Earthlock: Festival of Magic Speed-Review (PlayStation 4)

"Plants... plants everywhere!"


Title: Earthlock: Festival of Magic
Genre: Turn-based JRPG
Developer: Snow Castle Games
Publisher: In-house
US



Earthlock: Festival of Magic regales you to wander on its lush and festive world. Gameplay in its barebones can be surmised as a Turn-based RPG with a twist, for it takes homage to the classic Japanese RPGs of old where linearity is prominent, along with its own set of features such as; the Pair system where bonds between playable characters can grow and in turn give benefits towards gameplay, and the impressive use of color shading and texture renders had made the game more lively. Even though Earthlock sets its roots at the RPG-genre, everything doesn’t work well and most of the time is asynchronous to the entire quality base where it bears a somewhat repetitive and lackluster experience.

Verdict:
Earthlock: Festival of Magic has room for potential and is only held back by modern conventions that seasoned RPG-players crave for along with its innate features that either break the rhythm or is unnecessary.
