With so much variety in the Switch eShop I firmly believe there’s a place for everything and likely an audience that will likely enjoy it all, it’s just tough when I hit a game that doesn’t do it for me. I find the combat mechanics in Zodiarcs to be both its strongest selling point and perhaps its greatest liability all at once. The mix of strategy coming from tactics, dice rolls, and even deck building for good measure are absolutely unique but boy did they slow things down too much for me, which then diminished my enthusiasm for everything else. Perhaps that unique flavor and the story which doesn’t feel like a cookie cutter copy of loads of other games in this vein will make it a great fit for the right crowd, just be sure you’ve got the attention span for it.
