A great adventure with a deep story that features an excellent combat system. However, it has some technical issues on Nintendo Switch, making it a little bit unstable for this console.

Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory is an action-RPG with a snappy, timing-based combat system and well-written dialogue. However, it's a little messy and repetitive in both gameplay and narrative terms, and the game could do a lot more to explain itself.

Fallen Legion has some innovative ideas that shake up the action RPG formula a bit, but the lackluster execution fails to capitalize on its promise.

Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory isn’t perfect, especially in terms of story, though it’s a fair amount of fun.

The unique action and dark story of Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory never quite come together in a way that justifies the game's $40.00 asking price. You can overcome the initial frustration with the inadequately explained combat controls, but getting past the game's repetitive nature will be a much tougher task.

Thanks to the extra content for both games, Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory is the best way to play the definitive version of Fallen Legion: Sins of an Empire and Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion. Being able to play the game at home or on the go is fun, and the game looks great on TV and on the Nintendo Switch's screen. There's a lot of content to enjoy in this collection, making it's $39.99 price a steal.

Regardless, I'm glad I played it on Switch rather than another system as the bite-sized missions lend themselves well to portability, but there's little reason to go back after completing both routes.

It can gate progress, and occurrences are is so predictable that this should have been fixed. Fallen Legion is a fun, but flawed. If you have the patience to learn these systems on your own, and a willingness to put up with moments of “play by instinct alone,” this game is worth picking up.

Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory is the type of game that requires playing first before purchasing. It looks great, with some gorgeous hand-drawn art, and some cool looking combat. That combat system looks like a fresh take on the classic Valkyrie Profile, but once getting hands-on, it's quickly evident it doesn't live up to its promises. The premise is solid on both the action and the gameplay, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. The story is horrendous, hugely convoluted, lacking any sort of pivotal moments, or interesting characters. The combat system is too manic and messy to master, leaving it as a real disappointment, overall.
