15 years ago the world was plagued by dark creatures and only a few people survived this apocalypse. Equipped with supernatural powers the SoulWorkers are the last salvation for mankind.
Players slip into the role of such a SoulWorker, but must first discover and unleash their powers. Depending on the chosen character (4 classes currently) there are different abilities. Many contents can also be completed with a group of 4 players whose skills complement each other - this ensures cool combinations and a very special firework of effects.
Even though the focus of SoulWorker is clearly on PvE with over 100 dungeons, there is something for PvP friends to do - in a huge mass battle (an open PvP area), players can use their anime skills.
Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris
Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris - solid JRPG with sluggish story. The setting of the popular Anime Sword Art Online, which itself is based on a manga series, lends itself wonderfully well to a computer game. Alicization Lycoris is thus also the seventh official game adaptation of the science fiction saga conceived by Reki Kawahara.
Fans of the series will surely be happy with this game. A new story strand of the Alicization Arc awaits all patient players, as well as familiar characters and a complex combat system full of possibilities. Less patient players will initially frustrate the JRPG. The gameplay is much too tough in the first half of the game. So if you have a lot of stamina and are a lover of the popular but predictable narrative of Sword Art Online, you can put the adventure on your wish list.
The combat system may initially be overtaxing and lead to wild buttonsmashing, but later turns out to be successful. Fights and movement sequences feel fluid and there are many possible combat strategies to explore through the different attacks, blocks and spells. The fights in Alicization Lycoris are also visually impressive. Every hit is rewarded with colorful lights and effects. With complex attack patterns we almost lost sight of poor Kirito.
Attack on Titan 2
The game does not retell the plot of the second anime season, but rather summarizes the highlights of Season 1 and Season 2. Some scenes, such as the appearance of the female Titan or Eren Hunter's Metamorphosis, are chewed through once again in all coziness. So that this is not as boring as it sounds, the developers have thought of a little trick. We don't slip into the role of an anime character, but build our own Titan Slasher.
Attack on Titan 2 offers some interesting new features like the (rather rudimentary) base building on the battlefield and the friendship system. I was also surprised by the enormously comprehensive character editor. Finally I can create my own favorite hero and experience the highlights of the first and second anime season from my own perspective - pretty cool.
However, the developers have rested as much as possible, the biggest criticism of the predecessor also squeezes the game fun this time. The missions always run the same way, the actually spectacular battles are mostly much too easy, and the Titans only seem threatening in danger mode.
Tales of Symphonia
Tales of Symphonia offers role-players an epic adventure with sophisticated combat and skill systems rarely seen on the dice. Although the story is obviously inspired by Final Fantasy X, this does not detract from the fun of the game. The stylish animé characters quickly grow on you and the plot has some twists and surprises in store despite a certain predictability.
Nevertheless, the gameplay could have been tightened a bit and provided with more side quests. Also the save points don't always seem to be optimally placed. The real-time battles, which are trimmed for teamwork, are, however, staged in an exciting way throughout and can even be fought with up to three friends despite occasional problems with the overview. Even the somewhat childlike presentation fits perfectly into the lovingly designed game world.
The atmospheric English voice output could have sounded more often, but the quality of the German texts makes up for this shortcoming. Friends of action-packed Nippon RPGs can access the game without hesitation.
Trials of Mana
With Trials of Mana, Square Enix releases a 3D remake of the 2D action role-playing game Seiken Densetsu 3, which was released in Japan in 1995 and in Europe in 2019 as part of the Collection of Mana.
Even though the mixed remake of Seiken Densetsu 2 aka Secret of Mana had cast dark shadows ahead, Square Enix has managed the new edition of Seiken Densetsu 3 aka Trials of Mana surprisingly well. Of course, you can clearly see the age of 25 years in the game and story design of this action role-playing game, which has also moved from the second to the third dimension, but overall the game experience is coherent and charming. There are also technical flaws this time, but they are far less serious.
In terms of playability, there's hardly anything to criticize in my eyes: The combat system is wonderfully fast and direct, the character development is free and multi-faceted. The interwoven adventures of the six playable protagonists also continue to inspire enthusiasm. On top of that, there is also completely new game content. Only the omission of the local co-op mode hurts and the PC version would have benefited from more options and a sensible mouse control in the menus.
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot
The fascination of Dragon Ball Z at its highest level so far
Attention, dear Dragon Ball fans: The latest Saiyajin spin-off, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, delivers the entire Z saga of anime for replay and combines it with the popular genre of action role-playing games. We can freely explore the world created by Akira Toriyama and visit the iconic locations of the original, fall into the collecting mania and read the riot act to all the minions of the universe - Saiyajin style, of course.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot may not be the milestone of anime adaptations we were hoping for, but does it have to be to make a successful and really good action role-playing game? No, Cyber Connect 2 has done a really good job of fulfilling childhood dreams of Dragon Ball fans. It is so enormously satisfying to fly with full power over the Kame-House inhabited by Muten-Roshi, Lunch and the turtle. Even more so to witness the different developments of the iconic characters, especially Son-Gohan, who grows from a whiny boy to the great Saiyaman. Here, a nostalgic feeling is created that has no equal. To be a child again and feel as light-hearted as when you were crouching in front of the television.
