The Alliance Alive HD Remastered is a remaster of a game that was released very late in the life of the 3ds. It was a real hidden gem with many people saying that it is one of the best RPGs on Nintendo’s handheld, but hardly anyone out there gave it the time of day as we were already into the switch era of gaming. Well, it has been brought back, and hopefully, more people will give this fantastic RPG the time of day and see just how special it is.
Daemons Rule The World
The story of The Alliance Alive HD Remastered is fantastic and a huge reason as to why I got so hooked on the game and wanted to jump back in and play it again. There is an evil race of beings called Daemon’s and after a cataclysmic event, they have taken over the human world and it has been split into different regions. It makes for a fantastic, high stakes adventure that just gets better and better.
The Way Of Warriors
Ok, so I want to stick with the story here. You see, The Alliance Alive HD Remastered does not have you playing as just one character. Instead, the story is spread over a cast of characters that come together to try and obtain a specific goal. You may think this will make it less impactful with no one character taking center stage, but that is not the case at all. Instead, you get a much larger world view and seeing events play out from different points of view makes it seem so much more epic.
Taking Your Rightful Turn
The gameplay of The Alliance Alive HD Remastered is very typical of that of your standard JRPG, but everything it does, it does very well. The battle system in the game if you were to see it in a video would seem basic, but it is fantastic. It is turn based and very skill based too, I had so much fun here trying to come up with the right systems to get the best out of the people I had in my party at any one time. The whole game has a large open and exciting adventure to go on and at first, it is rather focusses and seems rather small in scale, but when this opens up, it really opens up and feels like a truly massive world of adventure for you to go on and explore.
Are You Thinking What I Am Thinking?
So far everything about The Alliance Alive HD Remastered has been great and it is the best way to play the game, while it would be awesome to have the 3DS version in your collection, this remastered version is the way to go. Now, I will say that the visuals have been given a lick of HD paint and that really makes them pop, but man, this would have benefited so much with voice acting! I get why there was none on the 3DS, but at the very least for the cut scenes they should have been voice acted, they look great, but I feel that voice acting would have made them even better.
I would probably put The Alliance Alive HD Remastered close to the top of recent JRPGs that I have played and the original version I would say is legit one of the best 3DS JRPGS on the platform. I ended up picking this up on the Nintendo Switch, but I am sure I will end up getting the Steam version at some point as well. If you are a lover of JRPGs this is one game that you simply must play.
- I loved the story that was told here
- The way the story shifts between characters is very well done
- The turn based combat is exciting and fun
- This is a massive adventure with a lot of variety to the gameplay
- For this remaster, I wish that they added voice acting to the cut scenes
- The opening of the game may be a tad slow, but stick with it!
