Honkai: Star Rail

Honkai: Star Rail

Company: miHoYo

Genre: RPG

Release date: April 26, 2023

Platform: PlayStation 5, Windows, IOS, Android

Game Score (Metacritic): 80

Honkai: Star Rail 'nj is a closed-world action-adventure computer game with RPG elements developed and published by HoYoverse, a Chinese company. It is the fourth installment in the Honkai series (the first two installments were called Houkai), which features new characters along with alternate versions of existing characters from Honkai Impact 3rd.

It was destined for success, and the big numbers shouldn't be surprising—over 30 million pre-registrations20 million users who downloaded the game on the first day, App Store download records, and tens of millions of dollars earned already in the first few days.

"New Genshin Impact", while similar in style (and even interface), is different in many ways from the previous anime hit HoYoverse. And at the same time, it's not a direct sequel to Honkai Impact 3rd, which the Chinese released before Genshin - there are obvious parallels and differences.

Honkai: Star Rail is a turn-based tactical RPG set in the Honkai universe. The story follows a group of young explorers, including the player character, as they travel across the galaxy, exploring different worlds, solving puzzles, interacting with a wide range of characters, and ultimately finding a way to stop the Honkai. This force threatens to destroy all life.

Honkai: Star Rail's combat gameplay is strategic and challenging. The playable characters are taken from the Honkai universe, and each has unique abilities that are true to the source material.

During the game, players control a team consisting of four characters. The characters possess distinct abilities, which the players can use to confront their opponents in battles.

One Piece Odyssey

One Piece Odyssey

Company: Bandai Namco Entertainment

Genre: RPG

Release date: January 13, 2023

Platform: Windows, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S

Game Score (Metacritic): 73

One Piece Odyssey is a turn-based role-playing game that can be played in the third person as you explore the world. The game is set in the world of the original One-Piece anime when the Straw Hat Pirates are shipwrecked and end up on a mysterious island known as Waford.

In the game, you become responsible for getting the Straw Hat Pirates to work together and find a way to escape from Warford, as the island is filled with dangerous creatures, unfriendly locals, and natural hazards.

In One Piece Odyssey, players control all nine characters, each with unique abilities to use to their advantage as they battle monsters. In addition to the characters' abilities, One Piece Odyssey's combat mechanics remain faithful to the source material.

Also included is a gameplay element such as the "Dramatic Scene," which creates random and unexpected situations during battles, such as when Sanji is distracted by women.

As you can see from the above, One Piece Odyssey is challenging. But it's worth a shot of happiness and enjoyment, with good gameplay, an interesting story, and beautiful visuals.

Star Ocean: The Second Story R

Star Ocean: The Second Story R

Company: Enix

Genre: ARPG

Release date: November 2, 2023

Platform: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows

Game Score (Metacritic): 86

Star Ocean is a familiar title to many, as it was one of the original JRPG games that made the genre a classic.

The plot of the game centers around Claude C. Kenni, a mysterious soldier who is transported to a distant and alien factory. There, he meets Rena Lanford, a local village girl with mysterious powers and an even more mysterious past.

Together, they will embark on an adventure that will uncover a plan set in motion hundreds of years ago by forces beyond their comprehension.

The combat system has consistently criticized the original game, and the remake has finally rectified that, following the example set by the newer games in the series. Combat is action-oriented, and with new levels and skill management, players can now easily focus on taking down the enemy rather than micromanaging their group.

Sand Land takes place on a post-apocalyptic Earth. The ecology is wholly destroyed, and water is considered the most valuable resource. In the role of the demon prince Beelzebub, the player goes on a journey with Sheriff Rao and the Thief. We hope this will start a new franchise for anime fans to dive into a few games.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink

Granblue Fantasy: Relink

Company: Cygames

Genre: ARPG

Release date: February 1, 2024

Platform: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows

Game Score (Metacritic): 80

Granblue Fantasy: Relink hit Steam in February of this year. Three days after its release, it gained more than 100,000 players at its peak, surpassing Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth and Persona 3 Reload. A week later, it received almost 13,000 positive reviews. And that's not surprising.

