Top customer reviews
Story- Set in the modern world in a city. Interesting but kinda typical parellal world, highschoolers saving the world story...but is done well and keeps you interested. Also voice acting in main scenes (Japanese voices only).
Gameplay- ARPG style. Feels good, fast paced action combat with jumping, dodging, and close and ranged attacks. Free city and other unique location explorations. Side quests. Bond events. And more Ill need to discover.
Graphics- Its a falcom game so it may look outdated and ps2 like for many but I really like it, especially the character arts. Looks improved from their previous works (Cold steel games, etc)
Characters- Interesting and unique characters. Main cast look great and will have backgrounds/character developments. Tons of NPCs (schoolmates/supporters/extras) that have interesting dialogues and stories and they are updated as the story progresses.
Technical side- Performs really well at 30fps even in combat. Just small unnoticeable framedrops here and there but nothing bad. Loading times are fast for most places, around 10 or so seconds for bigger maps with more npcs.
On the other hand, neither cann be Aksys localization called "Good" nor the whole release can be called "Handled very well". The biggest pro is, they kept the original japanese voice cast and spared us with a low quality english dub (and Aksys isn't known for well handled english dubs). XSEED's english dub of Trails of Cold Steel is also beyond good and evil, so I'm glad they kept, most likely for the first time ever in a Falcom game, the original japanese dub.
There are a few typos and inconsistencies in Aksys translation. This won't prevent you from enjoying the story, but it feels lazy at times.
The biggest letdown however is how Aksys handled this release. Even for much smaller games like "Exist Archive" they made a big PR buzz via social media. The whole pre-release and the final release of Tokyo Xanadu was simply horrible. Don't know if they plan to solely focus on the more popular upcoming PlayStation 4 and PC Version, but letting the original Vita Version drown in big style was a big letdown by a once solid Publisher.
The european release of Tokyo Xanadu is a complete mess. Aksys promised last year to bring the Games retail to Europe, instead they gave Europe a strange UK only limited release with overpriced retail copies of Games like the "Nonary Games" or Tokyo Xanadu. The european pricing for the PlayStation Store is even more hilarious. Since this is a review published on the US-Amazon Website, I will not continue my rant concerning the european release.
All in all, Aksys messed up with the release and most likely only a handful of people will even know that this fantastic Action-RPG even exist. There is hope they will do a better job when promoting the upcoming eX+ version. This is not comparable with the efforts XSEED and NISA is doing.
If you own a Vita, give Tokyo Xanadu a chance, it's worth your time, especially after letdowns like Akibas Beat. Falcom isn't creating the biggest AAA Graphics, but over 30 years of experience in the Genre is enough to release a high quality product in terms of Gameplay, Story and an overall great prsentation. If you like to play on bigger screens and value more content, wait for the PlayStation 4 version.
