    Imageepoch's Last Game May be Their Best!

    |

    Posted .

    I've loved this company for a long time. If you've played Luminous Arc 1 or 2, then you have an idea of what you're in for as Stella Glow is the spiritual successor to them. The story is good; while it plays of the usual tropes, it does a good job of sucking you in. Gameplay is solid; there aren't any gimmicky timing systems or QTEs here, just solid SRPG gameplay. The music is great, really serves to envoke the emotions each scene should, and I'm beyond impressed with how well done the voice acting is, especially for a 3DS game. It's too bad that this title may well have been able to save Imageepoch from bankruptcy but came too late. If you have a 3DS and loved older SRPGs, this is a must buy!

    First of all, this is a nice game, but since Atlus games tend to lose value quickly, you should not buy it at $50. I bought it at $24 with GCU and I feel it's well worth it. This is a strategy game, but not like Fire Emblem or Advance Wars. It is more of a "Final Fantasy Tactic Advance" type. The graphics are nice and cute. I love the soundtrack. The difficulty is quite adaptable to me (I am a casual gamer). I haven't put much time in it yet, but it looks promising. Till this day, I have no idea what to use the cloth in the launch bundle on, so I put it back inside the box. My little sister love the key chain however.

    Stylin on Final Fantasy Tactics

    The game looks pretty great and has tons of characters and skills to mess around with. The customization system also allows you to choose how each characters overall playstyle varies by giving status effects, attack boosts, evasion, etc making for a well rounded way to control your party. The story and characters are overall very fun, but the game uses a system where each chapter you have a limited amount of times to talk to everyone, meaning if you want to get all the content from everyone you must play the game atleast twice which I find rather annoying. The combat was fun enough though and the game not painfully long so I may consider replaying it some time in the future. If you are a fan of tactics rpgs and anime style storys this is a great choice to grab.

    Cliched story with solid gameplay

    Stella Glow starts off with a paint by numbers setup. A hero with amnesia, a childhood friend with a secret power and a witch that's out to destroy the world starting with their small village. Thankfully the plot picks up after the initial setup and the characters are well written and memorable. As for the gameplay, the game has you control up to 7 units per map on a turn based strategy grid. Each character has their own specialties and you need to learn how to use them to their maximum potential. Visually the game has a bright and colorful art style but may be too cute for some. If you're looking for a fun strategy RPG or an alternative to Fire Emblem you should give this game a try.

    Among the best RPGs available for the 3DS!

    There are so many excellent RPGs that you can play on the 3DS, with a number of them courtesy of the good people at Atlus. They have delivered another gem with strategy RPG Stella Glow. This game does everything so well. By this I mean a great story, characters, gameplay, and music. Stella Glow is an extremely satisfying total package of RPG goodness. I was expecting it to be good, but it turned out to be magnificent. The game is a little hard to come by now, but if you can find it for an acceptable price, I highly recommend that you scoop this one up, especially if you are an RPG junkie like I am.

    Best jRPG in awhile.

    I played this right after finishing up Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Stella Glow has gone completely under the radar. This game is one of the best jRPG's I've played in a long time. The story is great, the battle system is great (strategy rpg), the character development is great. It's like Fire Emblem on steroids, it does everything better. The only problem I have is that the battles are a little slow. It's not painfully slow, but compared to skipping all of the animations by holding down a single button in Fire Emblem, it's slow. Other than that, no complaints at all, AMAZING GAME.

    Solid SRPG

    Posted .

    Stella Glow is a solid strategy RPG that combines a lot of gameplay mechanics from other games that I enjoy. Combat is in isometric view with things like turn order, facing, skills, and terrain type/terrain height coming in to play. There is no fast forward button though, which can make battles seem slow. Out of combat, there is a time management system where you manage time spent between increasing bonds with teammates, exploring for items, or doing jobs for money. The story is also great with many characters but it will take an hour or so before it gets rolling. A nice addition to a gamer's library if they enjoy a good story and SRPG combat.

