2 April 2014
Summary: Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is more of the same, a lot more of the same, and the current assortment of new content and gameplay improvements may not be enough to warrant the steep $40 price tag, even for veteran aficionados of the cult action-RPG series.
Pros: ACE skills further diversify class roles, Mercenary helpers and Halomonas weapons relieve difficulty spikes, The Tower of Yggdrasil offers profitable farming opportunities
Cons: Still cringingly repetitive, Post-game content recycles a lot of old enemies and bosses, Camera issues and lock-on concerns still present

Pros: Tons of options for character customization, Enjoyable multiplayer, Throwbacks to the original Ragnarok for old fans
Cons: Stagnate gameplay, Repetitive levels, Missions that offer little reward or sense of accomplishment
