Rainbow Moon for PS3: Release Trailer
Critic Reviews for Rainbow Moon
SideQuest Studios' re-release isn't all that different from its past iterations, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The world is still as expansive and pretty as ever, although a lot of its niggling flaws have found their way into this edition, too. However, this is still a solid adventure that promises oodles of gameplay and sports a satisfying battle system, so fantasy fans could do far worse than invest their hard-earned gold in Rainbow Moon.
Rainbow Moon for the Vita is everything you expect it to be and maybe a touch more. There isn't much different when compared to the PS3 version, with the exception of the cross-save feature and the better menu presentation. But of course, this means you can now take your addictive adventuring on the go, and that's reason to celebrate.
Rainbow Moon is an in-depth game with nice visuals. It offers plenty of game time to those who are familiar with the RPG genre, but I also believe it would not deter those who are not familiar to games of this ilk. Battles can be a chore to begin with, but with time, Rainbow Moon shines through.
Rainbow Moon is not a good choice for people who are looking for a narrative, but for fans of the old school, punishingly difficult, hardcore JRPGs, this is a nice throwback with an awful lot of raw gameplay behind it. It's not so much a weekend buster as an entire holiday to work through, and as such, for its specific niche, it represents enormous value.