Granblue Fantasy Relink is an ARPG that features a single-player or a party of up to four players in online co-op mode. In this mode, players can experience real-time combat and a fast-paced system. They can also choose from a diverse roster of well-known characters from Granblue Fantasy, each specializing in weaponry, skills, and combat styles.

It's the perfect embodiment of what classic anime should look like. Everything is beautiful here: the character portraits in the diary, the watercolor landscapes, the cat scenes and clips, the angles, and all the other details.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink is a vivid, spectacular movie. It is also an action movie, and the plot is only meant to justify the fights every second. The story revolves around a mysterious blue-haired girl named Lyria, with whom the heroes travel around the islands of the Celestial Kingdom.

Powerful creatures guard the islands. Liria's unique abilities allow her to interact with them, and they become the reason why, at some point, the girl is kidnapped and tried to use for hazardous purposes. Then we spend the whole game chasing the kidnappers to get Lyria back.

The abundance of heroes with their styles is pleasing. In addition to the starting eight, 12 more unique characters can be added to the team as you get "squad member cards."

Information about the latest update can be found on Reddit's page. Discussions about who is in the top five in the latest update have started.

Persona 3 Reloaded

Persona 3 Reloaded

Company: Atlus

Genre: RPG, social simulation

Release date: February 2, 2024

Platform: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Windows

Game Score (Metacritic): 87

Persona 3 Reload, a remake of one of Atlus' most essential releases, Persona 3 Portable.

The story remains the same. We play as a boy who arrives in Tatsumi Port Island to study at Gekkoukan High School. Upon arrival, he enters the dormitory, where the hero signs a specific contract, and enters the S.E.E.S. Squad. The main story centers on a mysterious tower known as Tartarus and the Dark Hours. You are one of the few who can wander into this dangerous hour and fight off the Shadows lurking within it.

As the game progresses, the player has to choose how they want to spend a new day—either hanging out with friends to strengthen bonds or improving characteristics (courage, erudition, and charm) to access new companions and locations. Only in the evening can you go to Tartarus to fight the Shadows.

The basic mechanics have not changed: you meet a new creature, try all attacks on it, and eventually find its weakness. If the weakness is found, the opponent is stunned, and when all enemies are knocked down, you can make a joint attack, severely injuring all opponents.

The game has an interesting system—if you stun the target with one character, you can pass the turn to any companion to continue the chain and hit the weak point with the next one. Another option, theurgy, is unlocked after defeating the second-story boss. Each character has a new scale next to his portrait, filled with specific actions unique to all heroes.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

Company: Square Enix

Genre: ARPG

Release date: February 29, 2024

Platform: PlayStation 5

Game Score (Metacritic): 92

The new JRPG is the second of a three-part remake of the iconic Final Fantasy VII. It continues the story of the 2020 reimagining. The action of the game is set in a fictional world called Planet. The plot tells the adventures of mercenary Claud Strife, who helps the eco-terrorist rebel organization "LAWINA" defeat the electric power company threatening the world.

The protagonist and his friends search for Sephiroth, an antagonist and former elite soldier, to stop him.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was highly praised by journalists - the rating on Metacritic at the time of release was 92 out of 100.

The battle system has mostly stayed the same compared to Remake. It combines real-time battles with turn-based battles - during the battle, you can pause the game and give orders to the squad characters.

Applying skills and spells takes an extraordinary scale ATB - Active Time Battle - that fills up gradually during the battle. The filling speed depends on the character's activity on the battlefield - if he stands, the scale does not move.

The materia system from the last part has not disappeared. The player is free to encrust the characters' equipment with matter balls, which give various bonuses—from increased health to using different skills and spells.

An innovation was the addition of an open world to Rebirth. Another innovation is mini-games. And in Rebirth, there are many, even too many. Some story sections consist of several mini-games.
