    I did not enjoy playing Hoshigami: Remix. I did not find it fun. I found it irritating, monotonous, and cruel.
  2. Some will love it, and others will despise it. More likely than not, your own appreciation of this title will come down to your fanaticism regarding the genre.
  3. It's not exactly the new face of tactics RPGs, but as a modern face lift on a classic it's worth a second look.
  4. Any gluttons for punishment or those with an open mind for SRPGs should enjoy it. [July 2007, p.65]

    Hoshigami Remix isn’t a game we’d recommend for too many players. It can be difficult, complicated, and relatively uninspired when it comes to the overall out-of-battle experience.
  6. Compared to your standard strategy-RPG, Hoshigami Remix is hard-core complex. [Aug 2007, p.89]

    It's hard not to be cynical about a game like Hoshigami. It tries so hard to be ignored in so many aspects of its design that it's a quest just to find the game's heart.

    A satisfying role-playing experience, as long as you know what you're getting yourself into. Hardcore players may actually lament the slight ease in difficulty and the fact that the game doesn't give them the character development freedom it really should. But as far as portable RPGs go, you could do a lot worse than Hoshigami.
  9. Hoshigami is an overcooked hodgepodge that's too unwieldy for strategy RPG newcomers and too imbalanced for experts.

    The new content is a mixed bag and doesn't really do enough to make this version worth your time. There are some cool features the Wi-Fi item trading, for example but ultimately, Hoshigami Remix plays like a port rather than an update. And with no quicksave option during battles, it doesn't lend itself to "portable" gaming where the ability to turn a game on and off quickly is a must.
  11. Far too hard at the beginning, even on Easy mode, and all poorly explained. One for the only the hardiest strategy fans. [Sept 2007, p.63]
  12. Just about every other tactics game is better than this game. Stay away.
  13. These miniscule improvements tacked onto a broken game are like repairing a wrecked car with duct tape.

    The game is exactly what I was looking for in terms of the type and style of gameplay - but it is a port. It is Not a DS-style remake. BuyThe game is exactly what I was looking for in terms of the type and style of gameplay - but it is a port. It is Not a DS-style remake. Buy this game because it's worth it but expect the PS1 experience exactly and be sure to avoid it if you played Gungnir. Gungnir is the opposite of this game because this game Punishes you for moving your units. Full Review »

Some of the playfields are muddy, and since there are so many units on the screen, battles tend to drag out much longer than they need to be. Also, the wildly uneven difficulty and seriously cheap enemy attacks (enemy archers can shoot MORE THAN HALFWAY across the field) add to the monotony. The openin sequence is pretty though.
