Adheres to the tradition of Final Fantasy Tactics admirably, but repetitive encounters and lack of an interesting story drag the experience down
Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark is easily one of the best tactical games I've played in recent memory. The fact that it was made by just two people is mind blowing. If you are a fan of Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, or games like Banner Saga, Fell Seal will scratch that itch. Just know going in that it might be a little bit before we get our next content fix.
6 Eyes Studio under the supervision of 1C managed to create a project that will please the fans of tactical role-playing games. The developers carefully adapted the classic mechanics and added an interesting plot. Uneven graphics slightly spoils the experience, but interesting gameplay is able to captivate fans of the genre for a long time.

With a great, intriguing story aimed at adults (but not inappropriate for kids) and a fantastic stable of characters and jobs, Fell Seal is the sort of game that lets you dive in and play around with its systems in any way you like. Clearly crafted with love for the genre, and with almost intimidating longevity, Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark is the heir apparent to the tactics-RPG throne.
Would I recommend Fell Seal: Arbiters Mark? Yes, I would. It has remarkable polish, gorgeous art and was simply a blast to play. I went in with low expectations but walked away grinning from ear to ear. If you are looking for a turn-based tactics game set within a stunning fantasy setting, Fell Seal: Arbiters Mark should be right up your alley.
One of the staples of an awesome game is the fact that it leaves you jonesing for more. Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark accomplishes this with a style and grace of a bygone era of game design. Here's to hoping there is more content on the way, because I can't wait for my next dose of tactical action.
This love letter to the Final Fantasy Tactics series mimics its inspirations very closely, but manages to be a solid SPRG in its own right.
A top-notch strategy RPG that should definitely appeal to genre fans who've enjoyed games like Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire Emblem, or Summon Night.
Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark is an easy recommendation for anyone who loves playing Japanese tactical role-playing games.

Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark is a terrific option for fans of the tactical RPG genre who are looking for a title with a more retro feel. It provides that feeling of nostalgia while still making its own unique mark. Wonderfully written dialogue and a plethora of customization options will provide hours of entertainment for those who get sucked into its world.
The Group of Arbiters is cogent in turn-based battles. But There is a decent linear story and some little flaws.

Of course, Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark is not a perfect game, but there aren't too many things that I would change. Its biggest flaw is the generic story, but there are some balancing issues as well. Also, some game system are thoroughly explained, so I strongly recommend reading the help page or the PDF manual that comes with the game.
Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark is, surprisingly, one of the best Tactical RPGs released in this decade. Clearly developed and projected with a lot of care and speaking directly to long time fans of the genre and its classics, the touching story, very well-developed characters and fine-tuned gameplay make it a fantastic game and an easy recommendation.

Fell Seal came out of nowhere. That's my fault because I don't really follow Kickstarter these days, and that's where this one got its start. But I'm so glad that I had the chance to play it.
