I actually like these sorts of games because they make me feel good. It’s not your AAA title or AA title and it really doesn’t need to be, because it’s only concerned with telling a story and having fun. I have fond memories of the PS2 era of action platformers and action/adventure games and this title is a callback to that for me. I like it and recommend it.

My only complaint at the time of this review is that there are very minor, almost entirely missable collision issues with the geometry, which almost got me stuck on the first few levels.

With the Nameless Chronicles it would simpily be showing you a different perspective of the events that has transipried within the Towers along with giving you a backstory to a onimous character you rarely encounter known as ‘the Nameless’ or ‘Immortal’ (ironic that he dies and dosen’t have infinite HP, smh) and will traverse the towers as him as well as learn about his past.

For those who’ve playen Anima: Gates of Memories it’s not just recycled assets doing the entire same thing, while yes that’s inevitable (since it’s taking place in the same tower), new stuff would also be introduced.

Gameplay wise it feels like your ‘generic’ hack n’ slash, nothing too cluncky with combat etc. all seem smooth (my opinion).

For new players looking what to play this or just Anima: Gate of Memories, it dosen’t matter both of these stories happens simultainously within the same day/time etc. You’re just given a different character perspective so start with either ^.^

Excellent character action character action game/hack’n slash with beautiful artstyle and a gameplay that is almost as good as that of the Devil May Cry series.

First, if you haven’t played Anima: Gate of Memories, don’t even bother looking at this game. None of the story will make any sense and the difficulty starts more or less where the first game left off (and they’re both on the harder end). Don’t mind my hours. I played the game through on Switch. My hour of gameplay on PC revealed no technical issues.

This game is basically a stand-alone expansion of the first game (. Being that it reuses a significant portion of the areas and enemies from the first game, this feels overpriced. But if you liked the original game, you’ll like this one.

Overall, it is a weaker entry than the first since several of the coolest mecahnics are removed or lessened. The biggest of these is that you now only have one character. This means:
1. Less leveling and cusomizing options.
2. Less versatility in combat with less move options.
3. No health balancing between the characters, which I really loved in the last game.
You also only get to equip one weapon, which makes most weapons useless as soon as you get an upgrade.

Still, the core of the game is very similar and still works very well in this game. I was worried that the story wouldn’t be as good since it is an alternate perspective on the original story. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was almost as good as on the first.

I’m really not sure what to make of this game yet, but one thing is for sure, I’m enjoying my time with Anime: GoM-tNC. You start off as an OP, "immortal" protaganist which is cool, too many games start you off from 0 and make you grind up, nice to be considered "too strong" by core antagonists. Combat is real basic at the beginning and "boss" fights are waaaaay too easy, though im hoping it gets better as the game progesses. Storyline is probably decent except I haven’t played the original and this game clearly assumes you have experienced the 1st title in the series (which, to my knowledge, is the same story but a different perspective). Graphics are solid. Controller controls are easy enough (haven’t tried kb/m). My only real complaint is something that seems to exist in a lot of rpg’s these days, and thats strange battle perspectives. I like to have full control over my camera but when the game decides that certain fights use a locked camera while others let you adjust at will, thats just weird AF. I really really hate forced perspective fights, and this game has lots of them. Just give me full control over the camera. This aspect of modern (j)rpg’s really kills games for me. Nier Automata, probably a really great game, but half the game having locked camera perspectives kept me from ever finishing the tutorial level. I’m sure I’ll finish this game eventually, but losing control of my camera is too frustrating, so it may take me a while.

EDIT: If you’re gonna use voice acting, make sure they fully understand how to pronounce everything in your game. Different characters pronounce certains names differently. Listening to a conversation about Baal where everyone involved is pronouncing it differently is a huge oversight. Pretty sure I even heard the same voice actor pronounce it differently in the same conversation.

Anima: Gate of Memories – The Nameless Chronicles
More linear, than the first game, but still engaging action.
The story takes place at the same time and place as Gate of Memories from the perspective of one of the antagonists, the Nameless. There are new locations, as well as the ones, presented in GoM. Instead of the Link system, there is Thanatos. It allows to power-up and sometimes alter attacks. Different equipment is visible on the character. Puzzles are interesting, platforming sections are rare and much easier, than in GoM. The soundtrack and graphics are good, the controls are responsive and customizable, but there are no on-screen prompts for keyboard nor 5-button mouse support.

My review for Anima: Gate of Memories.

PROS:
can’t think of any

CONS:
• Lots of reused content
• Fullscreen effects like red or white flashes aren’t optimized for >1080p. You get a colored square instead.
• This game feels more like a DLC than a full game. Therefore it’s overpriced

VERDICT: 5/10

I bought this because "Anima: Gate of Memories" wasn’t half bad. But The Nameless Chronicles are a joke. It uses a lot of areas, enemies and even Bosses from the previous game. Only buy this one if you are a super fan of the first one.

Combat’s not very fluid,
Story couldn’t be less interesting,
World design makes me want to vomit.

Not outright the worst game ever, but even on sale I don’t feel like it’s worth $5.
