Cosmic Star Heroine pays homage to legendary 16-bit jRPGs. It's exceptionally funny, engaging and endearing game, but Alyssa L'Salle's adventure ends too fast and leave the player wanting a lot more.

Cosmic Star Heroine does for the 16-bit JRPG what Shovel Knight did for 8-bit platformers. It takes everything that worked about them to remind you of why those games are classics, but builds upon that foundation with a modern-day sensibility by eliminating filler.

Cosmic Star Heroine feels like a short, classic JRPG that has been ported from an ancient system, warts and all. Some of the glitches and usability issues are criminal, and should never be acceptable.

Cosmic Star Heroine is one of the better RPGs around. It may tread familiar ground, but it does so on its own terms, making for a game well worth experiencing even if you aren't a fan of the genre.

Cosmic Star Heroine achieved what it set out to do: a great RPG gameplay experience. the game design is smart and modern despite the game being 16 bit-like, and the battles are based on strategy and customization. the weak point is the storytelling which simplified everything the characters had to face and kept moving very fast.

It's not difficult to find new games that are designed with the 16-bit era in mind, but it is rare to find ones that develop new and enjoyable game mechanics. While the writing could have benefited from some additional depth, the expansive party and combat options provide hours of entertainment, making Cosmic Star Heroine a worthwhile addition to your Switch library.

I really loved playing Cosmic Star Heroine on PlayStation Vita and everything it brings to the table. It made me go back down memory lane, remembering games I enjoyed way back in the day while taking on this new adventure. The game has a great battle system that manages to make every battle feel fresh. If you're looking for a JRPG to play at home or on the go, then I highly recommend that you buy Cosmic Star Heroine today!

Cosmic Star Heroine is a nostalgic experience that is worth playing if you are a fan of the 16-bit JRPG era. The cast is full of wonderful characters, the plot interesting and the battle system engaging. The whole game is wrapped up in a ten-twelve hour experience which was the perfect length to see the story out.

Cosmic Star Heroine overpromised, underdelivered, and yet it still managed to be an interesting game with an unique humor for fans of the genre attracted to the aesthetics of older generations.

Cosmic Star Heroine's excellent combat system and well-executed retro stylings make it a must for those who hold the classic JRPGs of the past close to their hearts.
