Shadows of Adam surprised me. JRPGs are a crowded genre and, admittedly, often adhere to a limited design model. It’s especially remarkable then, that a game that knowingly takes from its predecessors could stand out so much. Although that is, perhaps, why it succeeds: it takes the very best aspects of the genre, cuts out most of the tedium and delivers an exciting, stirring and compelling trip through memory lane.
RPGs have evolved a lot over the decades. The genre has left behind some exhausting ideas as well as some timeless ones. Shadows of Adam does an admirable job of choosing what to excavate from games of yore. The result is a beautiful trip to yesterday, one that doesn’t waste time getting there. Shadows of Adam is a delightful retro experience.
The game is a fantastic love letter to the genre and offers gamers a trip down memory lane. What will surprise you, though, is how it’s so much more than a cash-grab throwback to a bygone era, improving and surpassing the greats with a number of fresh mechanics. JRPG fans would be amiss not to check this one out.
