REVIEW: ‘Fairy Tail’ a Nearly Perfect RPG but Falls a Little Short

Hiro Mashima’s best-selling manga and anime series, Fairy Tail, is now the latest action-role-playing game developed by GUST Studios and released by Koei Tecmo for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and the PC. The highly anticipated JRPG takes players on a magical adventure as they play through the series’s most popular and beloved storylines. Allowing players to experience and re-live exciting episodes as their favorite characters.

From dark wizards and demons to dragons and flying talking cats players find it all as they set out on a magical journey in the land of Fiore. In the game, players follow the adventures of Fairy Tail mages, Natsu Dragneel and Lucy Heartfilia, as well as other lively members of the Fairy Tail mage guild, on a  thrilling quest packed with adventure.



Overall, Fairy Tail isn’t a perfect JRPG but it comes pretty close! Every part of Fairy Tail is beautifully designed and well thought out. While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the combat system at first, I did see the appeal and fun challenge the turn-base combat system brings to this game. I especially loved how the developers incorporated in key elements from the franchise such as teamwork and comradery into the game.
Long-time fans especially will enjoy the experience to relive stories previously told in the manga and anime. In addition to being able to able to enjoy never before seen story and quest elements.
And while I think this game will be well received by long-time fans, it is also very approachable and welcoming to newcomers too.

Score: 9.5/10
