Mugen Souls Review

 

High profile Japanese RPGs are few and far between these days. In a genre dominated by western Action-RPG's it can be hard for turn based strategy games to make the leap from obscure classic to mainstream success. Launching a new IP can be even more...

Finally managing to master the unique abilities used in battle.

Mugen Souls Review

 

Complex but repetitive and grating, Mugen Souls is overwhelming for all the wrong reasons.

Well-drawn character artwork ; Some cute digs at RPG conventions

Gameplay systems don't intersect well, and are rarely rewarding ; In-game tutorials don't explain mechanics well and can't be viewed later ; Field environments are boring and sparse ; Space battles are much too easy

Chou-Chou has access to some unique skills, however. She can shift into one of her seven personalities mid-combat, which changes her affinities toward special attacks; rather than being based on traditional RPG elements like fire, wind, and water,...

Chou Chou can transform into 7 different forms, each with its own moe type. You also have to deal with the enemy's fluctuating emotions each turn.

Review: Mugen Souls for PS3 - GamerTell

 

Great translation, plenty of funny situations, character designs are mostly really cute, there’s an interesting premise and the story is pretty interesting. Battles are a unique blend of strategic and turn-based. You can tweak the camera to your liking...

A bathing mini-game “was” removed, but since it was pretty offensive and unnecessary it’s really no big deal. There isn’t always voice acting for event scenes. A more comprehensive Moe Kill tutorial would have been helpful. All custom peons start out...

Mugen Souls Preview

 

NIS America has yet to abandon the hardcore JRPG faithful. They have kept mostly true to the sub-genre's roots, publishing quite a few titles from talented developers like Gust and Compile Heart. The latter team has produced Mugen Souls, a game that –...

There’s a lot of that. It’s really quite funny, as the voice acting is more than competent, the writing isn’t bad, and the situations are typically amusing. The dialogue scenes still drag on a little too long, though, and as you might expect, you...

Drew reviews yet another quirky RPG. Discover how many panty shots he had to endure in his review.

Some interesting mechanics ; Sound battle system

Overly complicated ; Excessive mechanics/lack of explanation ; Dated graphics with frame rate issues ; Content may be off-putting to some

Like many anime-based games, Mugen Souls walks a very thin tightrope between creepy sexuality and quite..

Overall Mugen Souls is quite a fun game, though it is a Japanese RPG so expect seemingly endless screens of dialogue that can (thankfully) be skipped through if you don’t mind missing a few jokes. There is also a lot of explaining about exactly what...
