I really wanted to like this game. The art direction is terrific, with even the basic enemies given the same level of attention and care as the protagonist and her crew. The writing shines in spots, as well. Those little interactions between Cecille and the Grimoire were oases of interest in an ocean of narrative oatmeal. And those weird snap decisions you were forced to make mid-battle? I feel like the team was really on to something with those.
Fallen Legion is a title that showed promise, with great 2D sprite work and a combat engine that is reminiscent of Tri Ace’s classic, Valkyrie Profile. However, due to a myriad of factors, it falls short of fully realizing its aspirations due to its humdrum story and chaotic, oftentimes dull combat.
Fallen Legion: Sins of an Empire shows more ambition than it probably had any financial right to show, and it pays off in some really surprising ways. If you want to try something unique in the RPG space, this is certainly reaching for something beyond its grasp but comes out great anyway.
