interesting storyline and many mechanics to play around with. While the controls might take some getting used to, the overall gameplay is solid.
Reverie Knights Tactics is an interesting RPG that tells a fascinating if a bit short story. Once you beat the game, you can't help but think "That can't be it, where is the rest of it?" and wish to see the plot develop further.
Reverie Knights Tactics feels like a run-of-the-mill strategy game that isn't quite bad but fails to do anything particularly memorable.
The plot and the lack of localization to Spanish are undoubtedly 2 of the factors that I disliked the most of all, something that is minimally worsened by a gameplay that although it is not bad, I did not find it really interesting either. The latter would surely have been easier to ignore if at least, the narrative aspect turned out to be more interesting, something that as I already mentioned, probably is not for the least pretentious player of all. However, if they are one of those who enjoy this genre, perhaps I could tell them to get hold of it during some sale, but if I would not say that they simply skip this title, since I do not see it recommended for players who are not habitual of turn-based combats.

Reverie Knights Tactics is a solid experience for anyone looking for a tactical battle title with a classic look and plot. There are no major innovations, but all the core systems work well, offering plenty of ways to deal with the combat puzzles at its core. Aurora is a solid protagonist, and the rest of the cast is likable.
Overall though, a complete run with side quests and puzzles should run about ten or so hours showing you how one set of decisions pans out before going back in for the other set. Hosting a solid combat system and visual presentation followed by a good musical track, I look forward to seeing what comes next from 40 Giants Entertainment as I don’t think they are quite done yet with Reverie Knights Tactics.
Reverie Knights Tactics is a great RPG, with a unique art style, captivating characters, a deep story and rich in details. Combat is challenging and tactically deep, and requires the player to think ahead when making decisions. Even those who don't enjoy a challenge will enjoy it playing in Story mode. It is a highly recommended game for tactical RPG enthusiasts, especially fans of Holy Avenger and the Tormenta universe.
