Summary: Ragnarok Tactics is a very run of the mill tactics game. It features all of the basics and doesn’t do any of them any real injustices. However, it suffers from slow pacing and a lack of any unique ideas. You can still have fun with it if you’re a fan of the genre, but it isn’t going to offer the same kind of depth or intrigue as the more iconic games. If you need a fix, the game can fit the bill well enough. Just don’t expect it to wow you in any way.
Excerpt: This is the year of Ragnarok for Sony handheld owners. Not only has Ragnarok Odyssey brought a Monster Hunter -style spin-off of Ragnarok Online to the Vita, but Ragnarok Tactics is providing PSP and Vita owners with a Final Fantasy Tactics take. Rest assured that no knowledge of Ragnarok Online is needed. Players can easily jump into Ragnarok Tactics with only the knowledge that it is a strategic RPG inspired by Norse mythology.
Pros: Can customize your avatar’s name and appearance, multiple job classes to choose from, can choose character’s response during the story which in turn influences which ending you receive, there are main and side missions to undertake, can relax in battle to restore HP and SP, the game is simple to understand and the character art looks really good. There’s no permadeath if a character falls in battle. There’s a flowchart so you can see which story route you’re on and tr...
Cons: It’s quite challenging with only one difficulty level, so players have to play cautiously. Battles take quite a long time to complete. Tutorials provide a lot of information at once on a static screen, which makes it easy to overlook something important.
Review: Ragnarok Tactics is great, if a little on the easy side
15 November 2012
Excerpt: What a month the Ragnarok series has been having. Hot on the heels of Ragnarok Odyssey, a hopeful PS Vita replacement for the now 3DS-exclusive Monster Hunter franchise, comes Ragnarok Tactics , a tactical JRPG that’s out on PSP for some reason. Oh yeah, and they’re both based on the Korean MMO Ragnarok Online from the early 2000’s. It’s definitely bizarre, and yet Odyssey has been racking up some pretty solid reviews across the board.
Conclusion: O sistema de batalha do jogo também agrega pontos, mas tem elementos que o tornam injusto com algumas classes. Além disso, o pacote seria completo se o game apresentasse todas as classes da versão online – aqui você joga inicialmente com personagens Transclasse, mas não vai ver um Stalker (Desordeiro) ou um Biochemist (Bioquímico), por exemplo.
Pros: Pontos Positivos, História ramificada, Similaridades com o MMO, Elementos de batalha
