There’s a little nerve that sits on my neck just under my left ear. It often begins to twitch when I hear certain things that irk me, the kind of things that are irksome. One of those is an when indie games throw comparative buzz words at you like you are the weedy kid on the losing team of dodgeball.
It’s basically Square Enix’s attempt to distil an entire franchise of creations into a single manageable bite sized chunk of nostalgia which I have distilled down even further in this bite sized review. It’s convoluted and overbearing story is offset by the core gameplay grind of catching mirages (Pokémon, Digimon, call them what you want) which again in turn is offset by the grind within the grind…ugh.
I take on the challenge to accurately represent a game and my feelings on said game in 500 words or less.
