Octopath Traveler reviews and comments

I wish I could have let myself get lost in Octopath Traveler. The music, the art style and the engaging combat all made me desire this all the more, but I just cannot commit myself to the hours of grinding that this game would require and that is something to with my taste shifting towards shorter, more curated experiences.  
7/10

+ Unique beautiful visual style; strong musical score
+ Intuitive combat with just right amount of complexity for JRPG newcomer
+ Chapter style breaks up nicely for portable play
+ Variety in character

- Story never grabbed me; no cross over
- Repetitive structure
