Operation Babel is a good dungeon crawler but not even close to Experience Inc's best work or most of the competition on Vita.

In line with its predecessor, Operation Babel : New Tokyo Legacy offers a pretty complete RPG with an underlying poorly handled difficulty. The mix of blood, craft and loot are many mechanics that will be off-putting to the less experimented players. Only for players familiar with the genre craving for Dungeon RPGs.

Overall Operation Babel is a frustrating experience. The game mechanics aren't explained particularly well, and so you'll need a lot of patience to figure out how everything works. If you're a newcomer to the genre then you're better off playing something like Ray Gigant. While Babel has some interesting mechanics, it definitely lacks a lot of the polish of similar titles like Stranger of Sword City. Simply put, there are a lot of quality dungeon crawlers out there on Vita that do a much better job than Operation Babel.

Operation Babel feels too similar to its predecessor with a weaker cameo-focused story & reused assets but exceeds it in every other aspect of gameplay. The new subclass system provides extra control on party depth.
