Rainbow Moon Review Cons:
- Music is bad and really begins to grate.
- the story and dialogue are a bit naff.
- Navigating some areas can be awkward, As the trees can obscure your view.
- No autosave but you can manually save if you remember!
- A lot of grinding needed, More so later on.
- DLC is basically short-cut microtransactions.
- Food mechanic is more of an annoyance than a move forward.
- The story is a bit cliché and tired in places.
- The map is too small in the menu, making out icons and navigation is restrictive.
- Parts of the menu, text in particular look a bit smushed up.
- DLC=buying it basically makes the whole game easier.
- the first hour of gameplay is slow and boring as you level your character up

In summary, Rainbow Moon 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.
