Expert Review

30 June 2014
  • Conclusion: Mugen Souls Z is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptors of Fantasy Violence, Language, Partial Nudity, and Sexual Themes. While you do battle lots of monsters, the violence is mostly silly. Characters do curse from time to time, and the crude humor is what you’d expect in cartoons like Family Guy or mature themed anime shows. Some characters outfits are a bit skimpy, but everything is still presented in that campy anime style.

  • Conclusion: Attack of the tentacle coffin!
  • Pros: Overleveling to the point that I could win fights that the plot required me to lose.
  • Cons: A terrible ending, and glitches that kept me from getting a better one!

  • Excerpt: Like most games NIS America picks up for Western releases, Mugen Souls Z has side dungeons that can be explored to further train your characters, as well as ton of replayability built around maxing out characters’ levels and achieving the game’s multiple endings. If you can overlook the abundance of questionable situations and the number of mechanics this game has, you can definitely find some fun in Mugen Souls Z .

  • Excerpt: When we last left Chou-chou, the undisputed god of the universe, she had completed her task of taking over the Seven Worlds and turning everything from enemies to random pieces of flotsam into her peons. Now things are getting a bit boring for the moody tike and it's time to go exploring again. We rejoin her as she sets her sights on the Twelve Worlds, once again bent on domination.

Mugen Souls Z Review: fun combat wrapped around a convoluted mess of a story

PlayStation Universe
21 May 2014
  • Summary: Mugen Souls Z is a fun RPG that doesn't try to be serious. As such, it leaves the storyline convoluted, messy, and boring to sit through. If you have the patience to get through it though, then the combat system, character customization and all the extra goodies more than make up for it.
  • Pros: The fact it's not afraid to be different, and pushing societal buttons with its cast, Deep character customization, You have your own Gundam!
  • Cons: The convoluted, boring story that is little more than banter, The seemingly recycled environments from previous Compile Hearts games

  • Conclusion: With a dull storyline, annoying characters, and clumsy battle system, Mugen Souls Z duplicates the failures of its predecessor and adds some of its own.
  • Pros: A return to form for players who enjoyed the first Mugen Souls, Colorful designs and settings
  • Cons: Uninteresting and cliché-ridden plot, Pointless, annoying, and overlong cutscenes, A confused and contradictory battle system

PlayStation LifeStyle
20 May 2014
  • Summary: It’s a Peon-eat-Peon world out there…
  • Pros: Technically, better than the original., More Moe-type attacks available., Even more gameplay than last time.
  • Cons: Still the same-old grind, unappealing visuals., "G-Castle" combat feels out of place., Story is all over the place most of the time.

Mugen Souls Z

Game Revolution
19 May 2014
  • Excerpt: A game in need of sensitivity counseling. I’ll admit that sometimes I don’t entirely understand the gamut of games Japan has to offer. On one hand, there are gameplay and artistic masterpieces like Katamari Damacy and Okami . And on the other, lotion-slathered hand are games like Conception II and the current subject, Mugen Souls Z . This is not an RPG for everyone; that much is for certain.

Review: Mugen Souls Z (Sony PlayStation 3)

Diehard GameFAN
18 May 2014
  • Summary: Mugen Souls Z tries its best to improve upon the groundwork laid by its predecessor, and to that end, it succeeds. It’s a more accessible game as a whole, features new characters that are far more likable, and the mechanics require less guesswork. The problem is that while Compile Heart was able to make it easier to interpret their original vision, it’s one that most people won’t find all that appealing anyway.
