YMMV / Anima: Beyond Fantasy

  • The Problem with Licensed Games: Most critics agree that ANIMA: Ark of Sinners is beautiful to look at, but utterly fails as a 2-D platformer thanks to its floaty, unresponsive controls and combat that ranges from boring to controller-throwingly frustrating and unfair.
    • Averted somewhat by ANIMA: Gate of Memories, which received mixed reviews by critics, with some very high praise balanced by abysmal ones, though the user reviews were more favorable.
