Critic Reviews for Omega Quintet
Omega Quintet is a competent role-playing game that builds on Compile Heart's previous successes. The combat system works well and there's an absolute glut of content for those willing to stray from the beaten path. That said, it's not a particularly stunning game to watch, looking more like a remaster than a title genuinely meant exclusively for PlayStation 4. Then there's the inevitable culture clash that comes from Omega Quintet's story and setting, as well as its emphasis on popstars as opposed to armoured knights and space travellers that just won't have the same appeal outside its original market.
At the end of the day, Omega Quintet is a solid first effort on the PS4 for IF/Compa with a neat premise and an enjoyable combat engine. All that's left to do to move forward is to be rid of this archaic progression structure and before we know it, they could very well become a powerhouse in the JRPG arena.
It's kind of hard to give sum up Omega Quintet. It does some core things right, like the combat and the numerous places to explore, but it does a lot of little things wrong, such as the huge amount of fluff and the useless crafting system. I think a sequel would have a lot of potential, but as it stands Omega Quintet might not be worth your money, unless you want to skip by most of the story and dialogue and just focus on the game's solid combat system.
