Fun & engaging game. Graphics are awesome and the combat is fun (once you get the hang of it). Lots of high action and fast pacing for most of the game, with some sections of pretty mild “detective” work to break up the pacing. Story is decent, characters are all pretty solid and varied. Music is high energy and over the top but actually quite fitting. The combat system is really the center stage of the game, and while it can take some time to adjust to controlling two characters at once, it does get pretty intuitive and rhythmic after a while. It’s pretty fun to switch between your legions and pick your favorite one to battle with. Story overall took me around 20hrs to complete, then they offer some pretty fun post game content that’s essentially little side missions/battles.
Some cons for me were mostly during the “detective” portions of the game. The “investigating” you have to do is just so simplistic and even patronizing in how easy it is. It definitely feels tacked on after the developers spent all their time building the combat system. There were moments that dragged a bit as some missions felt repetitive or too much like errands. But then you’d end up in a crazy boss battle that was really fun and engaging so you’d quickly forget the more bland moments. I also wish the hero character would speak at least a little. Felt odd to have his team constantly communicating with him/her for them to just be completed silent the whole time. Also not being able to save mid mission was a little annoying. Not really big issues, just minor gripes.
Overall the game is beautiful and action packed. Combat system is very unique, deep, and really pretty fun. Don’t expect too much from the story or side missions, but that’s not the meat of the game. Enjoy it for the visuals and mindless fun of the crazy battles.
Excellent and has potential to be a top 10 switch game some day
