Command a group of warriors as Serenoa, heir of House Wolffort, in a tangled plot where your decisions make all the difference. Key choices you make will bolster one of three convictionsUtility, Morality, Libertywhich together make up Serenoa's world view and influence how the story will unfold. When faced with truly momentous decisions, multiple characters will weigh in by casting their votes on the Scales of Conviction. In these moments, the allies and decisions you make can determine the fate of whole nations and the continent of Norzelia itself. Control multi-tiered battlefields to strategically secure victory
    Finding the best location in turn-based battles can tip the tide of combat in your favor. Position units on higher ground to take control of the battlefield and gain the advantage with increased range. You can also flank enemies on both sides, then strike from behind for a powerful follow-up attack. Elemental chain reactions are also an important part of combat. For example, use fire to melt icy terrain, then use lightning to electrocute it. Push the enemy into the electrified water to see sparks fly!

    Triangle Strategy is unique in its sprawling story, and its success is only solidified by an excellent combat system that makes battles as intense as they are intimidating. With deep lore and an overall mature approach to a genre too often dumbed down, Triangle Strategy is an RPG fans dream.

    I’m a huge fan of this HD-2D style approach Square Enix is taking with these games. Octopath Traveler looked like a souped-up Final Fantasy VI, and similarly, Triangle Strategy looks like a souped-up Final Fantasy Tactics with more modern mechanics and UI. I think fans of the genre are going to really appreciate what Triangle Strategy has going for it, even if the character development could use a bit more work. And for genre newcomers or those less familiar with it like myself, this is a fantastic entry point with an engaging story to keep you hooked.

    A brilliant story driven JRPG with stylish graphics, an impressive combat system and an ideal difficulty level. The battles, the twists, your role in it all which can lead to several different endings - that’s what will keep you playing.

    Triangle Strategy has the seal of approval of Tomoya Asano, producer of other RPGs that have stood out for having a special touch. This tactical RPG sweetens the look for its aesthetics and draws us in little by little, in a drama full of tragic overtones. The robust story and its battle system are its strong points, although the exploration is practically nil. The narrative is dense and at times very slow, which make the battles feel like a prize for which we waited a long time.

    Despite requiring the virtue of patience, Triangle Strategy is a great time. Grid-based battlefield lovers should definitely make a plan to play it.

    Triangle Strategy is shockingly successful at telling a grounded human story in a fantasy world, even if its main cast is extremely dull. That plot is backed up by simple but well-designed and appropriately challenging combat.

    Triangle Strategy delivers smart tactics, but battles play second fiddle to its dull political lore.

    De lo mejor que he jugado en el 2022, un fiel reflejo de Final Fantasy Tactics.

    De lo mejor que he jugado en el 2022, un fiel reflejo de Final Fantasy Tactics.
    Una historia intrigante, un sistema de combate "tactics" desafiante y muy bien elaborado, una excelente banda sonora y la toma de decisiones con sus múltiples caminos y finales lo hacen un gran juego para disfrutar cada minuto.
    Lo recomiendo para todos los fans del genero.

    An absolute must have for every jRPG fan. Minus one point due to not perfect balance between story/fight for my private preference.

    I'm not gonna lie, tactical RPGs aren't one of my favorite genres of games. They're hit or miss with me and often can't play them for longI'm not gonna lie, tactical RPGs aren't one of my favorite genres of games. They're hit or miss with me and often can't play them for long sessions. Triangle Strategy was a game that broke that mold and found myself enjoying it more than I seriously thought I would.

    The game's challenge doesn't end with the battles themselves, it also includes several of the difficult choices the game forces you to make throughout the game. There's a number of games with moral testing choices that I spend more time than I really should on, but choices you have to make in Triangle Strategy are choices that you may find yourself spending an entire day thinking over. Often times, you're faced with choices that are either both good or both bad, really testing your convictions. I initially thought this conviction testing mechanic would just be a simple means of unfolding the story a certain way, but rather it's a situation that makes you question some of your own values and weigh the possible outcomes between the one choice or another. It wasn't something I expected to have such a profound effect on how the game is played and how the events of the story unfold. I gotta hand it to the writers of the story, who put a lot of thought and care into developing a 3rd dimensional world with several 3rd dimensional characters portrayed in HD-2D.

    As tactical RPGs go, it's one of my favorite non-Fire Emblem games. I still prefer Fire Emblem: Three Houses for Switch tactical RPGs for its variety of gameplay options and more colorful cast, but Triangle Strategy has plenty of charm and things going for it that it's definitely worth getting. There's a ton of characters to recruit, a lot of story to unravel, and the writing style is one of my all time favorites in a medieval age setting. This is a recommended game for anyone who enjoys a deep, thought provoking story where your decisions actually matter.

    I love final fantasy tactics. I enjoyed fire emblem three houses. I play tons of jrpgs. This game is one of the very worst I’ve ever played.
