Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time
Top Critic Average
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is a disappointment.
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is heartbreaking. I'm a huge fan of the original anime, and this game does a tremendous job of capturing the heart and personality of that world. Characters look and sound incredible, and getting to explore their school and experience new adventures with them is a blessing. Unfortunately, obtaining that blessing requires a two-mile crawl on your knees through the jagged glass and thorny ivy that is the busted, broken, and simply not fun gameplay of Chamber of Time. Battles are aggravating and exploration is mind-numbing. For as brilliant as the narrative and artistic achievements of Chamber of Time are, it's weighed down by unpolished game design choices that simply make it no fun to actually play at all.
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is a product made for the fans but they'd rather watch again the show than play this.

Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time offers a simple and unique adventure for fans of the anime series, maintaining outstanding audio performance and animation, providing huge content and characters with different combat capabilities, but in contrast the events are slowly going on and the game suffers from frame rate problems from time to time.

I was worried Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time would be a cheap cash grab, but I was wrong. There are some flaws, but the most important aspect — the franchise's ethos — is fully intact and on full display, making this a game that's sure to leave fans spellbound
A good premise that just doesn't match up to it's execution, much like one of Akko's spells.
There's maybe a third of a good game in here, weighed down by a mountain of big and ambitious ideas, none of them given the time and attention they needed to really function.
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time looked interesting after the announcement, but turned out to be mediocre. It is unfortunate that Bandai Namco buried it in the forest of mistakes and shortcomings.

Overall, Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is both a fun experience for fans of the series as well as a good introduction for others. While the gameplay is a bit repetitive, it is still enjoyable, and both the visuals and audio make it a joy to experience.
With its charming characters and engaging story, Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time could have been so much more.
