I want to go back and treat Akiba’s Beat like the visual novel it truly is, instead of expecting a full-scale action RPG. That’s the key, there. If you want a story that’s lighthearted while touching on the toxic nature of delusions and the dangers of succumbing to them, Akiba’s Beat will serve you very well. If you want a badass, nail-biting JRPG with all the depth and minutiae this entails, you may want to look elsewhere. This game knows what it brings to the table, and it’s only fair that you do too.

While I can most definitively say that Akiba’s Beat is a marked improvement over its predecessor, I can’t help but feel that in its aspiration to become like the much beloved Persona and Tales series, it has lost an identity of its own. Despite its improvements, with the stellar lineup of games all bidding for your time this year, it’s hard to recommend Akiba’s Beat over its superior alternatives.

Alas though, long dialogue, a bland battle system and very little to do in between really does let Akiba’s Beat down. If you’re a hardcore veteran of the JRPG genre, you may get some fun out of this in small doses, but anyone casual will be switched off by the third chapter.
