This is the definition of a JRPG in it's most basic form. This game is very cliche in its design, somewhat simplistic in it's story, and uses A LOT of aspects from classic JRPGs (mostly Chronotrigger) but I think all of that was intentional. This game knew what it was and was happy with it. This game can be a very good introduction into more classical JRPGs and that's even evident in it's length. While most modern JRPGs have big, long, grand plots that will last for more than 80 hours like Xenoblade and Persona, I Am Setsuna takes at most 15 hours to beat its main story. That's even faster than the Mario and Luigi games. Overall this is a great game for someone looking for a classic style of RPG or for someone just looking for a nice entry point into the genre as a whole.

I am setsuna is an old school turn based jrpg.
the story is great and the game design is overall good. I just think they could have done a bit better on that part. But this doesn't stop me from enjoying this great game. If you like old-school jrpgs, this is for you.

A love letter to classic jrpgs. Simple beautiful scenery with an equally beautiful soundtrack, wrapped together in a surprisingly deep story. I Am Setsuna will remain a favorite of mine.

Its snowing the whole time and the soundtrack consists of piano only. You will definately be unimpressed you like the classical type of rpg that sends you to the desert, the swamp, the magic forest, the hot volcano, the gothic castle.... However this approach is deliberate and sets a nice tone, I played it in the winter maybe that helps. There is a sense of repetition but I wanted to see the story unfold and I was rewarded for my effort. I recommend if its on sale.
