Words cannot express the love I have for Lost Sphear. It’s such a great game to play on the Nintendo Switch. Although it did have a few shortcomings, like the fact that enemy encounters are secluded to enclosed areas, and Vulcosuits must be used quite sparingly, I couldn’t seem to put it down. Perhaps it was the awesome combat system and excellent story that kept me playing, either way, I’m glad I had the opportunity to immerse myself in it.

Lost Sphear has some good ideas and mechanics working together when it comes to battle, but everything else falls short and feels dull. The reused dungeons, backtracking, and slow-paced story don’t give me much to fight for, even if the end does come together in an interesting way. Sadly, the tedious grind through a milquetoast adventure is sour for far too long before coming together.

There’s little in Lost Sphear that you haven’t seen before in JRPGs, but that doesn’t mean it’s a title to be dismissed out of hand. If you can look past the clichés, Lost Sphear presents an engaging world, deep battle system, and plenty of replayability which will likely delight many an RPG fan. Tokyo RPG Factory has proven with this release that it’s capable of learning from past mistakes, and though Lost Sphear still might not be the game to surpass Chrono Trigger, it proves itself to be worthy of that legacy.

If you had asked me just two weeks ago to name the biggest storytelling sin a game could commit, I would have told you it was making players ask questions without giving them a reason to care about the answers. Ask me today and I’ll tell you something different. Lost Sphear buried me under convoluted logic and explanations, lore and jargon, only to cast it aside with a shrug whenever the details were inconvenient to the action. It answered my questions, but in ways so fundamentally disconnected and absurd that I regretted even caring in the first place.

However, that isn't to say that Lost Sphear isn't fun to play. The numerous gameplay features like vulcosuits, spritnite, and artifacts come together to create an enjoyable and complex turn-based system that promotes strategy. Here's hoping that Tokyo RPG Factory's next project takes that gameplay design and applies it to a heartfelt story that doesn't feel like it was assembled on a conveyor belt.

As mentioned, Lost Sphear utilises the ATB battle system and is very similar to that of I Am Setsuna. One standout feature though is that the actual positioning of the characters in the battle can greatly affect how successfully they fight. With each character comes a different style of combat, as some are close range, others ranged, and even some with huge areas of effect. Take for example Van - his ranged attack will pass through multiple opponents so, if lined up correctly before attacking, he can unleash his barrage on a whole line of baddies maximising damage across your foes.

Lost Sphear es un juego que busca su lugar entre aquellos jugadores que en su día nos emocionábamos con cada Final Fantasy, cada Grandia y cada Dragon Quest. El juego se debate entre recuperar un género casi en desuso y, al mismo tiempo, hacerlo sin que la experiencia aleje al jugador más actual.

Al final, Tokyo RPG Factory está demostrando que cumple con su papel: producir más juegos de rol para Square Enix que complementen a sus superproducciones. Después de dos proyectos, el equipo debería arriesgar un poco más o tratar de imprimir personalidad a sus juegos, hacer que estos RPG destaquen por méritos propios y no por apelar a la nostalgia; hoy día es muy fácil jugar directamente a multitud de clásicos que siguen siendo superiores a Lost Sphear.

Trop cher pour ce qu’il propose en termes de réalisation, Lost Sphear a cependant pour lui un charme, une véritable fraîcheur. Personnages clichés mais attachants, environnements travaillés (avec cependant de nombreux copiés/collés), musique agréable quoiqu’un peu redondante et mécaniques solides en font de fait un joli représentant de cette école régressive entièrement vouée à l’évocation des années Super Nintendo.

Tirant jusqu'au point de rupture sur la corde nostalgique, le nouvel effort de Tokyo RPG Factory passe beaucoup de temps à regarder dans le rétroviseur pour satisfaire un large public. Si les débuts s'avèrent poussifs dans tous les domaines, Lost Sphear réserve malgré tout aux plus patients quelques bonnes idées, autant dans sa narration pas si manichéenne que dans la dimension stratégique multiple de ses combats. Mais pour profiter de ses qualités, il faudra nécessairement fermer les yeux sur sa direction artistique fadasse et sans âme, ses dialogues à rallonge et ses cut-scenes planquées à chaque coin de rue. Est-ce vraiment là le prix de la nostalgie ?

A trop vouloir rendre hommage aux jeux de rôle japonais des années 90, Lost Sphear oublie de nous surprendre. Ce manque d'audace et de personnalité est incontestablement le principal reproche que l'on pourra faire à un jeu par ailleurs relativement solide et sympathique. Car Tokyo RPG Factory maîtrise très (peut-être trop...) bien sa recette. Mais le studio doit commencer à prendre garde à ce que le côté "usine" qui apparaît dans son patronyme ne se fasse pas trop sentir à l'avenir.

Тем не менее Lost Sphear найдет своих поклонников, крутая боевка не даст соврать. Для знакомства с жанром эта игра тоже подойдет, но мой вам совет: если хотите увидеть поистине культовую JRPG, сыграйте в Chrono Trigger. Для расширения кругозора и чтобы было с чем сравнить

Samengevat heeft Lost Sphear te weinig een eigen smoel en doet sterk onder voor triple A RPG’s van nu. Hoewel je het daar eigenlijk ook weer niet te veel mee mag vergelijken. De sfeer met prachtige muziek zijn geheel eigen en de dialogen en gevechten zijn zo slecht nog niet. Sterker nog: af en toe word je aangenaam verrast. Bedenk alleen goed of je 50 euro wilt betalen voor een game met te veel oude elementen. Dat mag dat de intentie zijn van de studio, dat betekent niet dat we genoegen moeten nemen met een duur prijskaartje.

Ondanks dat de game tekort schiet in vergelijking met klassiekers als Chrono Trigger weet Lost Sphear de essentie van een klassieke RPG prima te vangen. Wanneer de game het overvloed aan mechanics achterwege laat, merk je de kracht van nostalgie. Het verhaal, de omgevingen, gevechtssystemen en alle muziek zijn een eerbetoon aan de vervlogen tijden van 16-bit RPG's. Ook al weet het niet de hoogtepunten van die games te bereiken, weet Lost Sphear die nostalgie prima aan te spreken.

Podsumowując, Lost Sphear to dość przeciętna gra, która, owszem, czerpie garściami z klasycznych gier RPG jeśli chodzi o udany system walki czy dobry system rozwoju postaci, ale jednocześnie nie stara się dojść do źródła sukcesu tych klasyków. A przecież one nie były jedynie hołdami bez polotu, a zaskakiwały, wciągały i nie wypuszczały ze swoich barwnych światów.
