    This Is eXputer's Review Of The The DioField Chronicle.

    This DioField Chronicle Review covers one of the latest additions to the increasingly popular genre of 'Fictional Countries In A Fantasy World Fighting for Dominance.' And if that definition brings up a number of franchises to mind, rest assured that you're not alone.

    It is evident from the very first glance that this title is inspired by a number of extremely popular games of the past. And when I say this, I mean this in terms of both the narrative and the gameplay. Think Final Fantasy Tactics, Vlakyria Chronicles, XCOM, and even the record-shattering series that is Fire Emblem.

    But while it borrows from a lot of these, the end product is fairly unique, and I'm not sure that it will appeal to everyone. So with this review, we intend to give you a better idea of what this game is and help you decide if you should invest time and money into a full-priced $60 title.

    [...]

    The DioField Chronicle is going to be a polarising game because while it does make use of a number of really solid ideas, it has little to no unique aspects to speak of. The core combat is really fun, and the slew of abilities, summons, and tactics you can utilize give a much-needed depth to your battles. The maps where encounters take place are also really beautifully created in the style of dioramas, making you feel like a general overlooking a model battlefield.

    But if you're here for the story, then don't hold your breath. None of the main characters are relatable or unique, and they act like they never really belong in a scene. There's also a surprising lack of detail in everything from the character models to the interior of your HQ.

    All in all, this is a solid RPG that should keep you occupied for a few weeks, after which you'll probably never think about it again.

    The Good
    • Great Core Combat.
    • Selection Of Fun Skills And Summons.
    • Mission Structure.
    • Diorama-Style Arenas.
    The Bad
    • Boring Story.
    • Bland Characters.
    • Lack Of Detail Outside Arenas.
    The DioField Chronicle Verdict - 3/5
