What I liked:
- The presentation side of the game ticked a lot of boxes for me because both the visuals and sound design create a very retro experience full of immersiveness.
- I found the story to be a very interesting tale and each character has been implemented really well giving the story quite a bit of charm.
- In terms of content the game has a decent length to it and fans of this particular genre will no doubt be satisfied wity what’s available to you here.
- There are a variety of quests for you to undertake and I was impressed with how unique each quest felt.
- Whilst the crafting system doesn’t have much depth to it I found creating weapons to be enjoyable and it did make the very good combat elements even better.
What I didn’t like:
- I felt the enemies in the game were a little on the generic side and there isn’t much in terms of variety present here.
- The boss battles often didn’t do enough to excite me and defeating them didn’t always feel as rewarding as they should have been.
Does Revenant Dogma do enough to get a recommendation from me?
All in all the JRPG genre has quite a big following and I am without a doubt one of them followers so I was eager to get to grips with Revenant Dogma. Thankfully after playing it for a few hours it was quite clear that this was a very good JRPG and I was undoubtedly hooked. One of the main aspects that hooked me was the game’s story. The story has humour placed into it but it also knows when to be serious as well and each different character gave something different to the story which of course made the story even more interesting. Obviously the story isn’t the main reason why we play these game’s so you’ll be pleased to know then that the RPG elements have been done really well even if they do lack in terms of depth. Thankfully though the lack of depth isn’t a problem in my opinion and in the end you’ll find more than enough enjoyment present in both the crafting and quests. This then means that recommending Revenant Dogma is very easy because it gets the most important aspects spot on and in the end it’s very enjoyable to say the least.
I rate Revenant Dogma 8/10
