Legasista

Gaming Evolution
15 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Legasista isn’t for the faint of heart. If you are not use to level-grinding or don’t have a fascination within Japanese only games, then you won’t find this title interesting. If you are looking for a challenging experience which will reward your hard work and dedication, look no further than Legasista. I believe this is the first time that NIS America and developer System Prisma have teamed up for an epic JRPG that brings new light to the genre.

Review: Legasista

  • Conclusion: Legasista is a dungeon crawler that just wants people to explore it–specifically, people that like to grind through level upon level with loads of traps. System Prisms have done a great job at adding a bit of spice to the formula by adding customizable energy frames and multiple health and durability bars. Each floor of the dungeon is accompanied with a simple and fun story, filled with a great cast of interesting characters.

Review: Legasista (Sony PlayStation 3)

Diehard GameFAN
14 September 2012
  • Summary: While Legasista might not be for everybody, it’s a fun title that invites loads of customization, including the ability to import images to use as sprites for your character. It’s a 2D action RPG with a story just interesting enough to keep you engaged, and lots of dungeons, both randomized and non, to explore.

Legasista

Playstation Illustrated
12 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Upon starting up Legasista , the first thing you’ll probably notice are the lack of arms and legs. Your in-game character is basically a floating head with disconnected hands and feet reminiscent of Rayman . It’s something you’ll soon get used to, but still, implied appendages are not for everyone. But beyond the simple character design, the game really does look better than its screenshots.

  • Excerpt: I've learned over the years to stop expecting Disgaea from every NIS offering. Despite success in this endeavor, I still find myself disappointed with their published titles. Their latest entry, Legasista , is no exception. With this game, I can't pinpoint any one major flaw. Mostly, it's a collection of moderate issues, each one marring a different key feature that would otherwise be excellently executed. I'm not speaking of mechanics, of course.

  • Excerpt: So there’s plenty to do. Legasista is also gorgeous to look at. Moving the top-down dungeon crawler to the PS3 means that the graphics have a wonderful hand-drawn look that just wasn’t possible when you were playing and loving A Link to the Past . The combat effects look great as well. The only real negative to be found in Legasista is that the only voice option is Japanese.
  • Pros: Huge replay from randomly-generated dungeons, beautiful graphics, interesting equipment system
  • Cons: No English voice acting, difficulty can swing wildly doe to the game’s random nature

Legasista review (PS3)

HonestGamers
26 August 2012
  • Excerpt: When you’re not advancing the plot, you’ll spend a lot of your time in random dungeons. Those dungeons are really the heart of the game, much like the Item World is in Nippon Ichi Software’s own

  • Conclusion: Legasista is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptors of Partial Nudity and Fantasy Violence. You just hit and slash silly monsters with weapons and magic, and they disappear when defeated. Some of the female anime characters dress a bit revealing, which is where the Partial Nudity comes in. But like most anime tropes, anything remotely suggestive is presented in a very campy way.
