Tamarak Trail Preview Cons:

  • A lot of the early game is just guesswork for what abilities do etc.
  • Combat can outstay its welcome in encounters.
  • The rolling of dice is cool as hell but it feels a bit unneeded because it has a small area and they don’t seem to roll a lot.
  • The Flow is a bit stilted.
  • Could have been a better experience having the tutorials and a practice fight all handled within its own set piece then you do a run.
  • Obviously, it’s a demo so no Steam achievements.
  • Only the one graphics setting.

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!
