Beyond the challenge of combat, Battle Chasers is sustained through the strength of its story, a rollicking tale that takes our heroes literally to hell and back. It's bolstered by some sharp dialogue, gorgeous artwork, and an ensemble that plays extremely well off of each other. Lots of work has gone into Nightwar since its first release, and the balancing improvements make it an easy game to recommend on all platforms.

I didn’t quite appreciate the lack of freedom when navigating the overworld, and I witnessed a handful of issues that resulted in a crash to the home-screen, but when all is said and done there’s a great deal of content within to keep fans engaged for several hours on end. The combat is well balanced and challenging, the enemy and boss variety is top notch, the randomly generated dungeons ensures that puzzle solving and secret seeking never feels repetitive or bland, and everything in between is just as commendable.

With a gorgeous art style and enjoyable, old-fashioned gameplay, Battle Chasers: Nightwar is almost something very special. It's just a shame its unforgiving difficulty spikes stand in the way.
