Overall, the old school JRPG vibe in Revenant Dogma is great and I love the auto-win feature. However, with such a short story and the feeling that there’s not a whole lot of meat on the bones, I felt a bit disappointed that the adventure was over when it actually felt like it barely began. There was also no satisfaction of having side stories which would have enabled me to bond with random characters – they were all rather generic and without depth.
My barrier to entry with any traditional JRPG is low, and I am not ashamed of it. I have played some amazing games over the years that have entertained me that might have not for your average RPG fan. Because of that, I’ve come to appreciate several of the KEMCO RPGs because they scratch that nostalgic itch for me, despite having issues here and there. But I just can’t give Revenant Dogma a pass. It is a mess in the truest sense, and is built in a way that might feel like a cash grab to you even after paying the $12.99USD entry fee. While I’m not writing off future KEMCO RPGs as a whole just yet, I sincerely hope that the next title is catered more towards the console audience, at the very least.
