One thing that many RPG games have in common is that they tend to branch into different sagas and they usually have a lot of numbered and not numbered titles. But it’s strange to see one that states that it will be the last one in the series, and that is the case of The Legend Of Heroes: Sen No Kiseki IV -The End of Saga-. And when an RPG saga comes to an end you can expect a great closure of a story that’s been going on for quite a long time. So, what’s up with The Legend of Heroes: Sen No Kiseki IV -The End of Saga-? Does it live up to the expectation of being the last game of a great series? Well, let’s talk about it now.
About the game
A great curse has been cast over the Erebonian Empire after The Great Twilight, and an all-in war with the Republic of Calvard is imminent, now a lot of the future depends on the action of the remaining members of the old and new Class VII.
Especially now that the future is uncertain for Rean Schwarzer, AKA the "Ashen Chevalier", as he lost himself due to being absorbed by his ogre powers that went completely berserk.
Is this the ending we are all waiting for? What will happen to our heroes, and in the eternity of the Erebonian Empire lost forever? Well, you'll have to play The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki IV -The End of Saga- to find out the answer to all these questions.
Is it really the end?
Well, we might have overhyped this being the end a little bit earlier on this article. The truth is that this is the end of THIS saga and not the end of The Legend of Heroes as a whole. More branches and sagas will keep ongoing. But this is really natural among other RPG games like the Final Fantasy franchise. And the names tend to not matter all that much. If that was the case then the very first Final Fantasy game would have been the last one.
And speaking of Final Fantasy, these two franchises share a lot in common. Not only for the anime-like style of the art but also the turn-based gameplay mechanics. It's clear to see that The Legend of Heroes drew a lot of inspiration from the 3D Final Fantasy games, and that's always a great thing for most RPG games.
The story and plot of this game unfold with great pacing, but it can be a little bland, and when there's so much weight into the story for a game, you really do need it to be punchy. One great thing about this PC and Nintendo Switch release is that it has a lot of the great features added in the latter games from the franchise.
These features help a lot with the rhythm and pacing, as they added faster-paced combats, more areas and characters, different dialogues, expanded story, and even faster dialogue. Overall, it is a nice RPG, it's just not among the best out there.
- Great art and visuals
- Complex mechanics
- Great Music
- Enhanced pacing
- Bland story
