Virgo Versus the Zodiac
Top Critic Average
Virgo Versus the Zodiac is clearly inspired by other titles like the Mario RPGs and Undertale but its unique humor and stellar writing help it stand apart. This is a fresh RPG that is incredibly fun from start to finish. While not quite at the level of Undertale, this is not a game to miss if you love unique RPGs.
An utterly delightful game.
While Virgo Versus The Zodiac does have its moments, it loses steam the longer you play. The inconsistent tone gets in the way of any serious storytelling, and an initially engaging combat system ends up being underutilised. It's still something worth checking out if you're looking for a shorter RPG with some unique ideas, as long as you can put up with its shortcomings.
It’s not the most coherent story, but there’s a fascinating tale beneath the surface. Players with ambition will be rewarded for multiple playthroughs, although it’ll take plenty of patience and the versatility to see all the different outcomes.
Virgo Versus the Zodiac is an adorably charming rampage across the galaxy. A memorable main heroine worth making that emotional investment in, an impressive transformation of traditional game mechanics into the unique, and an aesthetic style all its own, Virgo Versus the Zodiac delivers an unforgettable experience. A single playthrough will take about 20 hours and provide plenty of reasons to replay well beyond. A hidden gem, this star yet shines dazzlingly bright.
Virgo Versus the Zodiac tells a compelling story with tight, fast-paced combat and presents it in a wonderfully unusual and emotional package.
Despite those issues, though, Virgo Vs The Zodiac is still a solid experience, and a great JRPG that just popped up out of nowhere at the end of the year. If you’re looking for something to play through during the holidays, this is a title definitely worth considering.
It’s an easy recommendation for anyone who either wants to try something a little bit different or just wants a strong RPG experience.
