Toukiden: Age of Demons Second Opinion

Out for a limb

Toukiden: Age of Demons

HIGH Perfectly timing a super attack to cleave filthy Oni limbs.

LOW As good as the combat is, it eventually grows stale through repetition.

WTF I need a tail from this Oni. Now that it’s dead, I can’t chop it off.

Hammer time.

HIGH Rachel, Sterk and Zhurong all playable in the same game? Do not wake me from this beautiful dream.

HIGH Realizing that I'd become a good enough alchemist to craft the most powerful equipment in the game.

LOW Okay, I know that secret boss is a giant wolf with cosmic abilities, but he's still a little overpowered.

WTF Did the game just take time out for a competitive eating subplot?

Atelier Meruru Plus: The Apprentice of Arland Review

Now, Go Bravely

HIGH Forging ridiculously awesome equipment and putting it to use.

LOW The game is eternally marching towards an ill-advised cutoff point.

WTF Phonetically speaking, Esty Dee is quite possibly the most unfortunate name ever.

Great seasoning, but short on steak

HIGH Fixes some issues that Monster Hunter fails to address.

LOW Not nearly enough variety in all aspects.

Staying Alive

HIGH Landing a well timed Power Blow that destroys the opponent—not to mention everyone and everything around them.

LOW Inconsistent netcode often leads to irritating online matches.

WTF Virtua Fighter characters made it into the series before Rachel and Momiji did? Seriously?

Taking a Stab at a New Audience

HIGH Swooping down onto an enemy battleship before destroying the entire fleet.

LOW The versus multiplayer is intolerably bad.

WTF "Hello Canna, I'm Ryu. It means 'Dragon.' Now, shake this scabby corrupted hand of mine. I said shake it!"
