Critic Reviews for Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles

Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles might struggle to stand up to modern RPGs, but it's a thoroughly charming bit of gaming history.

Memories of Marl Kingdom improves on its predecessor's weaknesses. Battles offer up a challenge and need to actually be thought about. The chapters in the game are set before, during, and after the events of the first two Rhapsody games, giving a deeper insight into the stories. Again, injected with musical intermissions, it’s an all-round better experience than Ballad of the Little Princess, albeit a much briefer one.

Rhapsody II: Ballad of the Little Princess is a vastly improved sequel that is full of fun, charm, and whimsy while offering a much-needed challenge with its fresh take on a familiar battle system.

Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles lets players in the West finally explore the final two titles in the Rhapsody trilogy for the first time ever. Even if these two JRPGS are never going to be all time masterpieces, they are still great fun today, thanks to their unique charm.

Rhapsody: The Marl Kingdom Chronicles is a must-buy for anyone seeking an RPG experience that makes it easy to see the beauty in the world around you.

The simplistic JRPG gameplay was charming, even when it was first released, but it’s clear that this was designed for 90s gamers who simply wanted to experience a wholesome anime on their PlayStations. It’s unfortunate that the otherwise solid localization didn’t include English singing because the musical segments are a highlight in both games.

Nearly 25 years after their respective releases, Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles finally brings two good PS1 and PS2 RPGs once exclusive to Japan for modern platforms. Although they are not must-see games, both bring several unique elements that make them very fun and that will captivate fans of the genre who have never played them.
