Jun 9, 2016Anima is not that engaging at all because of that overreach, and it’s stressful because I really did want to enjoy this. But the games it tries to be like; titles like Nier and Dark Souls, are unforgettable, potent, important titles. I should not be forgetting almost everything about a game that aspires to that level of greatness. But in this case I did just that.

Anima: Gate of Memories Pros, in between and cons:
Good voice acting.
You can customize combat.
Lore is fascinating.
On the fly character swapping.
Decent story, but it doesn't open up until the end.
Has replay ability with NG+, but I didn't feel like going through it again because my first playthrough left a sour taste in my mouth.
The shop is located in one area.
Enemies spam projectiles even in close range.
Unbalanced bosses (there's a few exceptions.)
Some fighting sections of boss battles are too long and feel like filler (e.i it might take about 10-15 minutes to defeat certain bosses even with the best items.)
Platforming that will make you tier your f989ing hair out.
Some levels don't feel play tested.
Anima Gate of Memories is an ambitious game offering combat customization and cool stylish moves. But the unbalanced enemies and atrocious platforming really do hold it back from being greater. I hope to see more games like this from Anima Project but with all the problems this game suffered with ironed out.
In my original review, I did come off playing Nier Automata so I did hold this game to an unfair standard after hearing there's similarities between the two games.
I criticized the graphics then, which now aren't really bad for an indie game that puts more focus on combat. The game has a good variety of locations to visit: from a Resident Evil-esk mansion, to grassy plains, and snowy terrain to name a few. You'll always see something different as you progress through the game.
However, I do stick by calling the platforming atrocious and certain enemies/bosses unbalanced.
I still hope to see another Anima game from the studio that created this. A game that keeps the stylish approach to combat but also has more emphasis on enemy juggling would be awesome.… Expand
