Cris Tales doesn’t quite deliver on its clever premise or its chrono-combat. There’s no denying the passion and talent of the developers, however, manifested in stunning visuals and a wonderful cast. Cris Tales will definitely ostracize some players, but those with a little patience may see past its flaws to embrace its heartfelt homage to gaming’s bygone era.
Cris Tales‘ number one selling point is its use of time manipulation as both a plot device and battle mechanic. It’s what makes the entire experience. It’s a solid mid-range game, great for teens and adults looking for a fairly breezy thirty-ish hour adventure. However, there are better games out there that you should experience first, especially if you have to be more selective with your cash.
Despite his good ideas, Cris Tales carries some classic defects of the genre, which, if they had been approached differently, might have contributed to culminating an even fresher, more accessible, and entertaining game. Having to fight hard enough enemies for half an hour to level up, constant grinding, and sometimes unfair encounters don’t help at all, especially in the early stages of the game.
