Trails of Cold Steel is a turn-based RPG best enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Its plot has the player follow a group of military academy students as they confront the issues plaguing their home nation of Erobonia. Despite being the sixth chapter of the “Trails of” series, Cold Steel can serve as an adequate series introduction that will leave the player with just as many questions as it does answers. Definitely give it a go if you enjoy a game that relishes in slow-burn world-building (some may argue too slow), numerous NPCs to chat with, and simple but engaging combat.
