It's no easy task, but Ever Oasis has managed to make me care as much about preserving my town as I do about saving the world. Despite the few odd design choices, there's a wonderful blend of adventure and town-building where every task you tackle finds multiple ways to reward you.

A charming and often inventive mix of Animal Crossing and Zelda, that lacks depth but not ambition.

Ever Oasis is a unique pastiche of familiar ideas, but no single element rises above the rest. Even so, I was eager to keep upgrading my character and oasis throughout

Ever Oasis' tight blend of mechanics and activities are bound to keep you coming back for more well after completing it, if only to see what else you can do to develop your desert sanctuary. While the game's story isn't particularly moving, the consistent gratification of its incisive design makes it a satisfying adventure. Ever Oasis takes time to grow, but the return is well worth the wait.

Yet with little actual challenge to speak of, Ever Oasis doesn't have much going for it. There aren't any tricky enemies to ward off, and the town-building simulation is shallow. It's the combination of several other genres whose best games are far, far, far more worth playing than this one. In its attempt to crib from the best, Ever Oasis never establishes its own identity.

Ever Oasis is an intriguing blend of genres that serves as an interesting proof of concept, but is far too bland and repetitive to be a classic of the ARPG genre.

Light and breezy, Ever Oasis makes for a pleasant little snack while waiting for the next wave of 3DS RPGs. Some of its core concepts could have been taken further, but it's still a well-executed RPG from a long-standing veteran of the genre.

There are issues with the game, but honestly, I think Ever Oasis is a blast. Building up my little spot of heaven, running errands for the residents, and venturing out into the great sandy plains outside my garden gate provide equal thrills. The longer I play, the more I enjoy it and that is far more uncommon than it should be. If this game is to be the first of a new franchise, it's a damn good starting point.

Ever Oasis is a decent game for a younger audience to get into, but it doesn't do a lot that's completely new. It blends the adventuring with town management nicely and is a well made game, but at the same time there's nothing that really thrilled me while playing it. It's a shame really, as there's nothing necessarily wrong with Ever Oasis, there's just nothing particularly special either.

A charming game with lacks that prevent it from keeping up with the current competition.

Although Ever Oasis is a beutiful and well designed action-rpg it's feels extremely simple and has nothing new for the genre fans.

Unlike the deserts that surround your civilisation, Ever Oasis is far from barren.

Ever Oasis is a perfect blend of management simulator and action-RPG.  Despite being on a handheld, this deep RPG's stylish presentation and many gameplay systems come together in a way that few games do.

Ever Oasis offers a surprising amount of content in a fun, accessible game. Challenging yet forgiving battle mechanics mean that beginners can hack and slash away, while masters can focus on strategy and speed running. A diverse cast of characters with numerous abilities encourages playing with diverse parties, and the warp system enables lots exploration, creating replayability while making long slogs across maps a thing of the past. Easy to pick up, hard to put down, and overflowing with features, Ever Oasis really is a diamond in the desert.

As a new game from the developers of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, Ever Oasis delivers an enjoyable, yet flawed, title for Nintendo 3DS players to get lost in.

I like Ever Oasis a lot, and while it doesn't reach the level of "future classic" like Persona 4 or Okami, it fits the bill perfectly as a closer for the Nintendo 3DS and its impressive run. If Nintendo drops a few more hits like this in our laps over the next year, I'll be happy to keep my 3DS in rotation.

You can spend your time in Ever Oasis if you do not mind a simple combat system, an emphasis on management of resources and at the end of the game - grind. Interesting puzzles in the dungeons, nice characters and symbolism enrich the overall concept, but in the second half of game I often catched myself thinking that what is happening on the screen gradually begins to make me bored, even despite the powerful atmosphere and visual performance.

Ever Oasis features a charming aesthetic that begins with the character designs and continues through to the Oasis and even the dungeons.
