    SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions blends the challenge of olden JRPG days with the aesthetic refinement of modern gaming to create a tantilizing final product. Difficulty waivers back and forth in odd ways, but the narrative and combat keep everything feeling engaging and enjoyable.

    At times brutally difficult, and others frustratingly random, SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions takes some big risks to ensure it's highly satisfying and incredibly rewarding to play through.

    What SaGa Scarlet Grace Ambitions lacks in its plot, it more than makes up for in its difficult and complex battle system. Make no mistake, this is a hardcore RPG. You’ll be retrying battles over and over just to barely scrape by, and while it can be too difficult at times, the combat system is still a blast the whole way through.

    If you're looking for an unconventional and rewarding RPG then SaGa: Scarlet Grace - Ambitions is a must-play. However, those who merely want to enjoy the same old tried and true formulas should definitely look elsewhere.

    Even if its limitations are obvious considering its handheld origin, core systems like the combat and other aspects like the soundtrack are fantastic. If you can forgive these minor problems, you’ll find a great RPG.

    A decent step forward for the SaGa Series that maintains the familiar features (replayabillity, high challenge etc.) of the franchise. However, the intense grinding will probably discourage even some of the most hardcore JRPG fans.

    Beautiful art, a rousing soundtrack and an appealing combat system can’t compensate for the game’s weaknesses: poor tutorials, unintuitive mechanics, and two-dimensional characters. Fans of the series and old-school JRPG nostalgics may overlook its flaws and endure it all with a smile - I couldn’t.
