  • Explore multiple environments, time-travel, and the impact different choices have on the future

  • Solve time-bending puzzles that rely on the player’s ability to manipulate cause and effect

The most important thing I can say about Octopath Traveler is that it can restore a childhood-like imagination in you… if you let it. To get the most out of this game, you have to be willing to suspend your disbelief and fill in some blanks with your own thoughts. Don’t rush to complete it mindlessly… take your time with it, and explore at your own pace. If you let yourself be immersed into its world, both inside and outside the game (more on that later), Octopath Traveler will take you on a truly memorable journey. One that will feel like your own.

Wow, this is a hard game to review, particularly as you have to give it either a thumbs up or a thumbs down when all is said and done.

Okay, full disclosure: I played this during a mammoth replay session of the Legend of Heroes (Trails) games, in preparation for the release of the Geofront Zero translation, and Cold Steel III to hit stores. As a result, that may bias my opinion of this game, as I was used to a certain quality in storytelling, character development, and the like.

I bought Octopath Traveller hoping to be transported back to the golden era of Final Fantasy - ie Final Fantasy VI - but with the sort of QoL improvements that time has granted us.
