DualShockers Writes:"Crimson Shroud from developer Level-5 is an example of a little game that packs a big punch. Although it sports a tiny price tag of just $8, it is a legitimate JRPG featuring a concise 6+ hour campaign and a rich, addictive combat system. Part of the developer’s acclaimed Guild01 project, this Yasumi Matsuno headed gem is a highlight of the eShop and an excellent pick-me-up for even jaded genre fans.
Crimson Shroud presents the unique premise of being inspired by old-school tabletop RPGs. Because I’m unfamiliar with the genre, I can’t say with certainty whether or not it warrants that comparison. What I am sure of is that the game involves lots and lots of dice rolling." 8.5/10
