Review: Ash Of Gods Redemption (PlayStation 4)

Ash of Gods: Redemption is a turn-based RPG that combines tactical combat, CCG elements, and a constantly evolving story in which no one is safe from death, including the main characters.

Pros:

  • Beautiful cartoon animation graphics.
  • 2.24gb download size.
  • Five save slots.
  • Platinum trophy.
  • Settings-blood/auto battle/animation speed.
  • 3 modes-classic/story/iron man mode.
  • RPG gameplay.
  • Extras-replay cutscenes and character bio.
  • Turn-based combat.
  • Branching storyline with choices to be made.
  • Opening prologue (tutorials) can be skipped.
  • Enemies-they work on an energy and health mechanic. Low energy generates powerful attacks whilst high energy is low damage attacks.
  • Decent loading times.
  • Team setup screen to change party members and gear/inventory.
  • Active party members earn exp which then gives points to upgrade stats.
  • Press L3 in a battle to get a handy tooltip pop up explaining what everything is.
  • The story is told in a storybook fashion.
  • Map-choose where to go and who to see, the map is an overall one and then smaller ones for towns or points of interest.
  • End of fight breakdown showing any loot and exp earned and for which characters.
  • The loyalty-each individual has a scale and that fluctuates depending on your decisions and actions and this will determine how people will act and fight with you.
  • Choose your own adventure feel.
  • Card battling element. Collect cards in-game and then play these in combat.

Cons:

  • Slow pace.
  • A lot of reading text.
  • Minimal voice work.
  • No auto-scroll conversations.
  • The tutorial is just basic combat.
  • It starts using mechanics with no introduction or explanation.
  • Lots of loading screens.
  • Slight screen tearing.
  • Never know when it saves.
  • It creates a lot of saving files.
  • Auto combat takes a lot of the fun out of it.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
