Stranger of Sword City is a dungeon crawling JRPG. It’s full of anime tropes, turn-based combat, sprawling dungeons, but none of it has very much depth. The story hardly manages to grab your interest. The battles are grind fests and the levelling and equipment system is all too generic. This game might work better as a handheld game that you can dip into for short bursts, but playing on PC doesn’t quite work.
Let’s start with the story. You begin your adventure as the only survivor on a Japanese flight and awaken in a strange land. You quickly encounter monsters, make friends with some of the locals and realise you have super powers. All of it shouts bland anime storyline and lands flat like a skydiver without a parachute. Interesting premise, but bad execution.
