Fate/EXTELLA LINK Review

The Fate series makes its debut on the Switch. Although at first glance it may seem like a Dynasty Warriors clone, Fate/EXTELLA LINK adds to the tried-and-true formula by speeding up the combat, adding more moves, and polishing gameplay.

Dark Devotion Review

Dark Devotion may be a Souls-like, but it’s not just another clone. While nailing both the combat and atmosphere of its inspiration, it also keeps things fresh by adding rogue-lite elements, streamlined character progression, and a forward-only exploration style to the mix that encourage replayability.

Final Fantasy IX Review

While many more years will likely go by before the remake of Final Fantasy VII comes out, a slightly enhanced version of Final Fantasy IX is available now on consoles. Do touched-up character models and combat cheats make a twenty-year-old game new again?

Zanki Zero: Last Beginning Review

Spike Chunsoft’s newest title sees it teaming up with Lost Dimension developer Lancarse for dungeon-crawler Zanki Zero: Last Beginning. Its hypothetical advances in cloning technology certainly come with caveats, not least the end of the world.

SteamWorld Quest Review

Developer Image & Form takes its steampunk robots into the RPG realm with SteamWorld Quest. With memorable characters, an engaging battle system, and beautiful graphics, this Switch title should prove enjoyable to many RPGamers.

Dragon Marked for Death Review

In Inti Creates’ action RPG, the Dragonblood Clan is seeking revenge after many years of violent persecution. But it’s the dearth of others to share the experience with that has marked the game itself for death.

War Theatre Deep Look

War Theatre wants to recruit YOU to serve on the front lines of tactical combat. Unfortunately, its lack of user-friendly design earns it a dishonorable discharge, post-haste.

Etrian Odyssey Nexus Review

The Etrian Odyssey series comes to its 3DS conclusion with the release of Nexus. Blending countless series callbacks with the best dungeon-crawling RPG experience around makes for a pretty fun game.

NieR: Automata Review

It’s been two years since NieR: Automata’s original release but it has come back into a bit of prominence with the release of the Game of the YoRHa Edition bundle. Though the bundle doesn’t add anything itself, it’s a good opportunity to give the game another look.

Mary Skelter: Nightmares Review

Let us enter a wacky world with wayward women from wild and weird fairy tales. These women then have blood squirted onto them for a calming effect. Of all the things that could have happened, that one probably wasn’t the first pick.

God Eater 3 Review

Bandai Namco’s God Eater series returns with a new entry. The Aragami-hunting exploits of Fenrir are over, and it’s time to see if Gleipnir proves as strong.
