If you're into anime JRPGs (Japanese role-playing games), you might like this game's surprisingly deep combat that rewards party balance, timing, potions, and varied combat maneuvers. Fallen Legion: Revenants has a lot to offer for fans of the series or genre. It's fun to play around with the three Exemplars before using Rowena's mana to help heal or strengthen your spell-casting. The game may seem like a button masher, but it's not -- and you'll die often. The story branches and various Exemplars add some replayability, and you can repeat battles for an improved Battle Result, but it would have been better to offer local or online co-op (cooperative play), or additional modes. Another issue is frequent and somewhat long load times. Without exaggeration, there must have been about 20 load screens within the first 60 to 90 minutes of play, which isn't ideal, especially in 2021. Some of these load screens were for non-interactive story elements, while others were between battles, but they all slowed down action and gameplay.

Visually, Revenants isn't anything special, and the voice acting is over-the-top -- similar to many other anime titles with English actors. At times, as many as three characters all talk over each other at the same time, though it might just be a quick comment in the middle of a conversation. At least the gameplay is quite enjoyable, which is most important. But yikes, those load screens. Perhaps the developers can patch some of these issues to make Fallen Legion: Revenants a real worthy side-scrolling action-heavy JRPG. But as it stands now, only those with patience and a fondness for the franchise need apply.
