Review: Lost Sphear

January 24, 2018 1 min read

You should probably know before reading this review that I consider Chrono Trigger one of the best games ever made, and Final Fantasy VI isn't far behind it. There's something about these late SNES Role-playing games that I can come back to again and again, and in my opinion they hold up pretty well, even if you weren't around to experience them when they debuted.

Lost Sphear is a deliberate throwback to Square RPGs from the late SNES era, and it accomplishes the goal of evoking mid-90s games that came before while still managing to learn from the 20 years of game development that have happened in the meantime. The problem is, it borrows so much from the past that it doesn't really innovate anything it can call its own.
