YMMV / Crimson Shroud

  • Enjoy the Story, Skip the Game: The story is actually really nice, as expected from Yasumi Matsuno, the gameplay? Yeah, unless you like playing with Tabletop figurines, it's going to be boring as hell, let's be honest.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: Who the hell decided that making necessary Plot Coupons into insanely rare item drops that can only be triggered by beating enemies in a specific order was a good idea? Yes, Level5, of course it's entertaining to spend hours wandering aimlessly and reading the same room dialogue over and over because there is absolutely no indication of where to go or what to do to progress in the game. And once the player surrenders and looks up the answer, it's also very enjoyable to repeat the same battle over twenty times because the necessary item refuses to drop. Excellent work, five stars for that.