    A fun, bittersweet RPG

    As the last game from a niche and somewhat infamous JRPG studio, there is a gentle bittersweet tone to this game. It's extremely well polished and presented while still being fun to play through. An awesome soundtrack compliments the cute visuals and it doesn't hurt that it's composed by the same guy who did Chrono Trigger either! All in all, this is a wonderful strategy RPG ala Fire Emblem (with social links between party members to boot!) I can't recommend it enough :D

    This game flies under the radar amidst an ocean of JRPGs already crowding the 3DS library. But it is an absolute stand-out if you give it a chance to shine. The gameplay is simple but adequately challenging. The story is compelling and will keep you from putting your 3DS down. This is the first game in a long time that kept me glued to it like a great book. Expect 40+ hours of gaming content. Great game.

    Really Fun JRPG

    I will be honest I bought this to fix my craving for SRPG before Fire emblem fates came out, and I am so glad I did. Stella glow is very fun story and character driven game, the gameplay is simple enough and well explained anyone can pick up and play. There is also new game + for those who want more out of it.

    Solid JRPG from Imageepoch

    Posted .

    In a year that was filled with disappointing JRPG releases, this was arguably the best SJRPG I finished last year. Imageepoch released Stella Glow despite being in financial turmoil and may very likely be their last game ever. It plays a lot like the old Luminous Arc games, good story, decent characters, solid tactical mechanics, although the game is a little too much on the easy side, and the fanservice is a bit unnecessary. If you're a big fan of the Luminous Arc games, this is a no-brainer purchase.

    Fire Emblem-esque

    It's a tactical RPG much like you'd see in Fire Emblem(characters retreat from battle rather than die permanently, though.) Your roster of characters grows throughout the game and by leveling up and talking to them you can unlock new moves for them. The story's not too bad, but there can be some rather irritating dialogue that goes on for a long time. I think it's a decent game that's been overlooked by a lot of people. Got it after looking into it and I'm satisfied with the experience.

    Fun Strategy RPG for 3DS

    Stella Glow is a fun strategy J-RPG for the 3DS. The game is from the same people that created the Luminous Arc series. Stella Glow won't be an instant classic, but its definitely worth the time spent with a good story, good music, and hours of game play. The music is from Yasunori Mitsuda, who did Chrono Trigger music, so its definitely worth a listen for sure. All in all I recommend this game for your 3DS collection.

    Love this turn based rpg

    Stella Glow is a beautiful anime style turn based RPG. I have put 24 hours into it so far. It has a lot of story and talking, and also strategy of building up certain characters and choosing who to put on the field. Alto is the main character along with 4 witches coming together to defeat the witch of destruction. There are some innuendos, but nothing too forward.

    Great game, some launch editions still available

    First, like the title says, I ordered this online not long ago to be shipped to me, and received the launch edition with the extra content. Just a headsup that it is still possible they still have some launch editions in stock. Game itself is great, launch edition is even better, although the longbox style cardboard packaging is pretty unwieldy for most shelves.

    This is an awesome little game that is very underrated. The story is nothing new, but it is told very well. There is quite a bit of cut-scene/talking but it only adds to the charm of this little gem. I'm about 20 hours in and I cannot put it down. If you enjoy a good story and grid based tactical battles, I would highly recommend this game. Such a great concept and very nicely executed.

    Underrated Gem

    I feel like this game got lost in the shuffle with all of the other RPG's that came out. The cast of characters are really enjoyable, the battle system is quite unique and the story is pretty good. I also thought the witch tuning was a very unique thing to make this game different then any other RPG out there.

    Fun strategy game

    I recently had a renewed interest in strategy RPGs after playing Fire Emblem Fates, and while different, this game didn't disappoint. My only real complaint is the way you move on some levels is really disorienting at first, but I got used to it. Also if you buy the special edition/launch edition/whatever, it comes with a cute pig keychain! :D

    Fun game with great music

    I was really looking forward to this game and it did not disappoint. An SRPG that takes place in a world where only witches are able to sing. The music is great and the witches' singing is beautiful in its original Japanese, although the rest of the voice acting is in English, it just makes the singing more mystical.
