Reborn and deeper than ever, the game enables players to immerse themselves in the world and intrigue of Tactics Ogre like never before. The Valerian Isles, jewels of the Obero Sea. Long a center of naval commerce, the people of the isles struggled throughout history for dominion over her shores. Finally there rose a man to put an end to this conflict: Dorgalua Oberyth. But history would know him as the "Dynast-King." King Dorgalua strove to stamp out the hatred among the people of the isles, and for fully half a century, Valeria knew prosperity. Yet upon the king's death, civil war erupted anew as three factions vied for control: the Bakram, who comprised much of Valeria's nobility; the Galgastani, whose people made up the majority of the isles' population; and the Walister, who numbered but few. The isles were soon divided between the Bakram and Galgastani, and an uneasy peace settled across the land. Yet none believed the calm would last...… Expand

Nov 27, 2022While I missed it back then, Tactics Ogre was, by all accounts, a pinnacle of its genre when it first debuted. The game has aged well, especially with Tactics Ogre: Reborn's enhancements, and remains an incredibly engrossing, absorbing game with nearly unmatched storytelling and gameplay. Tactics Ogre: Reborn is a masterful remaster of a game that was already a masterpiece. It shouldn't be missed.
Mar 15, 2023Overall, Tactics Ogre: Reborn is a fantastic game! As a fan that has played all three it’s hard to say which version I like best. I like the system changes made in Tactics Ogre: Reborn, simplifying removing skill points from the game and entirely relying on magic points in fights makes a lot more sense. The biggest problem with this version is removing random encounters from the game. While I understand the choice, they could have just added the level cap and possibly kept random encounters — which is something I enjoyed doing in other tactical RPGs such as Final Fantasy Tactics. Overall, I really enjoyed my time in Tactics Ogre: Reborn and look forward to many more hours with the game.
Nov 10, 2022Square Enix, which usually makes discreet holes in the water with remasters, has managed to significantly improve an RPG that was already a masterpiece of its own. If only he had had more courage, and had put his hand to the slightly spartan pixelart, Tactics Ogre: Reborn would have been perfect, but all in all we also understand the desire to preserve a certain level of nostalgia. It is officially the best turn-based strategy you can play: if you love the genre, and you are not afraid of the English texts, you absolutely have to make it yours.
Nov 10, 2022Tactics Ogre Reborn is not perfect but it is a very wise re-release. It's not uncommon to see re-releases that disappoint by being simplistic or disrespecting the original creative vision by changing too much, but in this case we're talking about a release that avoids falling into either of these holes. Instead we have a title that succeeds by delivering the definitive version of a tactical RPG that deserves to be played by more people.
Nov 29, 2022Reborn is by far the best version of Tactics Ogre. Adding many much-needed quality-of-life improvements and removing some of the more tedious mechanics have completely turned Tactics Ogre into a very enjoyable experience, despite its difficulty. In between the tough fights, a great story unfolds that you really learn to appreciate after several hours into the game. Above all that, Tactics Ogre: Reborn proves that the game that established an entire genre remains relevant no matter how much time has passed since its original release.
Dec 7, 2022For the most part, Tactic Ogre: Reborn is a good game. Heck, it's a great game. But my run took me headfirst into what feels like the cheapest and most unfair change of mechanics that I can remember in my entire personal gaming history. The entire playing experience was spoiled as a result. With the review finished, I am now deleting this game from my hard drive and never returning. I feel betrayed by a terrible design choice and look at the dozens of hours to get to this point as a waste of my time.
Nov 10, 2022Tactics Ogre: Reborn is a very good remaster of an absolute classic. So many lines in-game are raw and palpable and feel like utter poetry, leaving me perplexed at how they could be written by another human. Re-recorded tracks add to the grim but boisterous realities of the universe’s war. Plenty of granular investment and min-maxing is on offer to create a timeless and incredibly realised tactical combat experience. However, I can’t help but sometimes want more from its vague storytelling and opportunities for more quality-of-life improvements. Concessions absolutely could’ve been made for more difficulty and saving options, doing away with the feeling of hitting roadblocks. Still, this is a genre experience that’s as true as they come. Tactics Ogre has once more cemented itself as one of the tactics giants, and a bloody momentous one at that.

And they did one of the best jobs I've ever seen. This is not a simple port by any stretch of the imagination. I have no issue with the price as they did a lot of work to the game, and honestly its almost a whole new experience. I would love to see them do the same with Final Fantasy tactics.… Expand
Nov 13, 2022Really loved this series and glad Square Enix port the PSP version. Lot of the class system is reworked and it really make the game lessReally loved this series and glad Square Enix port the PSP version. Lot of the class system is reworked and it really make the game less grindy. You can also still use the auto function, really helpful when you're entering the training mode. While I prefer the old Japanese voice actor for Sega Saturn for Lanselot Tartaros, the other voice actor for the other character is pretty good.
Can't wait to spend hunded hours in this game again! I'm still around 17 hour at the moment.… Expand
Jan 26, 2023The best Tactics game ever made.
I hope this is a new start and more Tactics Ogre game are on the way....

Por mais, que o jogo seja exatamente a mesma mecânica e a mesma ideia do lançado no PSP, porém menus, gráficos melhorados e a jogabilidade em si, valem a pena em relação a essa obra de arte. Toda franquia de Ogre Battle é um deleite para amantes do estilo tático dos RPGs. A história do Let us Cling Together é uma das melhores existentes e reviver essa narrativa na nova geração torna o coração do jogador nostálgico mais quente.… Expand

Menus could use some improvement, but other than that it plays great
I don't understand why some have an issue with the price part considering the voice acting, rerecorded score, and general gameplay polishing over the prior version. This is not a simple port, obviously the team who worked on this cared deeply about the game
And unlike some other 'great for their time' classics, Tactics Ogre holds up to its contemporaries today… Expand
May 20, 20238.8/10.
I am an idiot because this is my first Tactics Ogre game. I should not have missed this series in the past and should have played8.8/10.
I am an idiot because this is my first Tactics Ogre game. I should not have missed this series in the past and should have played this already. So I'm grateful for this re-release but also unfortunately that means I can't compare it to previous releases.
I love the visuals and art style. The game play is really satisfying. I really enjoyed taking my time and planning my moves. The story and characters are good with plenty of twists and drama. Loved the setting, world and lore. Sound track is great. Plenty of content here too.
There are a few issues though. There is a level cap which I'm guessing is to stop you getting over powered but it's too restrictive. I wanted to try everything this game had to offer but some of the side stuff just felt like a dull grind. There is an uneven difficulty incline. Sometimes you breeze through a bunch of battles and then there's an occasional difficulty spike.
Tactics Ogre is getting pretty old now but still leaves the majority of modern games in it's dust. If you have enjoyed games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Fire Emblem then this should be on your games to play next list. So glad I finally played it. Tactics Ogre: Reborn is pretty damn great.
Jan 31, 2023I’d say game is unfinished. Design decisions (this game specifically) that reduce or remove fun. The last boss must not have been beta testedI’d say game is unfinished. Design decisions (this game specifically) that reduce or remove fun. The last boss must not have been beta tested as it’s neigh impossible. I’m a veteran to the genre and I found I had little fun the whole way fun, and quit the final boss after 5 tries. Top level, best gear I could make, full items, min maxed team. It’s a bad game with zero accessibility options. No difficulty choice (only stupid hard) and a forced level cap. Starting to wonder looking at all the recent square games what the literal **** is happening at HQ.
Avoid this game if you value your time and sanity, it really is that bad.… Expand
