      Not That Kind of Rhythm Game

      If you've played Akiba's Trip on PS3 or PS4, then you know what kind of hilarity to expect from Akiba's Beat. They've traded the vampire stripping for a more traditional approach, but the Akiba series charm is still front and center. The English localization team really knocked it out of the park with the script on this one, it's apologetically funny and had me cracking up before the first tutorial was even done. It's a treat to walk the busy streets of Akihabara and the surreal landscapes that make up the game's dungeons. Battles are quick and fun, and each playable character uses a unique weapon to battle.

      Mediocre JRPG

      Akiba's Beat is a JRPG that was released for both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita. It's based off of the prior games in the series. I'll refrain from spoilers, but expect to sink 40+ hours into the story of this game. It's honestly enjoyable, and not that bad, however there are much better JRPG releases that I would much rather invest my time in.

      I admit this was an impulse buy since I try to find games no one else knows of, but I have to say its a lot more fun than I thought it would be, plus it has voice actresses that I'm a fan to. One that's on tales of zestiria and Nier (Alexis Tipton) and one from Persona 5 and also Nier: Automata (Cherami Leigh)

      Its not a bad game if you like JRPG. The combat isnt bad and but dungeons can be a little repetitive. Also the story is a little corny but if you like that type of humor you should be good.

      It gets a plus for coming with a plush toy, but the game is just okay nothing Amazon. I will probably buy the Playstation Vita version.
