I didn’t go into Battle Chasers: Nightwar expecting much of anything, given the development studio’s relative youth as a company and the spotty record of Kickstarted games. However, Nightwar’s focus on style and character, coupled with a mostly excellent combat system, kept me hooked for much longer than I had imagined. Whatever your familiarity with its source material, this game builds a beautiful world with a surprising amount of depth just beneath the surface.
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.
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.
