Cosmic Star Heroine
Top Critic Average
Cosmic Star Heroine is far more than a simple send-up of some of the genre’s most beloved classics.
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 offers about 20 hours of turn-based combat, exploration of exotic places and space environments that will please any lover of the genre without a doubt. By dispensing with the superfluous and constantly getting to the point, it's a much more direct experience than what we're used to in 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.

Cosmic Star Heroine is a great experience for those nostalgic for old school JRPGs and those who are curious about how it felt for the rest of us back in the day.
This is a homage to the classic sci-fi RPGs of the '90s that successfully takes out many of the annoying bits but boasts a fair amount of the depth and consistency. Cosmic Star Heroine is a JRPG for those who long ago grew bored of JRPGs, but committed fans might find it just a little too slight an offering.
Not every game needs to be 100 hours long and cost $60. Cosmic Star Heroine hits the sweet spot of delivering fun gameplay mechanics with an upbeat and crazy story filled with charming characters and funny writing.
Cosmic Star Heroine is a charming retro-inspired game that sets itself apart with its deep battle system. Don’t go into this game expecting a unique storyline, but instead know that it was made with a lot of love and care by people who are obviously fans of SNES-era RPG’s. Cosmic Star Heroine does a ton of things right and provides many hours of entertainment at a budget price.
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 is an accessible RPG that fits very well with the Switch's lineup. While some issues like bugs and an underwhelming story hold it back from being an RPG classic, the experience is propelled by its innovative and creative combat system and eclectic cast of characters.
