    While it has some obvious technical problems, they don’t diminish the fact that Shadow Sun is one of the finest RPGs you’ll get the chance to play.

    Ossian Studios has created a world that feels like it has always been there, with its lore and world constructed with love. Add exciting combat and hours of quests, and The Shadow Sun is a genuine iOS RPG classic. [Issue 1, February 2014]

    This is a full-fledged RPG that you can take with you, just in case you want to escape to another world and become an epic badass.

    With a compelling story, plenty of content, and a character customization system that works, Shadow Sun succeeds in its goal as a Western RPG. I only hope that trend continues and we see future outings.

    The Shadow Sun is a bit awkward to play and needs some polishing, but look beyond that and it’s actually an incredibly competent action-RPG.
