This is getting ridiculous
HIGH This Easy Mode stacks!
LOW The combat is the worst it’s been since the original Hyperdimension Neptunia
WTF Why does Noire have a boyfriend?
HIGH Several twists make the formula feel fresh and interesting.
LOW Losing four levels' worth of EXP after an emergency re-spec.
WTF Monica's head doesn't look like it belongs on her Assassin body.
HIGH Landing that perfect AoE spell attack!
LOW I have to break open chests over multiple actions? With a rogue in the party?
WTF That's what you call a tutorial?
HIGH The first time I dominated an encounter after fully comprehending the battle system.
LOW Another last boss? Why can't this game just be over!
WTF Japanese developers really love their quasi-Christian bad guys.
HIGH Finally getting a fourth party member…
LOW After 13 hours.
WTF Even with the game explicitly telling me that I could upgrade Ragnafacts, it took me two whole chapters to remember to do it.
HIGH The moment where you finally "get" the game is pretty magical. There's a lot of depth here, but only patient gamers will stick around long enough to find it.
LOW The game's tutorial isn't as helpful as it should be. Knights in the Nightmare is difficult mostly because it does such a terrible job of explaining how it was meant to be played.
WTF The entire game is one giant WTF moment for the first few hours.
HIGH "All of Tera's towns are so impressed they're giving money!"
LOW Being one space away from a doorway and spinning a two. Then a four. Then a six.
WTF The walking undead should not make me go "Awww!" and want to pinch their cheeks.
Developed by Sting Entertainment, Dokapon Journey is a "friendship-destroying RPG" (slash board game) where up to four players can compete to save towns from monsters and to make themselves rich. It can also be played single-player with CPU-controlled opponents, but where's the fun in that?
Yggdra Union from superb developer Sting could be described as the lovechild of the Saturn's seminal and the super-popular series, but to leave it at that would be doing both game and developers a disservice. Not only has Sting captured the essence of what makes those two games great, they've added their own unique spin to create something freshly original while being familiar enough for fans of the genre to jump right in.
