    Meatballsub has it right. Plenty to do, the new take on graphics is fantastic and it's non linear. Play the way you want. Be warned it's a very long game, and requires some grinding to take on the truely powerful Post Game/End Game bosses. If you just want to play the story and sidequests without all the extra bosses, it's very easy to do. I would welcome anything like this in the future. RPG fans should definitely pick this up.

    I found Octopath gameplay as dreary as it’s tiny characters and dark backgrounds. The story lines move slowly unless you you find a guidebook. Nevertheless, I plan to drudge on through until More engaging games come along.

    Octopath Traveler is an absolute delight, and is a must-have for anyone fond of retro-infused JRPGs in particular. Its lack of linearity in both a narrative and gameplay perspective may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but should be fantastic for those wanting something a bit different than the norm. Octopath Traveler is no doubt among my top Switch RPGs to date. My only hope moving forward is that the success of Octopath Traveler ignites a fire underneath RPG-centric developers that shows them what we want to see more of in the future, whether that is in the form of remakes of classic games or entirely new IPs. It doesn’t matter to me - bring me more quality, pixel-based JRPGs and I’ll gladly eat them all up.
