Title: Shining Resonance Refrain
Platform: Switch
Genre: Action RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: SEGA
Summary: I had low, LOW expectations on this from my general expectations of the Shining series in general, and I’m glad to see those expectations surpassed XD;
Story: Super typical and predictable, and cutscenes take kind of long to go through… Auto-scrolling would have been really appreciated. You don’t play this game for the story anyway.
Characters: The seiyuu cast is the top motivation for me to play this, aside from the decent gameplay experience in general.
Sound: 10. WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME ELEMENTSGARDEN DID THE MUSIC… I mean, once in a while I get tired of the anime poppy sound that ElementsGarden is typical for, but in the grand scheme of things, I LOVE IT.
Gameplay: I don’t think it’s fair to compare EVERY ACTION RPG to the Tales series as some people do, because Tales is on another league of its own (which I worship). Also, later Tales games have actual I-frame/dps meta to deal with…
This one’s just a neat take on the genre.

Marion is pretty unbalanced on the broken end, but I am fine with this because of Sawashiro.
