There are some games that you slowly build into. You’re introduced through a lengthy cut-scene to the wondrous world you’re going to spend the next twenty hours enjoying. You’ll get a insight into the main protagonist and slowly work out what their problems, aims and goals are. Then there are games that immediately shout “RUN” at you.

Taking charge of a quick witted, fleet of foot ninja is nothing new. Destroying numerous robots and escaping the clutches of an evil madman isn’t either. Should you be forced into any of those things, you’ll usually find that sitting back patiently, sipping a cup of tea, surveying the surroundings and carefully planning your strategy works wonders.

Hoping to capitalize on the recent success of The Force Awakens blockbuster film, they’ve transferred all the action into the trademark LEGO blocks for a fifth major adaptation from the Star Wars franchise.

While the story of Grand Kingdom is pretty ordinary, the voice actors are generally likable and I enjoyed the visuals, so it was cool to see things through to the conclusion. Though after I did, I discovered that there is some additional story-based questing available. The premise to Grand Kingdom is that you are the leader of a mercenary group and you are recruited into a mercenary guild.

In the end, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is a well-polished and fun game that should be considered owning it as long as you’re not put off by the Norse mythology, language or violence. Owners of the original game may enjoy the enhancements, but may want to hold off for a sale before buying it again. Newcomers to the series will find a lot to like here.

Grand Kingdom offers a new take on medieval tactical warfare. It's spin mixes board game strategy with turn-based Final Fight style action. Ryan Johnson at The Gamer's Lounge gets to take a spin with the title and reports whether it's worth your time.

Aside from the uneven animations, my only other complaint comes from the memo feature. I found it far easier just to keep notes on a pad of paper than attempting to write with my fingertip. This is not the best use of touch controls between the memo and the sometimes finicky puzzle inputs, but it is hardly a deal breaker either. Because at the heart of everything here however, is the narrative. I really cannot say enough good things about how well-written the characters and the stories are. I...

Root Double -Before Crime * After Days is a visual novel that is now available for the first time in English.
