Summary

The portability of Rainbow Moon makes the game that much more attractive, allowing for addictive grinding in convenient spurts that the PS3 version couldn't allow. The retro presentation and leveling systems work in tandem extremely well, even if the narrative-less grind to max level will take a while.

We like

  • Addictive stat-based leveling
  • Fast-paced tactical combat
  • Attractive modern/retro combination

We dislike

  • Weak narrative embedded in quests
  • Pervasive grinding
