Masters of Anima Review

Masters of Anima brings a ton of creativity to the table. Take the role of Otto, a reluctant would-be Shaper, to save your fiancée Ana, and coincidentally the world, by summoning a never-ending army of guardians in this fresh take on RPG and RTS gameplay.


Tales of Aravorn: Cursed Lands Review

Indie developer Winter Wolves has released its latest fantasy visual novel-RPG hybrid. Cursed Lands returns to the setting of Aravorn, though goes back a few years before the events of Loren the Amazon Princess, and RPGamer journeyed back with it.

Lost Sphear Review

Though Tokyo RPG Factory’s first offering was a competent game in its own right, it didn’t quite hit all of its notes. Does the studio’s sophomore effort do a better job on delivering a quality throwback experience?


Secret of Mana Remake Review

What happens when a widely-cherished Super Nintendo RPG gets a remake that doesn’t change much? The result will doubtless be different for everyone, but here’s a review abundantly demonstrating one reaction.
