An incredible adventure from start to finish, CrossCode is a fictional MMO where the charm is anything but. With enthralling combat, intriguing puzzles and hours of enjoyable content, I cannot recommend this game enough.
It’s a crowd-pleaser, a game which welcomes you to have it your own way, focus on the things you enjoy, and leave a play session feeling good. It is a heavenly JRPG – one which has the love and insight to make the necessary changes and improvements to the formula, while keeping the strange idiosyncrasies which make the genre what it is.
Fast paced action & chin stroking puzzles will keep you entertained in this 16-Bit MMO styled adventure.
Radical Fish Games has taken eight years to craft one of the best indie titles of the year. With an interesting story, great combat, exciting and rewarding exploration CrossCode not only pays homage to some of the best retro action-RPGs it also proves that a small studio with love and passion for their project can rival the million-dollar blockbusters we've grown so used to. Trust me, you won't want to miss out on this future classic.
CrossCode shows that the size of a developer and its overall budget doesn't determine the quality of the game. AAA developers can sink all the money in the world into a title, and it may still lack that "special something." That isn't the case here. Radical Fish Games' CrossCode is a masterpiece action RPG by a small-scale studio, and it's damn-near perfect in nearly every way.
Two years ago, I fell in love with CrossCode. Playing this brand new port on the Switch just reminded me of why I loved that game so much back in the day, and to be fair, this might even be the superior version of this already pristine game.
Cross Code, officially, my sleeper, my surprise of 2020.

CrossCode is a wonderfully told, and downright fun to play game. Fans of Secret of Mana and similar RPGs will find themselves right at home. CrossCode is full of charm, and with the accessibility sliders available, there is no excuse for not getting your paws on this game and enjoying everything this polished title has to offer. And did we mention it’s coded completely in HTML5? CrossCool!
A fantastic retro-styled action role-player that honours the past but is in no way beholden to it, with great combat, an intriguing storyline, and a massive game world.
CrossCode is without a doubt one of the best RPG titles we've seen this year, marrying 90s JRPG nostalgia with modern gaming sensibilities to create an exceptional experience. Whether it's the stellar combat, ingenious puzzle design or lush and vibrant world, there's plenty to keep you coming back to CrossCode throughout its lenghty story.
With its high-quality story, gameplay, and delightful protagonist, I want to tell everyone to play CrossCode.
It’s beautiful animations and art style, deep and engaging combat, and meta-commentary on the way we play games combine to make CrossCode a modern classic in its own right, and a fantastic throwback to one of gaming golden ages.
CrossCode is a wonderful throwback to 90s RPGs, meshed with the modern sensibilities, gameplay and story that players expect from today's titles. Old-school Zelda fans will adore it, as will anyone who loves a satisfying blend of action and narrative.
It might have taken a long time to arrival in its full form, but the developers have made the wait worthy.
CrossCode is an outstanding title that is completely worth your time investment. It is beautiful, compelling and a ton of fun.
A cheeky 16-bit RPG game disguised as an MMO that holds your attention throughout the dozens of hours of gameplay and challenging puzzles
I've always been a huge fan of .Hack because it let me play an MMO in my solo single player style, offline, and, on my own time. CrossCode I feel has taken this a good notch higher and between the dialog, the dungeons, the exploration, the customizations, the puzzles and the visuals? It knocks it all out of the park for a hell of an experience that shows that the developers truly used their seven years to create something incredible.
There are a few annoyances, but CrossCode is a fantastically crafted action RPG that is full of charm and crisp gameplay. Fans of The Legend of Zelda and those who just like retro RPGs will find plenty to love. Don't sleep on this special experience.
CrossCode really impressed me. Instead of overly leaning on the retro-inspired graphics, the developers created an exceptionally unique and incredibly fun RPG experience. Thankfully, the console release doesn’t change that, even with a few controller issues.
CrossCode is a well-executed and interesting story, with a charismatic world, captivating characters, an addictive combat system and creative puzzles. The result is a game that was visibly made from the heart. Even with imperfections in performance and other details, the action RPG from Radical Fish Games proves to be a hidden gem that deserves all possible recognition.
