Review: Octopath Traveler (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eight Paths One Exciting Journey!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under acquirecorp on  Octopa10

Developed by Acquire Corp on behalf of Square Enix and published in the Western hemisphere by Nintendo, Octopath Traveller is an open-ended sandbox JRPG with 2D-HD visuals that has you play as one of eight protagonists and experience the game's world through their point of view with all eight stories intersecting at various points in the game in any order you desire! Is this enough to make this title a timeless classic? No, but it's a very fun game in its own right and here's why:

The story in Octopath Traveler may not be the most thrilling as a game like Final Fantasy, but the interconnected storylines of all 8 main cast members is still quite enjoyable to watch unfold and will definitely make you love each and every one of the protagonists! The gameplay is excellent with a similar battle system to Bravely Default's except a bit more simplistic.

Octopath Traveler's open-endedness is one of its greatest strengths though seeing the prologue and ending of every story requires 8 playthroughs which is a bit much and left a bit of a sour taste in our mouths, but otherwise the 100+ hours we spent with this game was an absolute blast! The controls are unsurprisingly intuitive and easy to learn, and the game's difficulty is fairly balanced, but does see a difficulty spike in the final chapter of each protagonist's story.

The audiovisual-presentation in Octopath Traveler is absolutely breathtaking with gorgeous character and enemy designs, beautiful backgrounds in the world's many locations that pop in HD, and superb weather, lighting, and spell effects that look simply amazing on an HDTV!

The voice acting is also pretty enjoyable and the sound effects are quite nicely done as well, while the music is quite varied and fits the mood of the game like a glove! Overall we think this is by FAR the game's strongest point!

Bottom-Line: With an enjoyable interwoven story, excellent gameplay, intuitive controls, and a top-notch audiovisual-presentation, Octopath Traveler for the Nintendo Switch is an amazing JRPG that is not to be missed, however having to play the game 8 times to experience everything is a bit too much work and as such we did dock the score a tiny bit, but overall we highly recommend the game to all fans of the genre!
