  • Conclusion: For all the time Black Sigil spent in development, it’s disappointing to see such a ho-hum experience unveiled. Make no mistake – it’s not broken. The combat works, for the most part, and there’s a story worth experiencing, if you don’t mind unearthing it out from under a seemingly endless stream of random battles.

  • Excerpt: There is a strong neo-retro trend in gaming these days, and independent RPG developers have been ahead of that curve for a long time now. There is a strong desire to recapture those warm fuzzy feelings of rose-colored nostalgia that gamers around my age felt back when we were tweens or teens playing Final Fantasy IV-VI on the SNES or Phantasy Star II-IV on the Genesis.

  • Conclusion: In today’s cycle of videogame releases, it’s a rare find to find an RPG experience that takes you back to the days of the Super Nintendo. With an engaging story, nostalgic visuals, and a well put together musical soundtrack, Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled is a true gaming experience that will be remembered long after the Nintendo DS has been put to rest. Though there were a few issues with the game, none of them stop the enjoyment factor of the experience.
