Grand Kingdom is the best non-traditional role playing game I've played this year, and may even take a place on my end of the year list once I fully take in how outstanding it is. But right now, I'm doing things I couldn't have dreamed of being fun yet are, a common trademark of Grand Kingdom's incredible design.
Grand Kingdom is not a typical role playing game in the slightest. It might have a very charming and simple look with a fantastic soundtrack I might add, but it's completely deep and offers players a ton of content to get through, characters to level up, and missions to complete. It's just a unique experience that comes highly recommend to RPG fans and even with the game being on the PS4, the Vita is perfect for this style of game and the way it delivers it missions and content.
In all, this game is absolutely great in terms of design. Its story-telling can get a little weak at points, but just how deep these mechanics can go and ultimately build into each other is almost perfect.
If you're a fan of the genre this is almost certainly going to keep you busy for months; if not, the extensive demo on the PlayStation store is absolutely worth a download to see whether it's right for you.
Grand Kingdom offers so much depth that hundreds of hours can easily be poured into the game.
Grand Kingdom is a highly addictive tactic based experience that blends both online and offline very well. While there are incentives to play online and obtain experience and equipment faster, the offline modes sport quests and manners in order to level or re-level troops as needed without worrying about that monthly bandwidth cap. Just make sure to log in once a day to climb the ladder of attendance rewards.
If you're looking for a fun and inviting JRPG to pass the time within, then why not give Grand Kingdom a try, you won't be disappointed.
Grand Kingdom is definitely a must-buy game for anyone looking for a new kind of strategy RPG.
The art style and the graphics, in general, are really stunning with lots of attention to detail which is amazing. The game overall is quite complex, and you will spend a lot of time working on the tutorials. Overall I had an amazing time playing the game for my Grand Kingdom review, as it's certainly a game you just can't miss. The Vita version is absolutely identical to the PS4 version, with the only real difference is the graphics are scaled back a bit, because the Vita obviously doesn't have the same horsepower as the PS4. The game is also compatible with the PS TV so that you can make the most of your portable game purchase!
One of my common gripes about role-playing games is that the genre has largely been stagnant. Too many games rely on the same concepts and mechanics that fans have seen for decades. That's what makes 'Grand Kingdom' feel so refreshing. Sure, Monochrome's debut has its fair share of flaws, but it also offers up a unique brand of gameplay that really isn't found elsewhere. If you're looking for a role-playing game that is trying to do something different, and innovative with online play, then this is certainly worth checking out.
