If you are looking for a tactical RPG with comical themes, an unlikely protagonist, and plenty of heart, Regalia is worth its weight in gold.
The fighting can occasionally feel unfair and the plot is average, but the engaging combat as well as the humorous tone of the narrative combine together to create a solid and entertaining JRPG experience.
Ultimately, the game offers all the fun and fantastic storytelling of a great RPG
If you've been crying out for a good console strategy RPG you should give Regalia a go, it's not perfect, but it's an exceptionally well told yarn.
Tactical RPG players and story driven RPG players will have a great time with Regalia, and even with its faults, I still recommend it to anyone that enjoys a complex RPG.
When it comes to turn-based strategy games, Regalia: Royal Edition is worthy of attention due to its unique and multifaceted mechanics.
Regalia has some interesting things going for it. I was blown away by the gorgeous character designs and illustrated portraits and the tactical combat also impressed me with unique systems that made it a bit more than just a cookie cutter tactical RPG. Unfortunately, for as much as I loved those aspects, hamfisted humor and clunky menu navigation on console dampened what could have otherwise been a magical experience. It's hard to get past those issues, but if you're able to, there some truly special stuff here in Regalia.
Regalia doesn't reinvent the wheel and it probably won't come close to blowing you away, but it's a pleasantly entertaining RPG that just about anyone can enjoy.
Though it takes a little while to get going, and you may feel quite overwhelmed at the start of the game, Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs - Royal Edition is well worth sticking with.
