    Tokyo Ghoul:re [Call To Exist] is the rare anime cash-in that is both ambitious and chocked full of content, and one that franchise diehards can eagerly sink their teeth into and be able to take a deep, stiff drink from.

    The controls seem pretty stiff and gameplay gets repetitive fast. It has everything a brawler normally has but doesn’t bring anything unique to set itself apart.

    Tokyo Ghoul: re [Call to Exist] has some good stuff going for it: popular source material, well-designed (if uninspired) combat. But after a couple hours in, the shine of the game disappears and gives way to a repetitive and thin experience. With its steep price tag, it’s only a game for fans, and even the most hardcore might find that Ghoul simply lacks the spirit.

    To say that Tokyo Ghoul: re Call to Exist is a letdown is an understatement. This is a title poised to irritate fans, befuddle neophytes and generally just waste the time for everyone involved. This is a true throwback to ye olde days of bad cash ins. As one ages, nostalgia becomes a comfortable past time. Not in this case, though. Not in this case.

    Bandai namco did it again, they always get to impress us with an anime based video game and tokyo ghoul is no exception. This is definitely a must buy

    Given the sparse available reviews for this game available, I thought I'd leave a review for it in the hopes of providing insight prior toGiven the sparse available reviews for this game available, I thought I'd leave a review for it in the hopes of providing insight prior to purchase. I, myself, took the leap at the full RRP of £44.99. Do I regret it? I don't think I do, no, but it's not a confident no - let me explain.

    If you've watched any game play videos or reviews on YouTube of this game, you'll likely know what to expect. It's unapologetically the video game equivalent of a B-movie.

    Something that I was pleasantly suprirsed with were the graphics. All prior reviews I'd read had compared them to those seen in the PS2-era, and whilst most of the enviroments are fairly drab and feel completely unorganic, the characters are nicely rendered and the main cast all are accurately recreated with care.

    The gameplay itself is you standard Bandai-Namco anime/game tie in - think Dynasty Warriors - that has its own endearing charm. It's not a gameplay loop that you'll want to, or be able to dedicate endless hours on due to the repetitive nature and whilst the mobs are easily dispatched fodder, the bosses are often suprisingly difficult and can become very quickly lethal if not given full attention.

    The music and soundtrack in the game is great, however the cutscenes in game are simple images providing a visual backdrop alongside the dialogue to aid in disgesting the story. This certainly is NOT the best way to experience the story for anyone who's had the pleasure to experience the manga (and to a lesser extent the anime) but it does a servicable job to include the bare essentials necessary to providing context to the chaos.

    The character creator is as bad as you've heard it is AT FIRST, but there is plenty to unlock, including multiple weapons, firearms, outfits, hairstyles and more, aswell as having a perk system that allows you to unlock perks (e.g, +25 damage, +10% health) and assign them to your weapons to give the entire creation system a measure of depth.

    The multiplayer is active, however its a rather shallow affair and should not be a major factor in your decision to purchase.

    Overall, it's 7/10 game and definitely one for the fans of the series. It has just enough charm and character in its gameplay mechanics and storyline to warrant a purchase, but it's worth waiting for a sale to avoid disappointment. £20-£25 feels about right for this game and providing one approaches it knowing that it's definately not a AAA title, some fun and enjoyment can be had with it, much akin to Dynasty Warriors, Attack On Titan (Wings of Freedom/2) and Berserk the game.

    Again, Bandai are not caring what they produce anymore, there's absolutely no quality control/assurance with any of their games any longer.Again, Bandai are not caring what they produce anymore, there's absolutely no quality control/assurance with any of their games any longer.
    The fact that anyone can justify its $60 and have Bandai deliver this piss poor quality of a game is ridiculous.
    The animation are clunky, the fighting is lazily programmed as most of the time you're facing the direct opposite direction from your enemies and the hit detection is very inconsistent, the cutscenes are ridiculous as there's no voice acting and also have I mentioned that the animation look like crap??

    This game is an insult to the manga/anime.

    Refund it and stay away from this game.

    I’d recommend avoiding this game.

    I’m a fan of Tokyo Ghoul and was craving actually playing a game based in this world. However it’s not worth it at all. Very poor level design and unimpressive environments. The AI is somewhat disastrous with NPC’s unable to navigate simple surroundings, running into walls, standing in fire, running backwards and forwards before finally deciding on a direction to run. Character models are decent enough for the most part with some nice physics simulations on certain characters hair and Kagune. I will say the actual use of the Kagune is disappointing, Kaneki only has about a 3-4 hit rinse and repeat combo, there are no combos at all in this game, you mash square and that’s all you get for a chained attack, triangle and circle function as special attacks that do a single repeated move, also a ranged attack that again is just the same animation each time. I have played other characters (including Quinx and Investigators) and they all revolve around this same attack set up. This leaves the combat incredibly bare bones so there’s little enjoyment to be had with the actual combat itself, hit boxes are incredibly inconsistent and the thrill of actually getting to use the weapons of this universe is lost within half an hour once I realised the lack of depth. I’d mention the co-op/survival modes where you can create your own character but the character creator is even more shallow than the combat and it just copies all the Story Levels with (as far as I’m aware) no unique content.

    There is a story mode on offer here as well, following Kaneki’s journey, they use story boards to relay the majority of the story with some minimal effort cutscenes thrown in, I would elaborate but it’s a waste of mine and your time if you’re reading this. If you love Tokyo ghoul, resist the purchase, I made an impulse buy after disregarding all the reviews I read and I deeply regret the money I spent. Play the free mobile games or attempt to borrow this for free if you really want to see what the game is like for yourself, but as a fan of the series, I’d recommend you stay far away and just indulge in another fandom or Japanese game that’s actually worth your time and money.
