Nihon Falcom has delivered yet another stellar entry in the Trails of Cold Steel series. If you're a newcomer, you'll need to start at the beginning to genuinely appreciate the whole package. However, if you're a long-time fan of the franchise, then you'll love every thrilling second of it.
There’s a lot of investment Trails of Cold Steel 3 demands, and there are significant flaws, such as poor dungeon design and pacing issues, that mar the experience. Nonetheless, the strong writing, immense payoff to long running storylines, great characterization, and immensely satisfying battle system make this a very easy recommendation, and perhaps the strongest entry the Legend of Heroes series has had thus far.
With its solid gameplay mechanics, excellent world-building and character development, The Legend Of Heroes: Trails Of Cold Steel III is an excellent Japanese role-playing and a more than worthy new entry in the long-running series. Some small flaws like slow pacing do not impact the experience as much as the lack of knowledge about the entire series do, which lessens the impact of several events and plot development. This makes Trails of Cold Steel III a game that must be played only after the previous two entries in the series have been completed.
