This fourth chapter of the “Trails of” series satisfyingly balances plot payoff from previous games with the introduction of a new cast and setting. It follows police officer Lloyd Bannings’ efforts to understand and root out the corruption in his hometown. It is a strong turn-based RPG with the slow-paced world building of a first arc title familiar to veterans of the series. While a strongly recommended title, Trails from Zero not a perfect place for new players to jump into the series. Many of the plot points will be lost on players who have not played the Sky trilogy.
