This Rondo Deserves

  • Conclusion: Rondo of Swords is a really excellent SRPG and probably the best game of the genre on the DS to date. Admittedly, it's certainly not for everybody; in fact, this game is clearly geared toward hardcore gamers.

  • Excerpt: “Nothin’ like a hard day’s work” my grandfather believed, along with so many others. Trite but true, it’s usually more rewarding to indulge in victory after pushing your abilities to the limit.
