Virgo Versus the Zodiac
Top Critic Average
It’s an easy recommendation for anyone who either wants to try something a little bit different or just wants a strong RPG experience.
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.
Virgo Versus the Zodiac tells a compelling story with tight, fast-paced combat and presents it in a wonderfully unusual and emotional package.
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.
An utterly delightful game.
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.
