Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception - Review

RPG Site checked out the PC ports of Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception/Mask of Truth:

Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception/Mask of Truth (Steam) Review

A few years back, Zack wrote reviews for Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth - and walked away loving both. As for myself, I ended up playing the games on my Vita just last year, and it quickly became a personal favorite of mine. When I heard the news that the series was finally returning to PC, I just had to see how the ports turned out.

Which is why it hurts to say that the ports have some rather major issues.

[...]

Honestly, if both of these main issues got fixed, the ports would be fine. Yeah, they'd still be lacking some graphical options, but I doubt the games must be that hard to run considering the minimum GPU is integrated graphics. As it stands, it's hard to recommend these ports. It's still Utawarerumono, and if my experience playing the games on Vita are anything to go by - blurry graphics probably won't ruin your experience - I still have to hope that these issues will get patched up in the coming weeks. I certainly hope they do.

Score: 6/10
