Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time
Top Critic Average
This field trip to Luna Nova is more frustrating than fun, though fans of Little Witch Academia will likely find more enjoyment than others.
It becomes readily apparent that those who will enjoy Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time the most will be existing fans of the series. The storyline and new animations are worth checking out, especially since the second season is still a ways out. Even then, they may be hard-pressed to deal with both the tedious exploration and the unreliable combat. For them, the game may be worth getting for cheap. For everyone else, this should be a pass.
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.

Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time wasted the potential with low difficulty level and frustrating loading times. In effect, it is directed only to fans of the animated series.

Despite the beauty of graphics and sounds alongside the thriller, the game may sometimes become boring with similar phases. Some monsters and surrounding environments are vary, but not entirely, and the side-scrolling method becomes traditional after the first stage. The majority of innovation and thinking outside the box is at the stage of exploring the school and searching for keys and puzzles

Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is a tale of two games. The storytelling is excellent and top notch, featuring the exact kind of humor and charm that fans of the series adore. The gameplay, however, lacks polish and can feel cumbersome, which is a bummer. While it won’t be for everyone, fans of the series who are willing to go through less than perfect gameplay likely will still enjoy it for its original story, which definitely does justice to the source material.
Even hardcore fans of the series will struggle with this, and it's a shame because it looks so bloody good.
This could have been a good game with better choices, but instead it’s difficult to recommend to even the most rabid Little Witch Academia fan, much less the broader RPG-playing public.
Fans of Little Witch Academia will find something to do here in Chamber of Time. There's an original story from TRIGGER that is genuinely enjoyable and the interactions between the likeable cast are all great. It's just a shame that every element of gameplay is so massively flawed in so many ways. The groundhog day style repeating story was so promising and yet it has been produced in such a terrible fashion. There are plenty of good elements to the dungeon crawling, yet the levels themselves are dull and frustrating. A big disappointment.
Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time is average at best, but it might hold some value for the fans of the franchise.
