Summary

If the dazzling production values don't win you over, the storyline, characters and engaging combat will.

We like

  • Looks and sounds amazing. Dazzling art-design and musical score.
  • Strong storyline that has genuine moments where you'll feel touched.
  • Engaging battle system that grows in challenge.
