This little gremlin of a title has one of the freshest and most delightful battle systems I’ve ever seen. Moment to moment, turn to turn, you feel like a chess master plotting out all your buffs, debuffs, and heavy moves. There’s nothing mechanically to waste your time. Seriously, there are no consumables and even dead party members get XP. Unfortunately, the rest of the experience is a mess of immature characters and bland story, and world design. Cosmic Star Heroine is also quite conservative (Government bad but cops good!) Skip the embarrassment of the content and play it on hard.
