Gameplay

True to lớn form, Crystal of Re:union plays like your usual free-to-play kingdom builder. You are given a danh sách of structures, units, và objectives to lớn tick off your task list. Also typical to a lot of other titles of the same genre, you’re going lớn spend your time building your kingdom by upgrading these structures as you progress.

However, one of the biggest difference Crystal of Re:union has compared khổng lồ other titles is the emphasis of building up your “hero” partner. This hero partner of yours is based off real life mythological and historical characters.

You can use your heroes to lớn defend or attack creatures and join your army in looting resources. You can also create equipment through the blacksmith in your castle for your heroes. Another nifty feature of the heroes in CoR is that your nhân vật can also provide bonuses khổng lồ not just your combat power, but also to lớn your resource production and other non-combat related skills. This forged equipment can also be upgraded and also provide combat và non-combat related bonuses.

Other Features

You may notice that the majority of this review is focused on the hero feature CoR has, và with good reason. It seems that Gumi focused all of the nội dung and features on the heroes, such that the rest of the trò chơi feels just like the run-of-the-mill smartphone sim-strat game.

The questing system, guild system, combat and farming system all adhere lớn the already abused gameplay system you’d often find in other similar titles. This doesn’t mean that the adopted systems aren’t any good. It’s just that if you’re looking for something interesting or at least trying to lớn look for a more interesting sim-strat gameplay system and don’t care about the game’s fluff then Crystal of Re:union is not for you.

Focusing on making something different

I really appreciated Gumi’s attempt on making things interesting with the addition of the hero system. The execution though leaves a lot to lớn be desired.

As you progress through the game, it’s understandable that it’ll be a slog to build up your army power, resource generating structures, & overall research levels. However, the addition of the hero system adds another layer of yet another tedious processes games like this have. As you progress into the later stages of the game, each random character in the base is going to be more important lớn increase the friendship level if you’re the type who needs to know how the story progresses. Thankfully, those who aren’t into this kind of fluff can opt lớn just increase your nhân vật level and focus on combat.

Of course, there’s always the option lớn just spend cash on the game. Yet it seems that Gumi isn’t having any of that, because you can’t use money khổng lồ increase your hero’s friendship level, và you have to lớn really spend time farming and tapping on the people in your city, or farm monsters, lớn earn friendship experience points.

Conclusion: Good (3.5/5)Solid gameplay partnered with really solid visuals, but lacks the imaginative gameplay you’d want khổng lồ an already overused simulation-strategy gameplay system.

Crystal of Re:union is a trò chơi that has tried to be different, & was able to lớn make the gameplay experience familiar, & at the same time unique, in its own right. With the tired game play features getting the Gumi treatment of looking & sounding good but with a grindy gameplay system, CoR is a title that’s an attempt to lớn balance these two elements & comes out with a grindy but playable foray into this version of Midgard.

CoR is a title that doesn’t bring anything new except the fluff nội dung that Gumi is most famous for – providing an engaging và semi-interactive experience that is structured in an already aging và overused simulation strategy gameplay system. If you’re someone who’s looking lớn get into sim-strat gaming, or is someone who’s looking for a bit more “fluff” in their sim-strat titles, Gumi’s Crystal of Re:union is a game that’s for you. However, if you’re someone who’s already burned out with the sim-strat genre as a whole & is looking for something new and inventive, then CoR is something that you should just move on from.
