Liege Dragon is a turn-based RPG printed by KEMCO. It has all of the role-playing parts you can ask for: an unlimited world to discover, loads of enemies to defeat, and a celebration of characters to play. It sounds nice, however let’s see if it’s actually as enjoyable because it appears.
I’ve performed my fair proportion of RPGs from KEMCO, comparable to Miden Tower and Asdivine Kamura. There isn’t a lot distinction between these KEMCO video games by way of gameplay. Most role-playing video games embody the identical parts, comparable to battles, magic, exploring worlds, and the like. Nevertheless it’s how these parts are proven otherwise that make an RPG sparkle for me. Liege Dragon was simply okay for me. It’s not essentially as a result of it was so much like the opposite video games I’ve already performed, nevertheless it was bland by itself.
The sport begins with a too-long narration about its backstory. I finished studying it about midway by and, despite the fact that I might have skipped it, I let it go simply to see how lengthy it was. Six minutes later, I used to be in a position to start the sport.
There are lots of cutscenes and dialogue to learn, which is okay, however I a lot would have rathered performed the sport, explored the world, and battled enemies. For an RPG, there have been too many minimize scenes for me. The characters weren’t all that attention-grabbing, both. They’d clichéd personalities, and I wasn’t excited by their story a lot. I gained’t get into the story, although, as a result of spoilers.
The battles had been okay. The characters might use a primary assault or use magic. The magic is realized by elemental crystals, which you obtain from profitable battles. Every spell wants a certain quantity of crystals to be understood by one character. There are 4 parts: water, wind, fireplace, and earth. There are 4 characters, so I gave every of them one ingredient to concentrate on.
The enemies have their strengths and weaknesses to the weather. So, earth assaults labored properly with water-based enemies. To determine the weaknesses, it was both trial and error there was a wind-element assault you can use. Total, the enemies had been simple sufficient to defeat. That’s the common enemies – not the bosses or mini-bosses.
Liege Dragon just isn’t a sport to breeze proper by. The bosses are robust, and you need to grind so much. Your characters have little protection, and one of many early bosses will wipe your staff out in a single hit. Even with probably the most sturdy tools on (that you just get from boss fights, discover on the planet, or purchase), you’ll want to grind for ranges; your protection and HP gained’t final lengthy towards these bosses.
Contemplating the battles aren’t that enjoyable – enemies are in a cluster collectively, and your characters are simply footage on the backside of the display screen – this was annoying. There’s an auto characteristic for the battles, however the characters aren’t that sensible. They’ll solely use normal assaults. It wasn’t too unhealthy to make use of for grinding, although.
I favored the graphics and the general world. The character sprites had been charming (the females had garments on), and the world was enjoyable to discover. The music was good too, however the soundtrack was restricted. There have been songs for intense scenes, battles, chill scenes, and the like. However the identical track for every environment performed all through the sport. That is extra of a nit-pick, however I’d have favored slightly extra selection.
Total, Liege Dragon isn’t too unhealthy of a sport. Simply be ready to grind so much and throw many hours into it if you wish to make it to the top.
