Review: Rainbow Moon (PS3)

 Charming RPG game, Gorgeous graphics with a simple interface. Allowing you to not get bogged down in stat checking and menu hopping. Game play is your typical turn based affair and works really well. Hours upon hours of game play await you in the delightful game. You acquire new team members to mix it up, Whilst also collecting new deployment options in the form of plans which change the whole battle system from other games in the genre.

Pros:

  • Cheerful bright graphics
  • simple menu layout
  • random encounters are a choice not a must
  • varied locations
  • ability to “craft” weapons with material gathered
  • hours and hours of game play
  • easy controls
  • The game changes alot meaning tactics will have to be used.

Cons:

  • Music is really bad and really begins to grate. Options only allow on or off
  • the story and dialogue is a bit naff, lord of the rings type story it ain’t
  • navigating some areas can be awkward, Trees obscure your view
  • No auto save but you can manually save if you remember!
  • DLC=buying it basically makes the whole game easier. I see it as a bad thing
  • the first hour of game play is slow and boring as you level your character up

In summary it is a worthy purchase and you cant get far wrong with the price. You will lose track of time while playing. It will encourage the whole “just one more go” syndrome. Ignore the bad story writing and once you get past the first few levels, you have yourself one hell of a good game.

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!
