Lost Sphear Review - IGN

This RPG is so cluttered with homages to classics that it fails to create an identity of its own.

Lon3wolf2072d ago

Maybe worth it at 1/2 of the price they are trying to charge for this, £38 lol.

Gardenia2071d ago

Can't believe they screwed this up. Apparently Japan can't make old school JRPG's anymore. Sad really

Really? Have you seen Dragon Quest XI ?

Elda2072d ago

The game is worth 15 or 20 dollars.

Prince_TFK2072d ago

Damn...and I was really looking forward to this one. Very disappointing. Oh well, MHW here I come.

Bahamut2072d ago

Octopath Traveler looks fantastic. Keep your eye on that. Ni No Kuni 2 as well.

SegaGamer2072d ago

So you're not going to play just because IGN gave it an average score ? make your own mind up on game, don't let others do it for you.

TekoIie2071d ago

To be fair a few mixed reviews can make me have doubts about buying a game that I consider to currently be overpriced.

I think I'm going to buy this in a week or two but its possible i may not now.

Prince_TFK2071d ago


With gaming already as expensive as it is, I gotta be more careful in selecting what game I could buy, especially since this month has so many great ones including Subnautica, DFZ, and MHW. I couldn’t afford all at once, so priority, you know.

But you’re right. I will keep this one in my radar once I clear up some other games.

This game is on PC and every console except Xbox?

What do you need to know about Tokyo RPG Factory

There are certain smaller studios out there making Japanese games that are gradually growing in notoriety. One of them is Tokyo RPG Factory, a developer that most people probably know as the one that is owned by Square Enix. (Other acceptable answers include “the one that makes sad games” or “the one where all the games look a lot alike.” It’s been five years since its founding in 2014, and the company has kept on trucking. In fact, it has a new game coming out this year! Which means now is the perfect time to figure out more about it and why you may want to take an interest in the team’s games.

I recommend I Am Setsuna. Great little JRPG with an amazing soundtrack.

Tapani1656d ago

How does it compare to say, FFIV or Chrono Trigger?

Segata1656d ago

Not at all. Tokyo RPG factories games are average at best. Just try Octopath Traveler. The game is fantastic.

Tapani1656d ago (Edited 1656d ago )

I’ve been thinking about it, but heard that it is also mediocre. I didn’t like Bravely Default either. Been lately playing again Xenogears, Chrono Cross and Final Fantasy Tactics, and none of the new games don’t even come close. I did enjoy Saga Frontier 1-2. Would you say I should still try Octopath Traveler?

Segata1655d ago

Where have you heard Octopath is Mediocre? because everyone praises the game. It's not the same developer as BD. I hated BD. Ocotpath has the best original OST of 2018 bar none. It's truly a great game and the best non 1st party Switch game of 2018

CDbiggen1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

The thing that has personally turned me off of Octopath is how the other party members basically have nothing to do with the story of your currently chosen protagonist. I've not played the game but that's what I've read and seen. I know it's the kind of thing that would take me right out of the experience.
