Fire emblem warriors
Short review: it‘s like one of those one piece games where there are like 2 hundred enemies in front of you, just standing still doing nothing. Then there are bosses that get stunlocked by your attacks. Gameplay 1/10 story ?/10 (I haven‘t played it long enough) graphics 7/10 dubs 5/10. will return it tomorrow.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Typical japano rpg. Cat girl: check. Some girl with a bust like 2 Mt. Everests: Check. Some catchy guy as the protagonist who wants to save everyone: check. Cute little creatures as mascots: check.
At first the battle system looked rather lame. You basically have Auto attacks and by hitting your enemy a certain amount of times you unlock special abilities. But then you also get your drivers attack, which can be used after you attack the enemies with your abilities. This driver attack can also be upgraded up to the 4th level, causing much more damage. But hey that‘s not all. You basically never walk around alone and you can also tell your companions to activate their driver attacks. And you can time your abilities right after an auto attack so you can do greater damage. Oh and to do even more damage, you should use your abilities after your third auto attack.
So yeah the battle system is much more complex than it looks at first glance and makes you want to plan ahead.
Things I didn‘t like about it
-„oh nooo. Our friend was captured“ - „I‘m hungry let‘s eat“ (yeah this was basically the dialogue in the game, which was thrown into just to make a typical anime like situation where someone‘s face turns red because his stomach growls to get some laughs. *yawn*)
- You can level your characters by sleeping in a tavern. It was actually said that if the game turns out too easy, you should skip this feature. I mean wtf. I shall refrain from upgrading myself to the fullest just because the devs are too lazy to balance the game?
- despite a beautiful and detailed world (much better than Zelda botw) it lacks interaction. The only thing you can interact with are npc‘s like enemies and townsfolk and chests. But hey, there are also gathering points where you can find resources.
- the characters are rather stiff which doesn‘t suite then tbh, except for the robot.
-the boob girl has aside from her boobs nothing to show off as a character. I played the game for a good 8 hours and I still don‘t get what her personality is like.
Gameplay 8/10 story 7/10 graphics 9/10 dubs 5/10 (I don‘t know where the voice actor from the mc comes from, but he sure isn‘t from the usa. It sounds a bit like he‘s from England, but at the same time he doesn‘t. His speech kinda annoys me.
