In many ways God Wars is like a new Picross game; it's more of the same. The Japanese folklore narrative offers a slight twist, but the script is painfully dull and repetitive. If you're dipping your toe into the genre or only have time for one of these, we'd sit tight to see what Intelligent Systems has up its sleeve with the upcoming Fire Emblem: Three Houses. If you're a strategy junkie after a fix, it gets the job done with all the mechanics and systems you'd expect – but nothing new or novel.

Ultimately, God Wars: The Complete Legend is both a delightfully classic simulation JRPG experience and a small glimpse on how the genre could evolve without abandoning its turn-based structure.

God Wars: The Complete Legend is a new and richer version of the previous game launched in 2017, however it shows some graphical imperfections and its content does not show any particular improvement even on the technical side. Anyway, this JRPG sounds very familiar to us and it can be enjoyed very well both on TV or in handheld version.
