Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion is an action RPG, the story of magic and a grimoire, and an entire world created to tell a story. Both sides of the story technically, in two separate games.
You start out at a war and the death of an emperor. Much of how the world works is actually hidden in the menus and is easy to find. It isn’t long before you find out The kings’ daughter Octavia will take over and a talking grimoire will help. Tho it does feed on souls.
The issue is while the game looks good, the gameplay itself is rather boring. You will mostly be mashing X, Square or circle and occasionally cast a spell with the triangle button. The sad fact is, nothing in this game was fun for me. The story was pretty much the same as usual in games. An evil entity controls someone, someone tries to stop it, an empire in danger. The combat is mostly button mashing with attempts at blocking attacks with L1.
The game also doesn’t do so well on Metacritic either for the PS4 or Vita versions. The game is just not well received and with good reason. Yes, it has its fans, but I wouldn’t count on you being one. Thankfully it is free this month on PSN, so feel free to try it and tell me what you think. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
