    The interesting premise of accepting missions by possessing villagers' bodies is weighed down by a very average presentation and a game design that is pretty basic. [Jan 2002, p.83]
  2. Tsugunai: Atonement is another interesting import conversion brought over to the North American market from the Land of the Rising Sun.
  3. It isn’t a bad game; it’s just not exceptionally good, either.
  4. Clever, but not nearly clever-enough to overcome the dull and boring predictability "Tsugunai" [exudes] as it unfolds at a maddenigly slow pace.
  5. Occasionally you'll get the chance to move on and actually fight monsters, but it seems like forever and a day in between those moments.

    Astonishingly average. Tsugunai scores for hosting some original ideas…but then compensates with truly boring presentation.

    It’s awesome that you can block enemy attacks with timed button presses…but not when you fight the same boring enemies over and over! [Feb 2002, p.114]
  8. A fun enough concept but lacks a certain next-gen sparkle.

Though I have found some of the scenes a bit boring, pound for pound the amount of play time has been great. Full Review »
