I enjoyed Oninaki as a whole. The story has some really strong moments and is generally quite fun, but it doesn’t offer a compelling story the whole way through. The combat isn’t strong enough to make up for that, either. Its shorter length for a JRPG might turn off genre fans as well. If you keep your expectations in check, though, there’s an enjoyable game made up of standout ingredients. But I can’t help but wish it went further with its story and put some more effort into the combat and level design. You can file this one under good-but-disappointing.
Oninaki is a likable RPG. Its story and setting are interesting, and the Daemons you collect to help you fight are cool. Unfortunately, bashing through uninteresting swarms of high-HP enemies puts a damper on the fun. Oninaki is still better than Tokyo RPG Factory's previous games; the studio seems to be moving in the right direction. If it can get past its extended growing pains, it'll be a contender someday.
Although the gratifying combat system overpowers the few features that define Kagachi’s journey, what Oninaki promises is a thoughtful, expertly-crafted and gorgeously-animated story that will have you seeing it through to the end and into the Beyond.
