God Wars: Future Past is overall an entertaining SRPG that doesn't stray too far away from its roots.

God Wars: Future Past offers a decent strategy RPG that keeps things straightforward by throwing away complex mechanics in favour of a well-built job system that calls back to the classic strategy RPGs, like Final Fantasy Tactics.

God Wars: Future Past is a very traditional TRPG, and as such, it is built upon a solid foundation, and fans of the genre are going to like it. It does, however, do very little to stand out. It could also be helped a bit by balancing the jobs more. Some jobs just feel extremely underwhelming compared to others. The story and the gameplay in general are going to deliver what fans expect and desire, though: nothing less, and sadly, nothing more.

God Wars Future Past is a deep, compelling and difficult SRPG in the veins of the great classics of the genre (Tactics Ogre and Final Fantasy Tactics in primis), with little to no new features and an average presentation. Should be more than enough to satisfy hardcore SRPG fans.

GOD WARS: Future Past is a good strategy RPG that has unique inspirations and ambients, with interesting characters from the Japanese folklore that work really well with its great combat mechanics. It's a fun and different experience that, despite some flaws, succeeds in its objective.

God Wars: Future Past is an incredible game with deep and complex customization options. The hand-drawn retro style graphics ar every well polished and colorful, and the music perfectly fits the game's theme. The story is very addictive, so once you start playing it will be a hard game to put down. A little more freedom to explore would have been awesome, but it's not a dealbreaker. God Wars Future Past is a great tactical RPG and a must-have on PS4.

All in all, God Wars: Future Past is definitely a game that should be played for its story, due to the lack of any other great feature or unique aspect. Luckily, if you´re a fan of traditional folklore like me, you will surely have a good time, despite its uninspired bland gameplay and graphics.

God Wars: Future Past is an SRPG which feels less future-facing and more like it's stuck in the past. It does nothing to try and redefine the genre, but it does have a number of well executed mechanics including a compelling job system. SRPG fans should find just enough to like, and newcomers may also stumble across some tactical fun.

God Wars: Future Past is an excellent turn based RPG for fans of the genre. Players will certainly enjoy the story telling through cutscenes and lively cast characters met along the way. And even though battles can become challenging at times, coming back with a new strategy in mind almost always leads to victory. PS Vita owners would definitely get the most out of this game with its handheld version.
