Critic Reviews for The DioField Chronicle

Real-time tactics meets old-timey politics in The DioField Chronicle, a fast-paced JRPG where quick and fun combat are paired with a generic story and some awkward controls.

Read full review

The semi-real-time battles are fun but a lack of depth soon dulls your enthusiasm for this limp Fire Emblem wannabe, as the rest of the game is taken up by tedious, choice-free conversations and lengthy cut scenes.

The Diofield Chronicle is a pedestrian real-time tactics game that suffers from a lack of imagination.

The DioField Chronicle delivers a unique real-time spin on the usual tactics RPG experience, but it's marred by a boring story, unlikable characters, and inconsistent presentation. While the one saving grace is the addictive and always rewarding combat, missions fail to deliver the evolution or variety that some might expect. Overall, it's an interesting game, but not an altogether great one.

The Diofield Chronicle has been a pleasant surprise. Square Enix pulls out of its sleeve a new tactical role-playing IP with deep and challenging real-time combat that brings a touch of freshness to the genre. Despite dragging narrative problems, if you like SRPG and master English, this game can earn a place on your console or PC.

A tactical rpg where tactics is not deep enough. The story and characters are believable and unexpectedly logical, but in a genre where strategy is an integral part of the experience you would expect to be actually strategic to win. This is not the exact case, sadly, but it's still an enjoyable experience, though.

Where Octopath was fairly heavily promoted by Nintendo, however, it does feel like Diofield has been tossed into the ocean of the market to sink or swim. It’s the sort of game that probably doesn’t float very easily, either. It’s the sort of product that requires some marketing-shaped buoyancy aids. It was never going to cruise to success - and now I fear it never will. But it’s worth a look – and hopefully its ideas will go forward in other future projects. They’re certainly worth revisiting.

The DioField Chronicle is an epic strategy RPG where you're fully engrossed in its story, and throughout every beautifully constructed battle. It features an in-depth battle structure and upgrading system, where you're constantly mixing up strategies on the fly.
