Video Game Review: Toukiden

visual

Plot:

The setting is Nakatsu Kuni which has been protected since ancient times by “Slayers”. These warriors have banded together to purge demons and other forces of darkness for one thousand years, thus earning their title as “demon slayers”.

Eight years before the main story, time and the heavens distorted and the underworld emerged into the land of man. A great demon rose from its gap and plunged the land into an age of calamity. The Slayers fought tooth and nail against the demon and its army for seven grueling days; they barely succeeded in their mission to save humanity. The great conflict was later called the “Awakening”, and the Slayers whom fought in it were appointed to help restore the land’s political realm.

The protagonist is a part of the new wave of Slayers who rise to deal with the land’s never-ending demonic forces. They reside at Utakata Village, one of the last lines of defense in the war between demons and humanity.

Review:

Toukiden is one of the most entertaining games I’ve ever played. I love the setting and music of the game. The game has 6 maps that you will unlock during your missions. The story of the game last up to 5 chapters. After chapter 5 you’ll finish the story of the game but there are still a lot of mission that you will have to complete along with quests and relationship status. There are 6 NPC that you can take with you during missions they will fight along your side. You will also form bonds with all 12 NPCs. My favorite is Nagi, she’s the most helpful during boss(Large Oni) battles.

The game also has a verity of weapons that you can choose from and different armors. You get to customize your own character of course. The game also has a Online co-op and single mood. The online missions are different from the missions that you play in the offline mood. Of course there is also the Ad hoc mood.

Most importantly the game is very fun and a bit challenging if you don’t have the right team. The story of the game is actually deep I didn’t expect that. It took me 20hr to finish the game and I was taking my time. The game wont bore you that was the most important part for me. Though compared to Fire Emblem: Awaking, Toukiden is short.

Rate: 4.5/5

The traversable world map, last seen in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, and special skills like Astra from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn return.

Review:

I picked up this game after finishing the demo. I heard about the game through [Nintendo Direct] and decided to try it. Once I started playing the demo I couldn’t story until it was done. I was hooked. Fire Emblem: Awakening is a strategy game with an amazing plot and amazing graphics. The game has so many features my favorite is the support feature. When two players are standing next to one another they can protect each other from enemies. you can play the game in two modes casual or classic mode. The classic mode is a total pain but the casual mode is pretty awesome. If you S supported a character from the opposite sex, you unlock a stage and find your child that came back from the future. The game is absolutely amazing there is so much content in the game and endless possibilities. I totally recommend it.

Rate: 5/5
