Mugen Souls Review | Hardcore Gamer

The traditional console RPG is a genre in a very strange place. Square-Enix is out of it completely for the time being, Atlus’s RPG output is focused primarily on the handhelds, and everyone else is trying to translate the MMORPG formula to the single-player experience. For anyone wanting to kick back in front of the TV with a nice menu-driven combat system that lets you think about the moves and their consequences, pickings are pretty slim. There’s no question the genre needed some serious shaking up, but as Mugen Souls‘s battle system demonstrates, it’ll be nice when things settle down again as well. (Mugen Souls, PS3) 3.5/5
