QuickFacts

Critics Consensus: The stories are a tad uneven, and the grinding required to progress the story can be frustrating, but Octopath Traveler largely succeeds in balancing new and old JRPG mechanics. At the end of the day, this is a beautiful game with an absolutely phenomenal soundtrack.

“Never quite the sum of its parts, Octopath Traveler is a game with brilliant moments rather than a brilliant game.”

“Combat is the highlight of the adventure. The stories unfolding between encounters are uneven, and the grinding required to progress is a frustrating roadblock.”
