    The game was "unputdownable" for me, and I think it's a fine addition to any PSP owner's library.
  2. Hexyz doesn't do anything at all wrong, but it misses the mark pretty clearly on doing almost anything very well.
  3. For a game that takes as long as this one does to complete, the production value, the price and the experience, its really a no-brainer if you are an RPG player.
  4. This role-playing adventure strikes an enjoyable balance between classic and new elements, risk and reward, combat and crafting.
  5. Even if it doesn't exactly break new ground in the RPG genre, Hexyz Force plays its cards right, with a solid battle system and a pace that isn't too grating for quick portable gaming sessions.
  6. LEVEL (Czech Republic)
    JRPG with both – excellent features and frustrating moments is great for long-distance trips. Watch your battery 'cause there is no quick-save feature! [Issue#195]
  7. If you're in the mood for a good turn-based RPG and you don't mind if it doesn't take any chances, Hexyz Force may be a good fit for you.
  8. If I were forced to summarize Hexyz Force in a sentence, I think I'd go with: "Standard fare, don't expect much." It's not terrible, but it's not going to shatter any expectations.
  9. 60
    Overall, Hexyz Force is a safe effort, bringing barely anything new to the table, but it will be appealing for those who are not looking for something complicated, or those looking for a decent forty hour dual-story epic.
  10. Playstation: The Official Magazine (US)
    Although it lacks the surprises or intrigue inherent to most Sting-developed games, Hexyz Force still manages to provide a satisfying experience for on-the-go RPGers. [July 2010, p.85]
  11. Hexyz Force keeps things moving along at a brisk pace that is welcome on a portable system, but is content trotting out uninspired JRPG cliches despite being a completely serviceable game.
  12. Don't be fooled by the option to play as two different characters with different stories, as they match one another so closely that if the first run through of the game didn't put you to sleep, the second time will.
  13. For those who thrive solely off of the thrills of putting points into stats and watching numbers go up, Hexyz Force leaves little to be desired. For the rest of us, Hexyz Force has equally little to offer.

    A truly fantastic RPG. Combat and exploration are nothing new to the series, and even tired out, but this game brings it back in a great way.A truly fantastic RPG. Combat and exploration are nothing new to the series, and even tired out, but this game brings it back in a great way. Highly polished combat gives the classic set up of skills and magic, but with a fresh face. However, this game in most circumstances would only be worthy of a 7, but it does one thing staple to the RPG genre so masterfully, it earns itself a 10. This game has an incredible, deep, lovable story. Enjoy many classic cliche's done with fresh pizazz, and a heavy dose of Japanese culture. Any fan of classic jRPG's will absolutely love this one.
