    An Upbeat, Fulfilling Action RPG

    Legendary game designer Koichi Ishii (creator of the Square's Mana series) has been exploring two major concepts throughout most of his career: our relationship with nature, and the importance of community. With Ever Oasis, Ishii's development team has created a game that brings those two concepts front-and-center. In Ever Oasis, players take on the role of the chief of the last surviving Oasis in desert devastated by Chaos. You journey out into the wilderness to explore dungeons, collect crafting materials, bash monsters, and solve puzzles using the different skills of your character and his/her various party members. These teammates are drawn from the citizenry of your Oasis home; and when you're not out adventuring, its your task to maintain the happiness and well being of everyone who lives there. A big, happy population means new shops, new crafting recipes, a larger HP bar, and fatter wallet. The desert is a harsh place, but by fostering community, you can beat the chaos back. Ever oasis is a positive, upbeat action RPG that mixes the adventuring of Zelda with the lite sim elements of Animal Crossing. It's a must play for those looking for a game that's equal parts addictive and heartwarming.

    Zelda and Secret of Mana meet world building

    Awesome game! Created by the maker of Secret of Mana this game is a breath of fresh air in the action/rpgs market. It is a hidden gem that so many are going. To overlook because of the lack of marketing for it..but in ten years time will be hard to find and worth a bundle. In the game you have your typical RPG story of darkness overtaking the land... but rather then jus fight to save you must start a desert oasis town as a beakan of hope. The game shines in that while you have dungeons and monsters to fight in the outside world you have a city to grow and manage. You recruit new villagers to live and open shops in your village. You manage the city and make money. Your villagers just don't do that however. Some of them will end up being companions in your adventures and will help you as you fight through the world and look for supplies etc. for the growth of your Oasis. Fighting is action based (think ZELDA) I still am only scratching the surface of the game but I highly suggest it to fans of action rpgs.

    A fun game

    The game is pretty simple as far as plot and gameplay goes. You lead an oasis village in the middle of a desert, expanding it against the ever looming "Chaos" and monsters in the desert. In your village, you help citizens, grow crops, craft items. Out in the desert, you fight monsters and solve dungeon puzzles. All of these aspects individually are simplified compared to others ( such as harvest moon, animal crossing, or legend of zelda titles ) But when combined together, we have here a wonderful adventure that I can easily sink hours of time into. The visuals are appealing, the gameplay is fluid, and the story is cute. All in all, I would say a must have for anyone a fan of the farming/adventuring type of gamers, and at least a good start for those looking to try out the genre.

    A Diamond in the rough

    Ever Oasis is an exploratory action RPG overflowing with charm. The bright and cheery visuals stand in contrast to a somewhat dire narrative where you, along with the help of a water spirit named Esna, work to create the last Oasis, a safe place and a beacon of hope for the residents of the desert who have nowhere else to go. The combat is fun and engaging, if a bit simple, with plenty of room to customize with new weapon types and the abilities associated with them. The building of the oasis is so satisfying as well, lining up the shops and decorations to encourage the most sales and keep your residents happy. I've had a blast with this game and would highly recommend it if you're looking for a cute action RPG with management elements.

    Underrated Action RPG

    This is a game that in 5 years will show up on "Most underrated 3DS games" The game is a mix of action RPG, dungeon crawling, and city building. Neither aspect is particularly deep but together they make an addicting game. What makes things so much fun is that every town member is a playable character. While each character isn't amazingly memorable they all do have a series of side quests that tell a short story about the character. The tone of this game is a little weird because it's very bright colorful and cheerful, but a lot of the side stories and even the main story are very somber and a little bit sad. Don't pass this one up!

    Ever Oasis reminds me of a cross between Animal Crossing and the Zelda games from the Nintendo 64 days. The characters animations, styles, and battle mechanics makes me feel like I am playing Ocarina of Time which of course brings back many fond memories. The game play itself is very rewarding and keeps me coming back for more. I find it fun running around making sure everyone in the Oasis is taken care of while doing quests to get more people to move in. Definitely have lost track of time playing this game. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to add some variety to their 3DS collection.

    Everything about this game got me excited that I blew the dust off my 3ds and started playing full nights cuz I love this game! Gameplay is good and story is interesting. It can get repetitive with managing your oasis, but the game helps out later on with allies who made things easier to manage. I wanted to give it a 5 stars but being a new IP, alot things can be fix like character development, story progression, and overall the open world. But if you need a great title this summer for your 3ds, look no further.

    The Mana series melds with Animal Crossing

    Color me surprised - very surprised. I had decently high expectations for Ever Oasis, but it's managed to surpass them in the 10 hours I've put into the game so far. The controls are tight, the gameplay brisk and challenging, and the music and world charming. Think of it as an action-RPG with town creation elements. Its another diamond put out by Nintendo, and if you have any interest in games like the Mana series, Animal Crossing or Fantasy Life, you should definitely check out.
