For any fans of those old RPGs, this should be a fun throwback for you. For kids, it’ll be a fun introduction to the genre. For everybody else… what the hell, it’s still a fun way to waste some time.

Inazuma Eleven is an accessible RPG that does a nice job of explaining its nuances and tactics early on. It offers a unique blend of addictive collectivity and anime-style soccer action that culminates in an enjoyable and decently long experience. This is a solid debut for the franchise in North America and, at $19.99, an easy recommendation for RPG and soccer fans alike.

Football fan or not, if you're looking for a charming portable adventure packed with memorable characters and creative gameplay, Inazuma Eleven will bicycle kick its way right into your heart.

Inazuma Eleven is a quirky and novel RPG, but the on-field action is too unrefined to be rewarding. As your team improves and your opponents get more formidable, a match becomes a parade of implausible magical techniques – which would be more entertaining if coordinating the gameplay basics like moving and passing were less frustrating.

There’s a lot to love for both sports and RPG fans in Inazuma Eleven. The game is beyond deep -- thanks to 1,000 characters that can be molded into soccer gods – has a charming story, and some highly rewarding strategic gameplay. Inazuma Eleven is one of the best role-playing experiences I've had in a long time, and more importantly, rekindled a youthful feeling I've grown to miss.

If you want a serious soccer game, or if you favor monster-slaying to sportsmanship, Inzuma Eleven won't do much for you. If you're open to the idea combining the genres into an experience that's solid and a bit silly, Inazuma Eleven will make you laugh and cheer. Ole ole ole.
