Rainbow Moon Review: Gold Under the Rainbow | GamePlox

GamePlox:

No, it doesn’t do anything particularly special to innovate old RPG standards, and it certainly isn’t perfect. But what Rainbow Moon does do as a new, decidedly “old school” RPG, it does exceedingly well. The story might be shallow, but it’s entertaining; the combat will feel familiar, but it’s addictive and beautifully executed; the graphics and art might not be cutting-edge, but they’re definitely gorgeous and original; and so on and so forth. (PS3, Rainbow Moon) A/A+

why isn't anyone talking about this game? It's been getting great reviews and trust me it deserves them. I'm 30 hours in and addicted to the gameplay. Brilliant

I've heard the game forces a great deal of grinding to progress, which it mitigates by selling you shortcut microtransactions on the store.

Is that true? that's roughly what I was reading on GAF.

That aside, I hate the artstyle.

well I'm playing on 'Hard' with 'Adventurous' (the hardest possible settings) and yes, there is some grinding, but progress is steady if your tactics are good

I'll probably get it when I have the money. I don't mind steady progression.

I do really hate the sprite work though, but I can overlook it.
GribbleGrunger  +   897d ago
It's actually pretty good, especially in 1080p
ChronoJoe  +   897d ago
I mean the artwork on the menus rather than the actual 3D models, the enemies and environments look pretty decent.
