    As of today, I've never played a turn-based strategy RPG like Rondo of Sword. The game is very crude, lacking in some important ways (hidden stats and abilities, little to no information about skills...), the plot isn't that good and most of the characters turns into empty shells as the story advances, but it is unique in a well estabilished genre. Thoughtful strategies (the Route ManeuverAs of today, I've never played a turn-based strategy RPG like Rondo of Sword.

  1. Ah, battle...for it is here that the true potential of this title shines brightest. [Apr 2008, p.69]
  2. The triumphs may be sweet, but the aggravations have them outnumbered. [May 2008, p.90]
  3. With average graphics, adequate story, standard music and decent battles you truly end up with an average, run-of-the-mill game. Is it worth its selling price? That comes down to how bored you are.
