    I hope it’s a game that others embrace as a stepping stone towards understanding a history and culture that too many are too eager to dismiss as “weird” or different.

    God Wars Future Past is an impressive throwback to possibly the best era for turn-based strategy RPGs. Long-time fans of the genre will love every second they spend fighting off dastardly beasts while modern gamers may wonder how this kind of game could be fun.

    God Wars: Future Past is a game that should be played by anyone who craves a great SRPG that tests your skills and knowledge of the genre.

    God Wars: Future Past is certainly a JRPG from another time, when the tactical genre was a mainstay on the Playstation 2 (and even has the aesthetics to match). If you've been craving another tactical title in your life, God Wars is a pretty safe choice.

    If complex, entertaining battles float your boat, and you can tolerate the lack of diversions or deviations, then you’ll be in your nostalgic element with God Wars: Future Past.

    Ultimately, while it's a little bit disappointing to see Kadokawa go with such a "safe" design for its return to the tactical RPG battlefield, there's enough in God Wars: Future Past's narrative and atmosphere to recommend it to someone on the lookout for a new Tactics-style title.

    God Wars has a surprisingly cohesive job and skill system under the hood. However, the rest of the game falls short in too many places to make it an easy recommendation in the genre. If you can't get enough tactical RPGs, God Wars can be worth checking out but it's not a stand-out in the genre.

    This is the first game I play through twice. Not by choice though...I was completing Chapter 3 and the whole game crashed and my saved gamesThis is the first game I play through twice. Not by choice though...I was completing Chapter 3 and the whole game crashed and my saved games were corrupted! I actually started again because I thought the game was worth it. This time I saved the game in the cloud as well every night, so that even if it get corrupted, I have a copy. This game is Tactics...no doubt, but I like the story and the Mythology. The second time around, I used the AI feature to level grind my Characters, but turned it off when doing the story. That Feature helps, but U find it hard to turn it off. you have to catch your character right before the AI moves it.... not that easy. I wish there was a menu screen to turn it off and on. Expand

    Definitely way better than Kadokawa Games' previous tactical RPG, Natural Doctrine. Ignore most of the negative scores. I was at firstDefinitely way better than Kadokawa Games' previous tactical RPG, Natural Doctrine. Ignore most of the negative scores. I was at first skeptical towards this game but I was pleasently surprised. While I agree that most of the game's aspects were copied from other games, they aren't badly executed like you would you think. And besides, the only RPG that blatantly copies from other games with no original ideas is Akiba's Beat. Expand

    An extremely cheaply made and disappointing game. There is a strange delay on cursor movements that can completely destroy game feel, theAn extremely cheaply made and disappointing game. There is a strange delay on cursor movements that can completely destroy game feel, the graphics are far too zoomed out in the Vita version for you to see (or read) most things, the storyline is your typical anime love story, and the voice acting is dire. This games only real claim to glory is that it copies several aspects from better games from years before, though not very well. Expand
