Tactics Ogre veterans will experience a game that surpasses their fondest memories, while players new to Tactics Ogre will discover a game unlike any they've ever played. 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

    In a world where we've seen Square Enix fall down with remasters (examples include the lacklustre Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters and the egregious Kingdom Hearts on Switch), Tactics Ogre: Reborn highlights something special – a change of the guard, so to speak, that bodes remarkably well for the rest of the publisher's classic RPG oeuvre.

    Tactics Ogre: Reborn is hugely successful in its goals to modernise an admittedly old game.

    Voiced dialogue aside, Tactics Ogre: Reborn is easily the definitive version of a classic game that’s been through a few very different iterations. Instead of stopping at a graphical overhaul and some quality-of-life features, it reimagines a lot of the game’s core systems in a way that strikes a fine balance between the thematically-fitting brutality of the original and the depth and tactical freedom of the PSP remake. There’s no better way to revisit the legacy of Tactics Ogre than this.

    Although several decades have passed since its debut on the market, Tactics Ogre continues to be one of the best exponents of the strategic genre and the new re-edition packaged by Square Enix has been able to greatly increase the smoothness of the experience. Although with some exceptions, the tricks made to the playful dough have been able to rejuvenate the title with an old-school flavor, making it palatable even in the eyes of the new generations. On the flip side, however, the technical sector does not defend itself as well. Our advice is therefore to use it on the small screen of the Nintendo Switch, which thanks to portability will be able to partially mask the age of a milestone like Tactics Ogre.

    A tactics behemoth, only those with spreadsheet minds will emerge victorious. Tactics Ogre: Reborn shows that a good old game can be edited and added to with grace and remain impressive in its field.

    One of the grandfathers of tactical role-playing returns with an ambitious new remaster, that includes a surprising number of improvements and only a few missteps.

    For all its murky mechanics and slow pace, Tactics Ogre: Reborn still blends satisfying combat with a top-tier story in a way that few games can match. If you’re a fan of the tactical RPG genre and want a serious challenge, there’s simply no reason not to play this game. But newcomers may want to start with something more approachable, or at least keep waiting for that Final Fantasy Tactics remake we’re all hoping for.

The story feels like good episodes of Game of Thrones, and the gameplay has been updated for modern audiences. I've put 100's of hours into this and the original.

    The negative reviews like you see from KrillerBomb are a joke, not specific and should be safely ignored.

    Its no Fire Emblem, but its still an amazing SRPG. This is a perfect fit for the portable Switch and makes a mighty fine edition to ones library.

    I really enjoy this game. The difficulty is about right - I rarely get game overs but I'm often very close to screwing up the missions. TheI really enjoy this game. The difficulty is about right - I rarely get game overs but I'm often very close to screwing up the missions. The sound is excellent, and I really enjoy the voice acting. The game doesn't always do a great job explaining how the item mechanics work, but once you experiment everything becomes pretty clear. Everyone should let the game show the story when starting up to know what is going on. My main gripe with the game is the user interface on some of the menus - these should have been modernized. But otherwise, this is a very good Super Nintendo / PSP remake that has interesting mechanics like choices determining the story. It's a lot of fun, as long as you aren't one of these retards who buys games for pretty graphics over mechanics. Expand

    This game is absolutely terrible and beyond overrated. One of the most yawn inducing experiences I've ever had with a game...
