    I'm enjoying it. It isn't a masterpiece, nothing groundbreaking has happened and probably won't happy but the game is solid and very enjoyable.

    Graphics and music wise, the game is great, but rather standard. In the mechanics field it seems to shine, or at the very least deviate greatly from the norm. The battle have a few interesting mechanics that keep most fights from being same-y

    Graphics and music wise, the game is great, but rather standard. In the mechanics field it seems to shine, or at the very least deviate greatly from the norm. The battle have a few interesting mechanics that keep most fights from being same-y while giving you all the options you need. Battles are not random, you can see enemies coming, and there are very few of them, but you can always grind by initiating battles from the menu. Items tend to be less stat-oriented and give you unique features that help you adjust your strategy.

    The story and characters are mostly forgettable but the overall experience is fun.

    I recommend this to anyone who's looking for something unique to fill the void between major releases.

    At a first glance, Cosmic Star Heroine is a throwback to the JRPGs of the past. With a superb pixel-art style, deep combat system and fast-paced narrative, it becomes much more than a mere homage.

    Cosmic Star Heroine is far more than a simple send-up of some of the genreā€™s most beloved classics. It may imitate a similar art style and plot development, but it shows a good amount of innovation in some key areas. Particularly its combat system is packed with new and interesting ideas that require a good deal of attention paid during even rote battles. The variety of combat systems end up being as much of a drawback as an advantage late in the game, though, when lengthy skirmishes seem needlessly protracted. What still remains is a fun, if not terribly demanding galactic romp to save the cosmos alongside a crew of colorful, if not terribly deep pals.

    Cosmic Star Heroine is a retro style RPG that will delight lovers of the genre, but that will leave you wanting more and a bittersweet taste when you see the unexploited potential that could have turned it into a AAA game.
