The Evoland Legendary Edition is an innovative and creative new old-school RPG. If you’ve grown up with multiple systems ranging from the 8-bit consoles to the 32-bit generation, then you’ll simply love all of the nostalgic references and nods which you’ll immediately pick up on and smile at, every single time. For the price, you’re getting two rather unique and enjoyable games. One is short but contains some great ideas and concepts, the other is much longer with a more solid story and vision. The Evoland Legendary Edition collection is a modern take on old-school visuals and mechanics which have been implemented perfectly to create a artificial nostalgic experience around a modern game.

Bringing the two Evoland games to the Nintendo Switch is an opportunity for both experienced and newly-arrived players to enjoy this sum of RPG elements in an edition that might have some execution issues and a less motivating plot but which nevertheless provides an enjoyable time for all.

Evoland: Legendary Collection is perfect for RPG fans, especially those who love and followed the evolution of the genre. There are countless references to discover and two games that spout love for the genre, something that becomes contagious as we move forward and understand the level of care in each game.

Taken as a whole, Evoland: Legendary Edition should probably be viewed as just including Evoland 2, since that game is, for the most part, totally alright. I'd look at the first game as a nonessential bonus. It's a solid gag, but that's about it. The second game also veers into that humorous minefield, but at least it can precariously hang with decent action-RPG elements and amusing writing.

Some of the tongue in cheek videogame gags are fun and brighten the darker parts of the game, there is fun to be had here but there are just much better options out there to spend your time on.
