The Thaumaturge boxart

The Thaumaturge Review

Developer Fool's Theory has crafted a solid RPG set in 1905 Warsaw that, at times, can feel like as much of an awesome documentary as it is a video game.

Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island boxart

Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island Review

Shiren's latest adventure proves that game sequels can benefit just as much from what they remove as well as what they add.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth boxart

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Review

A massive game that synthesizes two distinct eras of blockbuster game design, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth feels fresh and familiar simultaneously, while forging a new path for Cloud and the crew.

Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story boxart

Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story Review

Bandle Tale: A League of Legends Story is something most would now term a “cozy game”, being a light simulation game that’s largely relaxing and not too stressful. Its gameplay and story can feel pretty mediocre, reminding me of childhood favorites but never as entertaining.

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden boxart

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden Review

Banishers: Ghost of New Eden's excellent characters and storytelling are diminished by its mundane world structure and repetitive combat.

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince boxart

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince Review

The Dragon Quest Monsters series makes a great return on Nintendo Switch, but in regards to its story it does very little to properly honor the legacy of the game it takes inspiration from.

Persona 3 Reload boxart

Persona 3 Reload Review

Persona 3 Reload is a fantastic remake of the game that set the course that the Persona franchise still follows today.

Eastward boxart

Eastward Octopia Review

Eastward Octopia is a fun little distraction, that doesn't stray too far from the usual farming sim formula. Changes to certain important side jobs like fishing and mining help to elevate it, but the lack of constant progress mid-way really drags the experience down.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink boxart

Granblue Fantasy: Relink Review

Offering a stacked roster of playable characters, intuitive multiplayer action combat, and a bombastic single-player story quest, Granblue Fantasy: Relink is a resounding success.

Enshrouded boxart

Enshrouded Early Access Review

An expansive world, well-written lore, and decent base-building provide an enjoyable survival game alternative.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy boxart

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy Review

The three games of the Apollo Justice "trilogy" are well worth the read, even if they aren't an ideal starting point for the series.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth boxart

Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth Review

With a fantastic premise that earns its dual protagonist direction in Ichiban & Kiryu, major combat system refinements, plethora of engaging side activities in its new beautiful Hawaii locale, and developments that enrich the Yakuza-era legacy, Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth is one of the best games RGG Studio has ever made.

World of Demons boxart

World of Demons Review

Platinum Games' Apple Arcade exclusive Action RPG might be gone, but it should not be forgotten.

Another Code: Recollection boxart

Another Code: Recollection Review

Nintendo and Arc System Works remake of the Nintendo DS and Wii cult classics successfully recreates Another Code for a new generation.

Wandering Sword boxart

Wandering Sword Review

While Wandering Sword may appear to be an imitation at first glance, this entertaining Wuxia-style adventure is one of the most unique RPGs I've ever played, despite stumbles in localization and polish.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 boxart

Xenoblade Chronicles 3: Future Redeemed Review

Monolith Soft's standalone prologue to Xenoblade Chronicles 3 offers a satisfying conclusion to the company's last decade of RPGs.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet boxart

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Review

Gamefreak's latest DLC improves the game in some ways, while not in the ways that would matter the most.

Lunacid boxart

Lunacid Review

Lunacid succeeds at making the Great Well a world worth exploring, with secrets abound and more.

Small Saga boxart

Small Saga Review

I really enjoyed my short but sweet time with Small Saga, of about seven hours, with my only disappointment being the lack of any difficulty without having to intentionally handicap myself. It’s a great little game filled with nice visuals, and mostly funny writing.

Silent Hope boxart

Silent Hope Review

Silent Hope is a charming, short action RPG that will scratch the itch of those looking for a low stakes, loot-based hack-n-slash.

In Stars and Time boxart

In Stars and Time Review

In Stars and Time is a thought-provoking RPG about life and family. What if you could spend the rest of eternity with your friends? What if you could spend the rest of eternity with your friends? What if you could spend the rest of eternity —

Super Mario RPG boxart

Super Mario RPG Review

This brand new remake of the 1996 classic recaptures a lot of what made the original game great while infusing it with modern updates that will be great for new players but may turn off fans of the original.

Persona 5 Tactica boxart

Persona 5 Tactica Review

Persona 5 Tactica delivers a solid tactical RPG, that lands just shy of greatness

Tales of Arise boxart

Tales of Arise - Beyond The Dawn Review

Tales of Arise - Beyond The Dawn is conceptually an interesting epilogue, but stale questing and trite plotting leave me apathetic to this unexpected expansion.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name boxart

Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name Review

Although a solid entry, this title serves as an intermediary of Kiryu's actions between Yakuza 6 and Yakuza: Like A Dragon so its endpoint is inherently predictable and as enjoyable as it is, the narrative is relatively thin in exchange for a wealth of side content to pad it out.
