Rainbow Moon PS Vita Review: addictive grind in portable form

PlayStation Universe
4 December 2013
  • Summary: The portability of Rainbow Moon makes the game that much more attractive, allowing for addictive grinding in convenient spurts that the PS3 version couldn't allow. The retro presentation and leveling systems work in tandem extremely well, even if the narrative-less grind to max level will take a while.
  • Pros: Addictive stat-based leveling, Fast-paced tactical combat, Attractive modern/retro combination
  • Cons: Weak narrative embedded in quests, Pervasive grinding

Test Rainbow Moon

Generation NT
24 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Rainbow Moon se présente clairement comme un Tactical-RPG de bonne facture. Le jeu offre certes une certaine difficulté qui pourra rebuter les moins téméraires, mais dispose d'une progression assez longue et regorgeant de quêtes secondaires. Malheureusement, ces dernières ne sont guère intéressantes, puisqu'elles consistent la majeure partie du temps à rapporter un objet précis à un PNJ, ou de jouer les messagers.
  • Pros: Gameplay bien rôdé, Réalisation graphique et sonore de qualité, Bonne durée de vie, Difficulté au rendez-vous
  • Cons: Prise en main rigide, Scénario peu approfondi, Uniquement traduit en anglais

Rainbow Moon

The Gamers Temple
24 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Yeah, Ok, I know that Rainbow Moon, the PS3 exclusive tactical RPG, has been out for a little while now, and yet here is the review at the top of the recent articles list. What took me so long? I could sit here, blaming Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance and Darksiders II for monopolizing my gaming time as of late, but that is only half the story. Rainbow Moon itself shares some of the blame.

A Long, Mostly Enjoyable Grind For Tactics Fans

Game Informer
20 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Create an affordable turn-based tactical RPG with plenty of depth and playtime Graphics: The colorful visuals are undermined by some budget-bin animations Sound: The sparse voiceovers are annoying, but the sound effects and music are enjoyable Playability: Considering most of the gameplay consists of navigating menus, Rainbow Moon controls fine Entertainment: The endless fetch quests and frequent need to grind keep you occupied for dozens of hours.

  • Conclusion: Those gamers who use a thrilling narrative as their gateway into a long game like this and the solid gameplay and breadth of exploration here might not stop Rainbow Moon from becoming tedious. That said, through a combination of streamlining what is a genuinely complicated game and using a simple but effective presentation, the developers have one of the best downloadable games PS3 has ever seen.

Rainbow Moon (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
17 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I love downloadable games for their often unique concepts and gameplay mechanics but most seem to end up a bit on the short side. Rainbow Moon stands in stark contrast to this trend. A classic styled RPG that could take you dozens of hours to complete. Does this make for the best value in a PSN title ever, or a grind that will have you wishing for the end well before you get there?

Rainbow Moon

IGN
29 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The rub with Rainbow Moon is that it’s a serious time investment. But for gamers that do enjoy a stat-driven, equipment-changing, side quest-completing grind, spending time with Rainbow Moon is time well spent, especially considering its costs a meager $15. As many contemporary RPGs dash in a more accessible direction, Rainbow Moon remains stalwart as a champion of the past. Gamers rooted in the old-school owe it to themselves to play it.
  • Pros: Vivid, colorful graphics, Enjoyable combat system, Vast world to explore, Lots of upgrading and customization
  • Cons: Weak story, character development
