"A solid JRPG that offers some great storytelling, and I particularly enjoyed the strong emphasis on friendship and loyalty."
"There are plenty of things to see and do here, with a great campaign, multiplayer, and content creation tools ensuring additional longevity."

"There was a lot of dying and yes I found it too tricky at times, but the combat and the action was always engaging."
"Recommended to players who like a challenge and enjoy roguelikes and/or arcade shooters. If you're after a farming game, however, you might want to look elsewhere."
"We liked the atmosphere that the game was able to build - the graphics, premise and sound design all build a freaky and intense experience."

"All in all, we had a nice time with this unusual little sim, although it would have been nice to have more content."
"It tries to do something different and we applaud the intention. That said, it felt a bit too lonely and frustrating at times."
"If you're a big fan of Theme/tycoon titles and funny games in general, we heartily recommend that you book an appointment to see this one."
"It looks and feels great, most of the time, and if you're a massive fan of the sport, you should definitely check it out."
"A stunning game with a great soundtrack that tells some interesting stories, but it's not a tactical masterpiece."

"The story is magnificent, it boasts a brilliant soundtrack, and there's a great range of animals for you to take control of."

"It's one for the fans, and there are some good features in there, however, strange AI decisions made the missions a bit too easy at times."

"All in all, Spiders has created a solid addition to any RPG lover's digital shelf."
