Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy - Steam Edition
Developers: MAGES. Inc., Experience Inc., 5pb
Publisher: NIS America
Multiple reports of kidnapping have shaken Tokyo to its core. Regrettably, these reports are not baseless rumors...
The victims are mainly young people and their numbers have been steadily rising. Variants and members of a mysterious group have been sighted at the scene of the kidnappings. Students from Hinowa Academy—the very school attended by members of the Xth Squad—are in danger.
In pursuit of the truth, closely held secrets will be exposed...
But this is far from the only incident plaguing the city.
There are reports of strange incidents known as Sprawl Terrors, in which buildings and people suddenly vanish into thin air. A powerful enemy with mysterious origins opposes your efforts to investigate this phenomena. Furthermore, there appear to be some familiar faces among your enemies.
As the situation grows more desperate, loyalties will be questioned!
What's here isn't bad at all; it's by no means best in class, but it does deliver on its premise. There is satisfaction to be gleaned from the battles if you buy into the strategy and tactics; there's a lot to take in here (well upwards of 30 hours); and it's dressed up in sumptuous art. If you're a sucker for a dungeon-crawler or for JRPGs, then this will sate your thirst two times over. There isn't much here to recommend to the uninitiated though.
