    All together Utawarerumono is a lengthy game, and while I usually advocate for games to be shorter, in the particular case of this series, I do think the narrative justifies the length and experience that it's looking to share.

    Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen isn't a flawless VN/SRPG hybrid, but it is an enjoyable one that starts off a grandiose tale I'm all the more ready to dive further into.

    An interesting tactical RPG that brings us the origins from this series' story and completes it with a variety of characters with high charisma in a mix of visual novel sequences and fighting scenarios.

    Prelude to the Fallen is a solid introduction to the Utawarerumono universe so if simple SRPG battles and visual novels appeal to you then this is one game that you'll definitely want to play.

    Utawarerumono:Prelude to the Fallen is an excellent remake of the visual novel that started a much loved saga in Japanese territory. This remake is an excellent opportunity for many curious people to learn about the game, never officially localized in any western language until now.

    Between a visual novel and a strategic game, Utawarerumono: prelude to the Fallen crosses the boundaries of the oriental market to capture the hearts of western players with a well packed game.

    Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen is graced by a compelling plot, but everything else is quite forgettable in this by-the-numbers visual novel.

    Due to the rather tough narrative style in "Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen" not every player will like the game. Also we found theDue to the rather tough narrative style in "Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen" not every player will like the game. Also we found the introduction very exhausting and could reward ourselves for the tenacity nevertheless with the quite interesting fights. Above all we liked the comfortable playing style and the possibility to rewind the last action in the fights. Concerning graphics and sound we get rather average and no highlights. Those who would like to experience a different game on the PlayStation 4 should take a look at "Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen".
