In the beginning 'Lost Sphear' is a good retro JRPG, which comes with an interesting story and a beginner-friendly game principle. The story develops however altogether only very slowly, since the main task mostly consists of running from one endless...
dialogue to the next, what already got on my nerves after a few hours, since the said is often neither particularly interesting nor relevant for the progress of the story and is also repeated countless times. This prolongs the game enormously. There is no voice output. That's another reason why it was difficult for me to develop a relationship to the characters, which was mainly due to the fact that you can't really recognize them due to missing sequences and close-ups.
Retro classics like 'Terranigma', 'Secret of Mana', 'Lufia' etc. did not have these elements either, but overall they were much more dynamic due to the better texts, the shorter playing time and the more varied content and graphics. Those who have a lot of patience, like classic fighting systems and like to read dialogue passages of the scope of a long novel while playing, can, however, access them without hesitation. For a few hours of entertainment and role-playing nostalgia, 'Lost Sphear' certainly.
