    A huge and ambitious action-RPG game, a remarkable gem with great combat system and world design. Its downside are the old-gen looking graphics, but it's definitely recommended to action games lovers.

    Whilst Anima isn't perfect, it is a huge, honest and generally very good game that should appeal to fans of third-person action games.

    There are a number of very compelling elements that really solidify Anima as a title that had an ambitious vision and a team dedicated to making it a reality. At the same time, they also sought to take elements from other successful games. This amounts to an inferior gameplay experience, but one that is also surrounded by the strength of its original elements.

    As an overall package it has a solid foundation of gameplay mechanics that should keep you entertained for a while. If you love RPG’s with a mix of hack and slash combat, then give Anima: Gate of Memories a look and join The Bearer and Ergo as they fight back the darkness.

    Anima has a few issues, more on the technical side than on the gameplay itself, but it's a very enjoyable game. Considering the lack of ARGPs we've seen lately, it's not a bad choice.

    So, players with a strong sense of patience and more forgiveness than should be required in their souls should check this out. There are jewels among the rubble of this tower.

    Anima: Gate of Memories had so much potential, but a series of missteps produced a merely average game.

Its a veryThis is another game that people seem to over look just because its not a triple A title. Don't let the critics turn you away. Its a very interesting game with a ton of replay value. You will be spending a while getting all the collectibles, all the endings, and leveling up your character. This game has a huge Castlevania feel which makes it all the greater. This game has a very compelling story with likable characters.This games only cons is its cut scenes which are weird to say the least. Also some of the sound design for the attacks are a little weird. Other than that, this game is a gem and with it only being 20$ its a definite must have. Expand

    Ya quisieran muchos de los AAA del mercado siquiera estar la mitad de cuidados que este título.
    Jugando al título enseguida se nos vendrán a la mente grandes sleepers de su generación, como fueron NieR o El Shaddai, sin duda grandes fuentes de inspiración que encajan perfectamente en el mundo de Anima.
