Children of Zodiarcs mixes a collection of disparate mechanics in just the right way. Coupled with an endearing story, fans of the SRPG genre will no doubt love playing the game’s skirmishes long after they are finished with the story mode.
As a story, Children of Zodiarcs is a little lacking, but if you don’t mind some grinding the mix of combat, card and dice system is a delight. Although some characters are less useful than others, the fights are enough to pull you through if a tactical RPG is what you are looking for.
Had there been more variety to scenarios, perhaps a few changes in how you interact with the world over time, a further delving into the world itself, more exploration options, or maybe a bit more characterisation either in-battle or between, Children of Zodiarcs might have pulled farther ahead of its own failings, but as such the game's own attempts at grandeur are undercut by its stumbles in pacing, samey early encounters, sometimes finicky battle mechanics, and solemn linearity.
