IGN: Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Review

This RPG is a sprawling epic with a slow start.

Of course IGN has one of the lowest scores

There are plenty more though: https://www.metacritic.com/...

I thought this might crack 90 meta but it's for Suikoden fans. some of the quality of lives improvement could have been added e.g. save anywhere etc.

Yes, which why I said one of the lowest but still its IGN

Sure hope they can work out the performance issues on PS5 and take care of some of issues with the draw distance of things like shadows.

Kinda baffling that a game that's obviously not taxing on hardware gets a graphics and balanced mode. Good game though but I really hope they hire a new UI designer for their next game

Yeah, being so slow to do things is kind of annoying. I'm at the end of the game and I was upgrading everyone's weapon to max level, and if I did it all in one sitting, it'd probably take 45 minutes to do. I would have loved the auto advance dialogue if there wasn't such a delay in moving on to the next line when it reached the end, but oddly works great if you press the button to advance the on-screen text. I just HATE that you get the sound effect of the button press without a way to turn it off.

If you're going for recruiting all heroes, be aware there's a point of no return at some point that will lock you out from one of the major heroes. I won't spoil it, but you may want to look into that if it matters. That's what pissed me off the most. Otherwise, loving the game. I'll certainly be getting the DLC and keeping an eye out for a sequel.

Michiel198918d ago

yeah I had exactly the same issues that you are describing. Everything takes SO LONG to do when it should be done in a second. For the rest I'm really enjoying it though, Eiyuden and Sea of Stars have been games I've been looking forward to for a long time now.

Thanks for the headsup, I'm not at the end yet and hope that I didn't miss him/her
