Octopath Traveler Review - Shacknews

4 monthes ago   |   By N4G

From Shacknews: "It's not very often that a game like Octopath Traveler comes around. In the mid-to-late 90s, the video game scene was bustling with great Japanese role-playing games offering interesting stories and in-depth combat mechanics. Through time, that classic JRPG feeling was eventually lost in a flood of new titles touting white-knuckle action and gritty, ultra-realistic graphics. Despite developers' best efforts to rejuvenate the traditional JRPG form, nothing seemed to really stick until now. Octopath Traveler represents the best of just about everything players hope for in...

Octopath Traveler review | VideoGamer

4 monthes ago   |   By N4G

Adam Cook: "What Square Enixs charming offering has shown me is that there may be thirty JRPGs released every year, but there are very few that bend and shape ideas the way this one does. It may have flaws, but the heart of this one is bursting with delights if you invest the time. Octopath Traveler may have flaws, including a very odd frame-pacing issue that occurs randomly, often jarringly, but what road in life do you travel that is perfect?"

Review: Octopath Traveler - Not bad at all - Gaming Boulevard

Gaming Boulevard wrote:
In conclusion, I think the game is aptly called Octopath Traveler, a great new approach to one of my beloved genres. I dislike the feeling of certain combats being dragged on and on and on. So yes, I have a bit of a mixed feeling in regards to the review and how to score it. The novelty of this approach versus the forced way to fight swiftly. I think the storytelling is the main attraction.

Review: Octopath Traveler Switch review - An ambitious JRPG which excels in combat but fails on story

Review: Octopath Traveler Switch review - An ambitious JRPG which excels in combat but fails on story

4 monthes ago   |   By Pocket Gamer

Octopath Traveler is a very hard game to pin down. At its core it's a JRPG with turn-based combat, a unique art style, and a huge wealth of content to dig into - so far, so standard.
But its combat is full of tactical depth beyond simple buffing and effective spell use, and its approach to storytelling and character development is unlike anything you'll have encountered anywhere else.
It doesn't all pay off - the story in particular is hampered slightly by its devotion to its eight characters - but it makes for a truly fascinating JRPG which is remarkably easy lose hours of your life...

Octopath Traveler Review: Divide And Conquer

Octopath Traveler Review: Divide And Conquer

4 monthes ago   |   By GameSpot

Retro throwbacks rarely go for the mid-'90s mix of 2D sprites and low-res 3D models, but along comes Octopath Traveler , a game that manages to both faithfully recreate the aesthetic and add to it in subtle yet meaningful ways. It's a great look, one that draws you into the world and delights you with small artistic touches that bring something magical to otherwise simple environments. Enemies and bosses alike are lavishly drawn despite the confines of the game's intentional low-res aesthetic. It's a similar treatment that you can find in a game like Final Fantasy VI , where rough sprites...

Octopath Traveler is a modern take on classic Final Fantasy on the Nintendo Switch

4 monthes ago   |   By The Verge

If there's one constant for the Final Fantasy series, it's change. One moment, you're playing a systems-focused role-playing game like Final Fantasy V , and two decades later, that's morphed into the strange, open-world road trip of Final Fantasy XV. But this continual metamorphosis also creates a sense of nostalgia. You miss those classic games because they just don't make them that way anymore. This is particularly true of the 16-bit era Final Fantasy games for Super Nintendo, which ushered in a new wave of Japanese role-playing fans in the 1990s. There are plenty of games that have...

Octopath Traveler Review

4 monthes ago   |   By IGN

After the credits rolled on Octopath Traveler, I took a 15-minute break before I sat back down, grabbed my controller, and went back to my save file to play more. This, in spite of the fact I'd played 53 hours on my journey to complete the path of Therion, the thief whose story I'd chosen at the beginning. The more I played, the more I loved it.
Going in, I'd expected little more than a charming but run-of-the-mill homage to the 16-bit RPGs I grew up playing. Instead, Octopath Traveler treated me to a stunning tilt-shifted art style and a deep battle system that made every encounter an...

Where's Our Octopath Traveler Review?

Octopath Traveler releases tomorrow on Switch, and reviews are hitting now. However, the final verdict from Game Informer isn't ready yet. It's a long adventure; I'm 50 hours in, but I want to make sure I finish the story and see all of the tales conclude before finalizing a score. So look for our full review sometime next week!
Setting aside the mystery of the overall narrative payoff, I can say that my general impressions of the rest of the game are positive so far. The structure is novel, the visuals are fantastic, and the combat system is clever. I especially love the depth and...
