Trying out a hidden classicClassic anime style strategy game redone with modern effects and visuals is the best way i can describe this game.
Never even heard of the series before but I'm huge fan of games like fire emblem so came across this and decided to give it a shot.
First and foremost, the game looks amazing. The art style has been completely updated with vibrant colors and textures, as well as a clean user interface. A fun touch is your can switch between the original art and sound track. Not a AAA title level of graphics, but for the switch, a solid improvement and gorgeous eye candy.
Unfortunately the game stumbles in a few areas. These most glaring issue is the dubbing. Yes the game features full voice acting with regular banter amongst characters. However, the translation is in English thank god but the spoken dialogue is ENTIRELY in Japanese. It's not too much of a hindrance during actual gameplay but it's immersion breaking.
Next issue is the tutorial, or rather a lack of one. I didn't have any real trouble picking the game up and playing, but the game makes zero effort to explain anything. Yes i know the cursor moves and the A button is select, but everytime i try to navigate a menu or understand what things do, or even figure or what the numbers in the combat screen relate to, I'm left entirely in the dark. There's no screen to read what any of this means let alone what the core mechanics are. This is baffling for a strategy rpg, the strategy and critical thinking should be how to overcame the level challenge, not figuring out how to save the game!
Back to some positive, the sound track is very upbeat and motivational. While on a loop, in game music is very catchy with a lot of variety and feels very appropriate for the genre. Subtle changes such has boss fights and new discoveries as well as plot changes that occur add variety. Effects are simple yet effective; the clanging of swords and spears, the galloping of horses, the characters yelling battle cries or flinching from attacks all add flavor the the gameplay. Quality of sound is pretty good, haven't encountered any distortions or cuts of any sort and is presented in a clean manner.
Overall, i am enjoying the game and appreciate the level of challenge. Yes the Japanese voice over can get irritating, and yes in still learning what everything does. But these are only temporary flaws, it is an update to a classic after all.
Solid graphics and sound
Gorgeous art style
Intricate and intense gameplay with lots of variety
Entire Japanese voice cast can be distracting
Unreasonable lack of explaining anything
