Running a gamut of musical genres from rock to techno, smooth jazz and everything in between, the soundtrack will burrow its way into your head and stay there rent-free for a few days. The voice acting is mostly good, too.
The weirdest monster designs ever (walking bouquet of flowers in high heels, anyone?) butt up strangely against the more traditional anime humans, but overall, Scarlet Nexus is a truly lovely-looking game.
When you are given the chance to bust loose with psionic powers and fast-paced combos, Scarlet Nexus comes to startling life. The only downside is that you'll be spending a disproportionate amount of time watching cut-scenes.
If you love sitting back and watching anime cut-scenes – many of which aren't fully animated – then you'll be in heaven. The story is completely mad, and doubles down on that with each passing chapter. More animated cut-scenes and actual combat would have been nice.
A really good spread of tasks across the game's two 25-ish hour campaigns means you've got plenty to do, but you'll have a lot of fun doing it. There are some pretty interesting tasks to complete in here, and a decent overall mix of objectives.
