Masters of Anima is a lot of fun to play. The combat and puzzles are both challenging and keep you learning as you progress through the story. The characters themselves are incredibly well written and charming with the regional accents adding a lot of charm to the feel of the game. While the controls are a little complicated at first, they feel incredible once you've mastered them, with nothing quite beating summoning a new group of units seconds after unsummoning them to dodge an attack. Despite the game's pacing feeling a little off at times, Masters of Anima takes a solid formula and adds its own twist in order to deliver something that is entirely its own, wonderful, entity.

A somehow limited in scope, yet interesting videogame which would please players who liked Pikmin and Overlord.

The studio Passtech Games has wanted to get into a free slot and little frequented in consoles, the RTS genre. Masters of Anima is played very well with the consoles controlller and it works perfectly in all versions. But this game is missing more ambition, duration, content and opportunities.

There was potential here, but Masters of Anima is ultimately a bit of a letdown.

A unique top-down hack-and-slash RPG that stands out completely from the crowd.

Masters of Anima allows us to control an army of minions to save our princess (and the rest of the world). The most difficult thing about the game is mastering the control system, and there's a notable - and irritating - separation between exploration and fights; nonetheless, the game is a solid and fun experience.

Masters of Anima is a frustrating game. The mechanics seem to work against the player creating more chore and less fun. With some tweaks this game could be a sleeper hit for sure. As it stands though it ends up being more of a hard pass.

A beautiful game with a simple, engrossing theme running throughout it all. You might think you've seen something like Masters of Anima before, but it has more to offer than it would seem at first glance.

Ultimately, this is a game that came out of nowhere to take me on a surprise journey I never imagined I'd want to be on and I loved every second of it.

…there isn't really much story beyond: Fight the bad guys taking over the world, and get the pretty girl back.
