  • A pretty approachable modern-ish take on the classic tactical strategy RPGs of yesteryear with some soapy drama

    There’s no doubt that at one time, when Square was in its full prime, tactical strategy RPGs were enjoying a surge in popularity. Driven by strong character designs and a more cerebral take on turn-based strategy overall, they were a nice change of pace for fans of their more popular JRPG brethren. If you were a fan of that era and style, Arcadian Atlas is absolutely out to scratch that itch, with a pretty familiar overall look and feel reminiscent of those titles… though a bit less polished and refined than they were. What could go either way in terms of people’s feelings is that I’d say the level of difficulty is also a bit lighter and more friendly as well. All that said, the story is going to be a hit or miss depending on tastes, not quite having a universal appeal, and I wouldn’t say it really breaks much new ground overall. There are absolutely worse representations of the subgenre on the system, though I’d argue there are also a few that do it better overall.
