I am a huge 80s fan of movies like ''Back to the Future' or 'Ghostbusters'. br>
Always. . br>. . . I think the game is a very very very good game. xD
No now times Real:
I find this pixel art style extraordinarily beautiful and also... not so penetrating as with other games in these ranges. I also find that the story with a relatively early turning point (after about 2 hours of play) grabs you pretty fast. I won't mention that plot twist by the way at this point. I also find the background music atmospheric and so far very appropriate to the respective situation. I haven't noticed a single flaw yet. But what I have to emphasize at this point is that the game reflects many parallels of 'Stranger Things', which is a matter of opinion, whether it is a plus or a minus point. With me it's a big plus :D
All in all I think that 'Crossing Souls' is a very successful, varied, thrilling and exciting RPG. br>
I give 10 out of 10 points for the previous 2h playing time because I just think it is nice (20th repeat xD)
Who is still not sure, I can highly recommend the free demo. You have about 1h playing time at the demo, which is really worthwhile for a demo, you get a super insight into the characters and the scenario.
