I love Tokyo Xanadu for what is: a solid action RPG with a dramatic premise and an awesome cast of characters. The game impressed me with the responsive battle controls and beautiful special attacks. Even though the story didn’t amount to the standards Falcom has set in the past, Tokyo Xanadu truly shows what the PlayStation Vita is capable in terms of graphics and playability and I would happily play through the game again.
If someone is going to borrow, there is no shame in borrowing from the best. While it’s a bit slower to start, the characters do become fleshed out and interesting. The modern Japanese setting, while becoming extremely popular, is not something that I have even remotely grown weary of. The action works well, with giant bosses and plenty of smaller things to beat on. While it can layer the systems on a tad too thick, there is still plenty of fun to be had.
Despite all its flaws, Tokyo Xanadu isn't a terrible game. It was a great idea on paper that wasn't refined enough to reach its full potential - many of its issues are a result of the low difficulty. Fortunately, the PS4 and PC version being released later this year is supposed to address many of these problems, featuring new content and rebalanced gameplay. This original release is still a bit of a disappointment and leaves a mixed impression.
