    If you’re looking for jRPGs on your Vita, you’ve got great options–but Rainbow Moon isn’t one of them.

    It can be a slog, but in the game's defense, I guess, it makes no effort to hide that fact. So, if you like games that make you grind endlessly, and you want something that could literally occupy your every waking hour for a week…here you go.

    This is still a barely average game. The word "strategy" does not belong in the conversation when talking about it, as 99% of your time will be spent mauling normal enemy mobs, only to get to a boss character that can OHKO all your characters. This game is just a series of fetch quests strung together by monotonous combat.

    If you value your time, avoid this game at all costs - you can go play ten others in the time it would take you to slog through Rainbow Moon.

    Fantastic game to play on the go.

    First the negatives:
    - There is a lot of filler content in the game
    - It can get a bit boring after a few hours in the game because your options and customisations are still limited at that time, which makes the fights all rather straightforward.
    - I only found out after 50 hours of playing that you can actually skip the skill movies by pressing R1. Might not seem significant but you get annoyed if you have to watch the same animation for the 500th time.
    - Story is nothing exceptional, but that goes for most RPG's

    the positives:
    - Looks pretty good visually.
    - Hard game at times, but a very good learning curve. I like my games challenging.
    - End game content is where this game really shines. You have a lot of customisation options at that point and the fighting really becomes based on skill more than based on levelling. And the game really opens up, exploring is very rewarding at that point.

    So if you are into traditional RPG's, I'd definitely recommend this game