For fans, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is clearly a must buy, as the template is equipped with a lot of love was put into action. Beyond that the developer team succeeds in transporting the myth Dragon Ball pleasantly even for non-specialists. However, you should not expect a full-fledged roleplaying game.
KurtzPel is a 3rd person, anime inspired, action battle game from KOG, the developers of Grand Chase and Elsword Online. You can enjoy several 2vs2 PvP modes under a smart and automated matchmaking system. Or, you can plunge into a larger-than-life, raidstyle, quest based combat system against large, dangerous boss monsters.
In KurtzPel the classic action game dynamics are present as soon as players enable their characters to use 2 different jobs (Karma) that can be switched with each other.
Transportation missions (PVP) Deathmatch (PVP) - Defeat your opponents and those who score more points will win. Capture the Flag (PVP) - Capture the flag on the battlefield and those who have the most points at the end of the battle will win. Conquest (PVP) - Split into the Red and Blue teams and the team that has captured the zone at the end of the battle wins.
Epic/repeat mission (PVE) Fight important enemies in the KurtzPel universe and learn the history of KurtzPel by interacting with hero NPCs. Besides, it has a small chance to leave special rewards, as well as several difficulty levels and provides PVE-style challenges.
DRAGON QUEST XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
At its core, Dragon Quest 11 delivers stock-conservative JRPG entertainment that makes even a Ni No Kuni 2 look like an innovation miracle. But I've never seen JRPG entertainment at this level before! What a fairy-tale world of games! What a heartbreakingly told story! And how wonderfully smooth the game plays - thanks to the many small but fine optimizations in character, combat and crafting systems! If you've never had any use for goggle eyes and cuddly monsters, you'll only shrug your shoulders in Dragon Quest 11. But if you're looking for a classic JRPG after the experiments of Ni No Kuni 2 and Final Fantasy 15 times, you won't find anything better for years.
To experience the end of the story, the average player easily needs 60 to 70 hours. If you are easily distracted by side jobs, you can add another 30 to 40 hours. Great for the price-performance ratio, but the story would do better if it were told in a more concise and crisp way. But once the somewhat lengthy exposition of the first five hours has been completed, the role-play quickly reaches its peak.
Ni no Kuni Wrath of the White Witch
The role-playing game is a musically enchanting, graphically fantastic, both narratively mature and very loving adventure, even in 2019! Because it has not been changed in content, it still has playful weaknesses, as companions in combat sometimes don't think along or boss fights are hardly a challenge. On the other hand, collecting and training powerful or magical companions as well as making my own equipment is motivating - so much so that I still love to fall into this wonderful animation on PC.
In fact Ni No Kuni: The Curse of the White Queen is still a wonderful experience! From a quiet start to exploring the big world map to reaching idyllic villages and towns with their lovely inhabitants: I feel as comfortable on PC as I did on PlayStation 3 a good six years ago, and the mature way in which the game experts at Level 5 and the filmmakers at Studio Ghibli tell a story that is as light-footed as it is serious is still remarkable. While the small weaknesses of the tactical real-time battles are playfully apparent, all in all, the role-playing game has earned our Gold Award just as it did then.
Phantasy Star Online 2
Phantasy Star is one of the oldest RPGs and had its debut in Japan in 1987 on the Sega Master System. In the year 1988 it came then also into the west. Subsequently, there were offshoots of the series from time to time, but not all of them made it to our countries.
You could also call the anime action MMORPG released in 2012 an MMO dungeon crawler, because that's what you will mainly do in the game. In PSO2 there is no dedicated tank, healer or DD. Each class is a DD. The difference between the classes is only marginal. The difference between the classes is only marginal: 100 to 400 health points, the type of attack (Meele, Ranged, Tech) and the mobility of the class. So there are classes that move in the air during an air combo and others that only fall after an attack in the air. This can be avoided with a dodge roll, you can learn more about this in the video at the end of the article. If you deal with your own class long enough, each class is very flexible and fast. Of course there are some hero types like the bouncer.
The game is not Pay2Win, but of course it offers advantages over the cash store. So you can expand your inventory or only sell items to other players if you have a premium subscription. The same applies to the receipt of further MAGs. You can also get the purchasable EXP-boosters in the game through client orders, dailies and when you unlock titles. There are many players who have neither used the Premium Subscription nor the Cashshop and have played the game actively for years. If you are interested in costumes, cashshop hairstyles or tattoos, you can buy them from other players without a premium subscription. However, you should be aware that they are very expensive. However, if you use the three free character slots and play at least one character to the maximum level, you will receive enough meseta, the in-game currency, in the long run via the dailies.
