The reason I bring this up is that the same thing seems to happen every so often with modern developers, leading to surprising, quality games that are instantly familiar and yet totally unique. That’s Battle Chasers: Nightwar in a nutshell.

Battle Chasers is a great game and great RPG. I love the rich characters and their background. The art style makes this whole experience beautiful. The story, while I have not completed it yet, has captured me and I can’t wait to see where it goes. I think anyone that enjoys RPG’s will enjoy this game.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a throwback to classic JRPGs, but in many ways an improvement. It’s like Aliens compared to Alien; all the aspects that made the original great have been polished up, tweaked and turned up to 11 to deliver something that is arguably even better than the inspiration.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar cast, amazing soundtrack and art direction more than makes up for its dull and often grindy combat mechanics.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar hits a few bumps along the road, but overall, Airship Syndicate’s debut title is a resounding success, thanks to its excellent combat system and gorgeous art style.

This game is a pleasure to play and experience thanks to its many homages to classic games from the old school JRPG era. It's a no brainer must-play for fans of the genre.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar would've had potential to be surprise hit but fights with some of the worst technical problems this year and doesn't deliver a very gripping story. If you can live with constant crashes and broken cutscenes you'll still get a solid turn-based jrpg with a nice Darksiders feel.
