Raffy: To an on-the-go, busy bee guy like me, slow JRPGs for consoles or PCs are a big turn-off. Especially when the story is really draggy in the first few hours. The reason I bought a console is to enjoy a game, but with my current lifestyle, I just can’t afford to sit in front of the telly and play long hours. This is the biggest letdown of Lost Sphear for me. It’s your typical story-driven JRPG that starts real slow, and where characters move like they’re on runways. Everything else about the game is nice, but the way it forces a player to invest too much time is a bummer.
Juuuust kidding, the Switch version’s portable mode is the best way to enjoy Lost Sphear. You can pick up the system and play where you left off instantly.
