    Great old-school JRPG feel

    Battle Chasers hit a lot of nostalgic points for me, reminding me of my times playing the older Final Fantasy games, or other similar JRPGs from back in the day (Robotrek anyone?). The game consists of a lot of tactical choices, and a fairly streamlined skill tree system to power up your combat skills. The skill tree system doesn't lock in, allowing you to mix and match your skills and figure out the play-style you like while you play. The only complaints, and these weren't enough to knock of a star, is that the game can feel a bit grindy at times, characters who aren't in your party don't level, and if you go searching for treasure you may out-level the game making it almost too easy. Still, it was a great ride and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys old-school JRPGs.

    Too Repetitive

    I was especially excited about getting this in my hands, seeing as I was a fan of the Battle Chasers comic in the mid-90's. The game starts well enough, which a fantastic art style (expected!), and compelling characters. Over time however, the story becomes a bore - predictable and unexciting. The gameplay is engaging, with a unique combat system, but with no compelling story to drive your quest from point A to point B (it feels very very linear at times), there just isn't a reason to see what the next dungeon holds. Good enough fun for a while, but buy it on sale.

    Great JRPG, But Has Major Bugs

    While I would recommend this game to a friend (I love Joe’s art and the gameplay is awesome) it should be acknowledged that even at this point in its lifecycle the game on every platform is riddled with game breaking bugs. If you can avoid the very specific occurrences that cause these bugs, it’s great; but you won’t know it until you hit one.

    Excellent Game But Poor Optimization

    The game is excellent. Good views, great atmosphere, and old fashioned but really interesting gameplay. Especially it's a fit to handheld mode. The only disadvantage is the poor optimization. It's not a serious issue but the loading time is actually a little bit long. Hope in the future there will be a patch to fix that!

    This is a great game like the old Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy games. I have put about 50 hours in completing the game and I didn’t even beat every big boss. The battle system is addictive, and the story is based on a comic that you should read the Wikipedia page of to understand the backstory. Great game.

    Super disappointed that the comic series that this is based on was never finished but this is the next best thing. Super fun game very reminiscent of JRPGs with turn-based combat that I grew up playing. Good visuals, music, enjoyable characters and story, and the gameplay has yet to get repetitive.

    This game is a different kind of RPG and if you are a rpg fan in general than you must try this. It has a good story with dynamic characters and a unique battle system. It has a difficulty unlike any RPG iv played too lol

    Graphically the game holds up very nicely on switch. If you like games like Chrono Trigger, this will be an enjoyable adventure. The devs did a good job to build this universe with media outside the game too. I hope this game does well!

    Didn't really know what to expect going into this game other than the turn based RPG gameplay, but the game has been pretty fun. The story is interesting and the gameplay is fun. Not really much else to say about it.

    A fun traditional rpg for the Switch.

    Based off the comics this game is a traditional rpg with stylized characters but with similar gameplay to the older Final Fantasy games. Definitely worth having, the loading times could be better though, but still fun.

    Been enjoying this a lot! The dungeons are fun, art looks fantastic, and plays great on the Switch. Even though it's available on pretty much every other platform too, being able to play on the go is always a bonus!

    Solid game. Took a shot in the dark because I didn't think I would ever like Turn Base Combat games, but this game is addicting. Cool story, cool upgrades, and it runs very well on the switch.

    I don’t own this game on any other console so I cannot tell if it’s a good port but I picked it up on release date and I haven’t been able to put it down it’s an awesome game! Graphics are beautiful!

    If you like role playing games you might like this one. i didn't. too much level grinding. over all good presentation. a little too old school for me. so if you like the old school rpg's this might be for you.

    Fun game! The battle system was unique and surprisingly had a lot of depth. This game was like a mix between Diablo, final fantasy, and Chrono trigger. I would definitely recommend this game for any RPG fans.

    A fun game right in my wheelhouse. Younger gamers not used to slower paced story driven games will hate this. Turn based combat and jrpg story is fun.

    Battle chasers takes you back to old style rpg action with amazing graphics and art style if you ever read the comic they literally took the art from the pages and made it playable.
