    While it may not be the first of its kind or groundbreaking, RemiLore brings the potential of even more to come in the future and starts in a great place that makes it well worth giving a try as it’s the perfect balance of challenge without being frustrating. RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is a fun adventure with enjoyable dialogue and characters in addition to some great combat that makes it fun to replay again and again.

    RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore delivers tons of loot-based hack-and-slash joy despite the repetition and a few frustrating hiccups with the procedurally generated levels.

    My only real gripe with the game is the lack of saving and respawning options. I am one of those players that tends to die a lot, so it can be a bit frustrating. Not to mention the mini-map is quite small, so it can be easy to miss something important before moving onto the next level. Other than that, RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is an incredibly fun title. With beautiful graphics and fluid hack ’n’ slash action, not to mention the back and forth hilarious banter from our heroes, this title is an easy pick whether you are playing it at home or on the go.

    RemiLore is a fast-paced satisfying rogue-lite game with randomized level maps, fun hack-and-slash moves, and smooth controls. If the save mechanic was better, this would be a top-notch game.

    RemiLore proves itself to be a well-made and inoffensive loot grind of an RPG; consider giving this one a look.

    RemiLore lays a decent groundwork in terms of gameplay and design, but it never really goes beyond that. Combat is simple and promising, but the lack of depth makes it hard to stay engaged with it for very long. The visuals, likewise, lack any kind of unique punch or distinct art style to make them stand out as anything other than generic. The game is helped by its forgiving nature and the likable pair of protagonists you control, but a bit more care and effort could have helped make this game something truly special.

    RemiLore is not a bad game, it's more of a missed opportunity, because the gameplay loop feels familiar and funny just in small doses and there's a complete lack of innovations, enemy variety and customization.

    This is actually a very enjoyable game, particularly when played in coop, but it feels quite simple and easy. A deeper gameplay and a more challenging difficulty would have made it a much better experience.

    RemiLore gets the mechanics for a fun dungeon crawler down, but does little to hold a player’s attention.

    RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is a new 'hack and slash' RPG that combines challenging levels with a bland variation in characters.

    Boasting a wonderful story that is sadly betrayed by repetitive gameplay and an unfair system in which dying means a huge loss of progress, RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is only recommended if you’re serious about your dungeon crawling experiences.

    RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is a pretty basic hack-and-slash that offers some interesting levelling up options, but the lack of depth in both the story and combat leaves it feeling a little empty. Despite the great story premise, and a fun choice of character with Lore, the pages just feel a little empty to this book.

    Although it features a unique premise and a solid blend of genres, RemiLore's core gameplay is simply too monotonous to remain fun.

    RemiLore just doesn’t have enough variety to stay interesting for more than a few minutes. Though the characters are mildly entertaining with an impressive amount of dialogue to flesh out their interactions, there’s just too much you need to put up with to get to the good parts of the game. Rogue-lite and Action RPG are two crowded genres, and RemiLore unfortunately decided to tackle them both without covering even the basics of what makes either interesting in the first place.

    Nicalis offers us a game that simplifies the most usual mechanics of hack'n'slash and combines them with the procedural creation of levels. In the end, however, it lacks skills and weapons that diversify the gameplay, which ends up being repetitive and, therefore, boring.

    RemiLore is a simple effort and there's nothing wrong with that per se - the game features a good looking visual environment and some interesting ideas, the problem is putting them into practice without forcing the player into an experience that feels dull and repetitive...and that's exactly what ends up happening, as RemiLore does not have the assets to deliver an involving experience.
  17. 50
    Combine the uninspired enemies and level design with a checkpoint system that’s more than happy to erase half an hour of progress if you die midway through a run, and you’ll find that RemiLore becomes a game that’s more tedium than fun.
  18. Mar 4, 2019
    Despite the good looks and a solid mechanical foundation, RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is a game hampered by repetitive gameplay, a story that isn’t all that compelling, and a save system that discourages mixing it up. Some of this could well be hammered out in subsequent installments, but as it stands now, this is an okay diversion but not a stellar title, especially at the starting price tag.

    RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Land of Lore is a huge disappointment for me. When you can grab something excellent like Enter the Gungeon for a fraction of the price, it almost comes off as embarrassing. It's not utterly vile like a pickle sandwich, just incomprehensibly dull considering its vibrant, cute, colorful presentation.
  20. Mar 13, 2019
    The quest in RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is inconsequential, and the only reason why anyone would play this is to have a cute hack'n slash with the utter bare minimum of rogue elements. Bringing a friend along will help keep things interesting, but there is just not enough substance to keep most hooked. It is too easy, and one has to play very carelessly in order to feel the rush of walking that razor's edge that comes with the better rogue-likes.

    Pretty much the most infuriating game of this genre I've seen and played.

    This game has terrible upgrades. Only a few are actually desirable, so it pays off to NOT unlock things because you can't choose to use them, it just means they randomly pop up. So don't unlock the stupid powers.

    Oh and fun fact you can't just straight up upgrade your health and stamina. The only way is an item that randomly upgrades or DOWNGRADES your hp. Yes that is right. You start at 100hp. But i went up to 120 from the upgrade item, and then I got several in a row that removed so much HP that I ended up with 90HP. YUP. So don't pick up those items because it might make the game harder.

    Combat comes down to three things, dash, heavy hit and light hit. Sadly there are only like 3 combos too. So that means you get bored quick. What is that? You think different weapon types give you different and more interesting combos and tactics? NOPE. That would make sense.

    Also dashing does nothing for you. Dead Cells is a fun game right? Know how dashes give you invincibility frames? Not in this game. You can end up face dashing into a flurry of bullets.

    Story wise this game is decent. Nothing special. You are Remi, a random lazy school girl who gets transported by lore(a sentient encyclopedia of recipes) to a magical world of demon robots that have killed everyone made by the game's tsundere antagonist who dislikes Lore.

    Don't waste your money. This wouldn't be a game I'd waste my quarters on if it were an arcade cabinet, and it is the worst part because it is just an arcade style game.

    Run from this game. RUN!

    I just do NOT understand the low user scores for RemiLore on switch...I really don’t!
    The game is outstanding and can be described as kinda like Diablo 3 with a sweet tooth lol. It’s a top down/isometric hack n slash and the controls are SUPER tight! Like AAA caliber controls no joke. The ONLY thing I can think of that MAY lower the score is the annoying voice acting as there’s no way to change it from Japanese to English. I HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone who loves action RPGs and especially fans of hack n Slash games!!

    Pros: nice art style and decent enough story, good rogue like/rpg game, unique weapons and power ups, different outfits, NG+ is actually worthPros: nice art style and decent enough story, good rogue like/rpg game, unique weapons and power ups, different outfits, NG+ is actually worth it as it’s not just the same story (it is similar but the reason for refighting in the worlds is different and with a different character), and different modes

    Cons: I always seemed to run low on health and could never find a HP orb, death means restarting the entire world, initial play through is quick (NG+ fixes this though)

    Overall I enjoyed this game and I would recommend it to anyone. However, I would not recommend purchasing it at full price. It’s not worth it’s price unless it’s used. There’s just not a lot to the story mode and it can easily be beaten in a day. If you play normal story and NG+ you could still either beat it in a long day or a weekend. NG+ is worth it though because it’s the same worlds and mechs but from the other character’s point of view and has a different purpose as to why you are fighting with them. Also because of recent shady practices by publisher Nicalis, I would say it’s better to buy it used so they don’t get the money. Either that, or try to find some way to buy it that supports the creator but not Nicalis. I can’t say that I can ever recommend a Nicalis game anymore, because of a recent story that came out. However, if you still like a game they publish, just buy it used or through some other mean.

    P.S. I have no problem with the people that work at Nicalis, but their owner is rude and doesn’t hold his end up to contracts. He also treats his people like they are POS.
