    Tokyo, Spring of 20XX

    The special forces unit known as the Xth Squad has been through countless battles, putting their superhuman abilities to the test. Thanks to them, the bizarre incidents, which threw the world into chaos, have been long forgotten.

    It looked as though their battles were finally over. But one day, everything changed...

    An unidentified object, nearly 2,000 miles long, appeared without warning high in the sky. It was dubbed...the Embryo. Was this a gift from heaven, or a sign of the end times? The world once again fell into chaos, and the United Nations turned to the Code Physics Agency for help. The Xth had a single mission: Infiltrate the mysterious object. Victory seemed within their reach, when suddenly...

    Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy features fantastic classic dungeon RPG gameplay with many unique and satisfying mechanics. It may not be the most memorable game in the genre but it's one that genre fans shouldn't pass up.

    Operation Babel feels too similar to its predecessor with a weaker cameo-focused story & reused assets but exceeds it in every other aspect of gameplay. The new subclass system provides extra control on party depth.

    Project Babel: New Tokyo Legacy is basically a big "more of the same", without any noticeable innovation. It's an excellent dungeon crawler if you're a newcomer to the series, or the genre altogether.

    The tediousness of exploration, battle, and menus really bog down Operation Babel, in spite of what the game does well.

    If you’re already previously invested in Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy‘s universe, characters and gameplay, then I’m sure there’s a lot to like here. However, for a newcomer to the series, the lack of tutorials is frustrating, the environments and world are visually bland, and the gameplay loop not engaging enough to make me want to come back for more.

    Operation Babel is a good Dungeon RPG, with a nice design, but it's less accessible than the other Dungeon Crawlers available on Vita, so be careful.

    Overall Operation Babel is a frustrating experience. The game mechanics aren't explained particularly well, and so you’ll need a lot of patience to figure out how everything works. If you’re a newcomer to the genre then you’re better off playing something like Ray Gigant. While Babel has some interesting mechanics, it definitely lacks a lot of the polish of similar titles like Stranger of Sword City. Simply put, there are a lot of quality dungeon crawlers out there on Vita that do a much better job than Operation Babel.
