Death end re;Quest Reviews
On one hand, the game’s narrative and characters are engaging enough. On the other, the actual RPG elements are hindered by a battle system that, while having some neat ideas, doesn’t really come together.
It’s a bit rough around the edges, especially on the Switch. But Death end re;Quest is easily one of the most creative games in Idea Factory’s stable, and if you missed it before there’s plenty of value in checking it out now.
Although the enjoyable RPG mechanics can be a bit tiresome eventually and the balance between the RPG and visual novel side can feel off Death end re;Quest’s brilliantly written storyline will keep players hooked.
Death end re;Quest spins an interesting tale, but unfortunately is tripped up by its own tedious gameplay mechanics.
