Legasista

 

RPGs; whether they be JRPGs, Action RPGs or MMOs, have always found ways to entice gamers to experience the epic tale. This is done via over-the-top characters, enriched storylines and even heartfelt moments; all of which is something we long for...

Legasista Review

 

There's a robust dungeon crawler buried beneath Legasista's typical anime-style trappings.

Engaging dungeon exploration and looting ; Clever, challenging enemies and traps ; Lots of customization options for existing and player-made characters ; Fantastic soundtrack

Cheap-looking cutscenes ; Customization tools are a pain to use ; Dialogue errors make certain gameplay elements confusing

The keys to managing your equipment are the aforementioned energy frames. The energy frame a character uses determines precisely what gear and enhancement items they can equip, as well as the order in which your gear and HP is likely to break. Multiple...

There I go, making this game sound amazing, as if intense action is waiting around every corner. Unfortunately scenes like the one described above are few and far between, and mainly appear in the latter half of the game. The first half, by contrast,...

Legasista is a huge game, but does that alone make it worth your time and money?

Legasista is a game for people who enjoy level grinding for the sake of level grinding. It tailors its experience entirely toward that niche, often to the detriment of everyone else. If you’re looking for dynamic combat, you should pass Legasista. That...

In the spirit of games like 3D Dot Game Heroes and Rainbow Moon comes a robust dungeon crawler from System Prisma called Legasista. For those craving some old-school gameplay with plenty of vibrant Japanese artistry and lots of depth and customization,...

The Ugly: “…okay, now I remember why dungeon-crawling can get a little tiring.”

Review: Legasista for PS3 - GamerTell

 

Interesting story, lots of story and random dungeons, lots of different kinds of equipment and it looks great. You can create custom skills. You can adjust weapon properties. Can edit custom characters on a computer. The soundtrack is utterly fantastic

Very difficult to edit custom characters on a PS3. Only Japanese voice acting. May take a while to understand how Energy Frames work. Leina’s appearance makes her the most ridiculous fan-service character I’ve ever seen. Can only have 10 custom...

Legasista Playtest: Character Customization To The Extreme

 

Legasista's sprite editor lets you tweak a character's appearance to your liking—body, hair, coats, and even weapons. You can even edit a sprite on your PC and transfer it to the game!

The game isn’t dubbed in English, and only comes with the original Japanese dub.

This PSN dungeon crawler has an old-school look, but is it any fun? Our full review.

Deep customization ; Loot and leveling can become addicting ; Tons of options

Grinding is a must at times ; No English voices ; Some mechanics not explained very well

Legasista Review

 

Legasista is a surprisingly enjoyable little dungeon crawler.

Legasista shows some good growth on the part of the System Prisma team, which has come up with a more interesting active combat system to accompany its dungeon adventures. Although only huge dungeon-crawling fans are likely to be entranced enough to...
