CrossCode combines elements of some of our favorite 16-bit action experiences with in depth role playing customization. An intriguing story with a unique setting and hours of gameplay help round out a package that is more than welcome on home consoles. Despite some monotonous grinding and areas that can be a bit overburdened with lore, CrossCode should not be missed by those who haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing it before.
Like Owlboy and Iconoclasts before it, CrossCode is the latest in a long line of longer-gestating labors of love that emerge with varying degrees of cohesion. The best thing that can be said about CrossCode is it doesn't feel at all dated or clunky on the other end of a prolonged development time. The biggest knock against it is that CrossCode can and often does wind up feeling both bloated and inspired simultaneously.
Overall, I enjoyed Crosscode much more than I thought I would. Despite the generic and cliched start of the game, it is full of great writing and a lot of heart. Couple that with solid gameplay, beautiful graphics and a solid soundtrack and you have an indie-RPG that is easy to recommend to fans of the genre. If you're a fan of action-RPG's and fondly remember the 16-bit era, you owe it to yourself to check CrossCode out!
