    This is a complete experience for JRPGs fans, the combat system, quests, history and characters are all awesome, but the graphics isn't worth of this current generation, and the switch version has many problems. Despite of this is a must have for any fan of the JRPG genre, and one of the best games of nintendo switch.

    This is a good PS4 to Switch port. Framerate is stable with only minor graphical adjustments (aliasing). The game itself lends itself well to portable play, which is how I prefer to experience these games after playing the first two on PS Vita.

    Trails of Cold Steel III is a very ambitious game in terms of plot and lore but it really couldn't be no other way in this series. If the fans will be delighted to mire in the game's content, improved interface and combat system, it's also not any less true that Trails of Cold Steel III can feel intimidating for players unfamiliar with the series, and as such they might not enjoy this effort as much as long-time fans, who will find a long-lasting work to wrap themselves with.

    The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III drops JRPGo fans into the middle of a massive story arc and then has a tendency to meander. However, it provides more than enough thrills and compelling moments to make this an adventure worth taking.

    The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is one of the best JRPGs ever made and this Thors Academy Edition is a wonderful treat for fans of the franchise so if you enjoy adventuring with Rean then you'll treasure this very special package.
