    CrossCode Review

    Radical Fish Games have not done themselves justice with their attempts to harbor more coverage of CrossCode. It says a lot that I, an invested games critic who follows the industry closely, more or less completely missed this release back in September. When offered the chance to review CrossCode I didn't initially expect all that much from this SNES inspired action RPG. What I've ended up playing through though should have been an unmistakably potential game of the year for 2018.

    CrossCode's plot revolves around Lea, an amnesiac woman who is using hit MMO CrossWorlds to help regain her memory. CrossWorlds is unique as whilst it's an MMO game, it also takes place in the real world. A small moon called Shadoon has been reserved as the physical space for CrossWorlds. Remote players use physical avatars to exist and play CrossWorlds on this moon. The plot behind CrossWorlds is that you have to traverse through several alien temples to recover lost technology but the actual plot of CrossCode instead focuses on our protagonist. I won't go into details here as CrossCode is very plot heavy but long story short, it's a good narrative to get invested in.

    [...]

    Verdict: I'm not sure how this slid under the radar so hard but make no mistake, CrossCode should have been a serious 2018 game of the year candidate. Radical Fish Games have effectively showcased a model development cycle by listening to consumer feedback, interacting with their community and releasing an outstanding title. Minor flaws aside, CrossCode is a special game that is completely worth your time and money. The developers should be proud of what they have made.

    Score: 5/5
