Utawarerumono Zan is obviously a limited game, but as the first attempt to expand the Utawarerumono property beyond its roots, it's a good first step.

If you're a fan of Utawarerumono and like the idea of a Dynasty Warriors spin-off then you're sure to love what ZAN has to offer.

A basic adventure that relies more on the feelings from the source to sell it. For some this will be enough, just don’t expect the most fulfilling story if you have no experience with the franchise.

Developer Tamsoft have done a decent job adapting Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception into a 3D Brawler, but one can't help but wonder if it was worth it on its own.

Utawarerumono: ZAN is a condensed version of must-read visual novel SRPG that doesn’t quite stick with you as much as the original. Sure, you’ll get the gist of the characters and the situation at hand, but nothing really stands out in the game storywise.

Utawarerumono is a property that deserves greater awareness, but unfortunately Utawarerumono Zan is unlikely to help. It might serve some as a brief reminder of events, but taken in a vacuum neither the storytelling nor gameplay do enough to warrant much attention.

Utawarerumono: Zan is a perfect combination on paper, but its execution is so flawed that it should quickly fade away in one of the busiest months of the year in gaming.

I really don’t know who this game is for, aside from already devoted fans of the franchise. I’m sure there are plenty of Utawarerumono fans out there, but this game didn’t seem to make any attempt at pulling in new ones.
