Our sister web site Push Sq., targeted on all issues PlayStation, gave the sport eight out of ten stars:
“The technique RPG style owes quite a bit to the Techniques Ogre franchise, which is crammed with lesser titles making an attempt to recreate even a fraction of its successful components. The expertise that lies on the coronary heart of Techniques Ogre: Reborn has stood the check of time admirably and, due to the swathe of clever tweaks and quality-of-life enhancements launched, will doubtless stay on the head of the pack for years to return.”
One other one among our mates VG247 stated this new model was “even higher”, awarding it 5/5:
“In a world the place we have seen Sq.

“Techniques Ogre: Reborn on PC is an important for tactical RPG followers with its deep gameplay, tons of customization, superlative soundtrack, and with how wonderful it feels on Steam Deck.

Our buddies at Eurogamer known as it a “terrific revival” and praised the most recent model:
“Even in the event you do not play this model, it is a recreation it is best to positively play.”
And the oldsters at RPGFan had been simply as taken with it – awarding the title 9.5/10:
“Techniques Ogre: Reborn is massively profitable in its targets to modernise an admittedly outdated recreation…it’s a nice shock to see Sq. Enix placing a lot delicate consideration into each aspect. Consider it like an outdated home. It wanted dusting; it has unique interval options that require a selected wooden stain, so it doesn’t rot. Sq. Enix has given this home an intensive renovation, utilizing the right instruments for each job and restoring the lustre you keep in mind it having whenever you had been younger(er). Within the context of this recreation, it’s an enormous victory, but it surely additionally makes me want they’d put a lot effort into different current remasters.”
