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.

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.

Summary: At a quick glance, Legasista looks like a typical Japanese role-playing game: anime-styled characters, some plot bits about an ancient society with long-lost weapons, and lots of complicated statistics and systems to keep track of.
Pros: Engaging dungeon exploration and looting, Clever, challenging enemies and traps, Lots of customization options for existing and player-made characters, Fantastic soundtrack
Cons: Cheap-looking cutscenes, Customization tools are a pain to use, Dialogue errors make certain gameplay elements confusing
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.
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 .

Excerpt: Legasista was originally released as a proper retail title in Japan, but a few months later it’s available there and in other regions as a download-only game. That’s a more appropriate means of distribution for a game of this sort, if you ask me.
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.
Excerpt: of depth and customization, this one should be high on your priority list. I really have to avoid games like this during the busy times, primarily because of the inherent addictive quality; it always draws me in and keeps me playing for…unhealthy amounts of time.
