There's nothing wrong with it, but by trying to be everything to everybody, Lost Sphear becomes sort of a pastiche of other RPGs rather than something which will be remembered for its own merits. I've certainly enjoyed my time with the game, and I think it's worth playing. But I know deep down that in a few years I'm far more likely to replay Chrono Trigger for a twentieth time than I am to come back to Lost Sphear.
Sometimes, the best way to learn things is by doing. Lost Sphear drives that home with each new aspect to battle that it throws the player’s way. A couple of tutorial screens are shown when a new tactic is unlocked, but it is ultimately up to the player to experiment with and learn the nuances of managing resources, balancing a team, and preparing before battle.
Lost Sphear a very enjoyable and well made game, but then again, there are so many classic JRPGs that you can always revisit (or visit, if you’ve never played them) that would give you a much better experience. There’s also the fact that, at least right now (at launch), Lost Sphear is priced at a bafflingly steep $50, and unless you’re a dedicated fan of such JRPGs, I don’t think it completely justifies a purchase at that price- not when there’s so many other, much better games on the market that you can purchase for pretty the same amount of money (if not less).
