I Am Setsuna manages to cash in on the nostalgia ticket rather well. In no way does it feel like a cheap attempt to suck us in based on something we already know and love. Rather it shows respect to its inspiration while trying to add in a little bit of something new. It doesn’t work out 100% as at times it feels overly grindy and the story is indeed a bit cliched but an enjoyable combat and progression system overshadows those downsides.
Overall, the cumulative effect of the game’s themes is still a very powerful one, and I enjoyed most of my time with it, but I can’t help but feel a little let down by the flaws that kept it from reaching its full potential.
I appreciate where the thought for this game comes from. The world of JRPGs has moved on so much since that genre defining era. We often look back with rose tinted glasses and say “They just don’t make them like that anymore”, and there is definitely worth in looking backwards, but moving forwards. Maybe they were just of their time, and what makes them truly great are the memories we have of them.
