The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics Review

For readers who do not know what Dark Crystal is, it was originally a film made by the legendary Jim Henson in 1982. It released in an era where puppet fantasy films were big, films like Labyrinth starring David Bowie and Never Ending Story were very popular. I for one, remember watching them all as a kid and loving them dearly.

This tactical RPG closely follows the new Netflix series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, which is a prequel to the aforementioned Jim Henson Movie. The new series still used puppets but also used CG, it was very well received by the general populace and long time fans alike. The fact this game follows the Netflix series so closely is both a blessing and a curse.

Overall

While I enjoyed my time with The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, I felt it was a bit too simplistic. Especially in comparison to games like Disgaea, which in my opinion is the leading game in this genre. This game is enjoyable, especially later on where more tactical options are unlocked. It is pleasing on the eyes, ears and it does its source material justice. However, I do wish more was done to help new players and players who have not watched the Netflix series. They may feel a bit lost with some of the story details.

Score: 7/10
