A hilarious JRPG romp with far more than laughs on its side.
One of 2015's very best gets a well-handled port to PlayStation - and Toby Fox's wonderful RPG finds the perfect home on the Vita.
It's hard to express just how much I adore Undertale without spoiling anything significant, but that's what I love about it. It tells its story in such a dynamic way, and with such a great understanding of the RPG player's mindset, that it couldn't have been told in any other way. It's a masterfully crafted experience that I won't forget any time soon.
Undertale is a superb indie role-player that proves once again that it's not graphics that make a game entertaining but gameplay and great ideas.
Compelling characters and music come together with an eclectic and clever combat system. Undertale is an intensely curated experience that's worthy of your attention.
Undertale exceeds expectations, when it isn't busy subverting them.
Wonderful characters, ample secrets, tons of replayability. Boss fights can be tedious. A subversive spin on role-playing games that's packed with heart and humor.
Undertale combines charming characters, smart writing, and a unique combat system to make one of this fall's biggest surprises.
Regardless of its indie status, Undertale is one of the best and most inspired RPGs in years. By playing with traditional, turn-based mechanics, creator Toby Fox has crafted an experience with a legitimate surprise around every corner. If you have a PC and ten bucks, you owe it to yourself to play this amazing game.
It's the kind of game that I'll want to replay many times in order to see how all of the various choices play out, and I'm sure I will remember it fondly for years to come. I hope everyone else can find as much joy from playing Undertale as I have!
