Cosmic Star Heroine - Review @ CGMagazine

CGMagazine has reviewed the retro J-RPG Cosmic Star Heroine:

Cosmic Star Heroine Review – Fun for Retro RPG Fans

Evaluation by comparison is one of the most straightforward strategies a critic can employ. It’s also one of the least nuanced. I say this knowing full well that I often do it myself, so I’m not pointing any fingers here; there are only so many ways to approach reviewing a video game, after all. I preface my critique of Cosmic Star Heroine, a retro-styled JRPG styled after a particular pair of SNES and Genesis classics, with this statement because it doesn’t simply draw inspiration from those games—it explicitly demands to be compared to them.


The next Phantasy Star this is not, but Cosmic Star Heroine is still a worthwhile detour for the retro-inclined RPG fan.

Score: 7.5/10
