13 Sentinels has lackluster combat, but the story it tells is absolutely astounding.

“Enigmatic and unapologetic even in the face of its most absurd ideas, this is sometimes messy, sometimes boring, but always astounding.”

7/10

“Not at all what you’d expect from the makers of Dragon’s Crown, but as well as the expectedly beautiful artwork this has some of the most engaging high school melodrama this side of Persona.”

4/5 stars

“Beat by beat, you’ve seen elements of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim’s plot elsewhere before, but you’ve probably never played anything quite like it. How 13 Sentinels strings its complex narrative together is nothing short of astonishing. It operates like a great melodramatic sci-fi TV show, only reworked and shuffled into an interactive format, and it takes full advantage of it. And for that, even with weak RTS battles complementing it all, it’s an easy recommendation.”
