SKALD: Against the Black Priory - Review @ PCGamesN

Skald Against the Black Priory review - a modern take on retro RPGs

Strong worldbuilding and unique visuals prop up an imbalanced combat system in Raw Fury and High North Studios' retro-infused RPG.

Attempting to play the forefathers of the RPG genre in 2024 requires patience steeped in a hefty amount of nostalgia. From the days of Ultima and the first Baldur's Gate, the genre has developed quality-of-life features that have made it difficult to turn back the clock by two or more decades. So when a game like Skald: Against the Black Priory promises that retro RPG feel with enough modern concessions to make it fun to play, I jump at the chance to get my hands on it.

[...]

Our Verdict

Skald: Against the Black Priory captures the spirit of your favorite old-school RPGs while serving up deep sidequests and memorable lore, but its combat and progression systems eventually run into trouble and its overarching narrative never quite takes off.

Score: 7/10

CAPES REVIEW

Every hero has their unique super-strengths in this wonderfully intense turn-based strategy game.

All the best superhero teams have one thing in common: everyone has their role. While Wolverine's charging in, claws flashing, Cyclops is up on a ridge shooting down lasers, Iceman is zipping around freezing foes, Jean Grey is delving into a supervillain's mind, and Colossus is body-blocking energy blasts.

That's what your squad of superheroes feels like in Capes as you're directing them in turn-based battles. From teleporter Rebound to psychic Mindfire to speedster Mercurial, each character is wonderfully distinct, and securing victory means combining their unique powers to enhance their strengths and cover their weaknesses.

[...]

Really, though, it's not the story that pulls you along - it's the depth of strategy on offer. The drama isn't in the cutscenes, it's in every nail-biting turn as you try and figure out the perfect combo to get you out of another fine mess. It can be a serious challenge - if you're the kind of person who hates the idea of reloading the same mission multiple times looking for the right approach, this probably isn't for you. But meet it on its own terms and Capes will give you 20-30 hours of wonderfully substantial and engrossing superhero strategy.

THE VERDICT
An awkward story doesn't hold Capes back from being one of the best turn-based strategy games of recent years.

Score: 80/100

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes review - Raise and Raze Castles

There was a time when Kickstarter seemed like the answer to all gaming problems. Fancy a sequel to a forgotten series? Kickstarter it. Or want a new series from a legendary team? Kickstarter it. And while the buzz around crowdfunding games has died down a lot from its heydays, one name got the masses excited one last time. Rabbit & Bear Studio's first title from this pledge is Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.

[...]

Long to Beat
Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is a slow burner that takes time to really get going. I was about 14 hours in, before I happened upon the games quick travel system.

But if you give it the time needed, there is a lot to enjoy here. Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is a real throwback to classic JRPG's, where epic tales and turn-based action was the order of the day.

Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord - Review

Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord Review - Casting Its Spell

Back in the 80s, there simply weren't that many options for "dungeon crawling" in the world of gaming. However, we did see some innovative titles that paved the way for what was to come. Like, for instance, the 1981 Sir-Tech release Wizardry.

Brutal in nature but still fascinating at its core, Wizardry introduced a compelling gameplay system using the most basic of visuals. And it moved the genre forward nicely, followed by a number of sequels for PC and consoles alike.

Now, Digital Eclipse, the retro masters that they are, have put a significant touch on the game with Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord, which takes the original material and crafts an entirely new experience from it - while at the same time keeping helpful reminders about whence (whence?) it came.

The end result is a game that will definitely test your nerves, but offers something excellent for the long-term. What's more, its presentation sets a standard for how to do retro right. We'll explain a bit later in the review.

[...]

Embrace the Wizard
If you didn't bother with the original Wizardry, you may not entirely be sold on what Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord has to offer. The gameplay is mostly the same, though the new presentation does make it much more appealing.

However, I think it's worth giving a try. The battle system, though brutal in spots, is very well done, and the touches Digital Eclipse have added to this universe - especially the original Apple II overlay - is astounding. It'll definitely keep you busy for hours at a time as you level up your party to something fierce.

Give it a shot. Whether you're a newbie or a long-time fan, it won't be hard to see what kind of spell Digital Eclipse cast here.

Score: 4/5
