Raid: Shadow Legends Review – The gacha RPG to rule them all?

It’s our belief that if you’re going to develop a new game in a well-established genre, you should at least try and bring something new to the table. Otherwise, what’s the point?


It immediately reminded us of the age of magic, an absolutely stunning entry that launched just last year on Android. While that, in itself, was pretty bog-standard, it at least offered something different visually. In a genre that had, up until the point, been pretty obsessed with anime, the more adult Tolkien-style fantasy of age of magic at least offers something for those that don’t really care much for huge-busted cartoon teenagers in skimpy outfits.

The gacha RPG is hardly lacking in new Entries-Google Play is full to bursting with them. If we’re being completely honest, we’re downright fed up of them. For the benefit of the few of you who haven’t come across one yet, a gacha RPG typically challenges you to collect hundreds of different heroes, create a party out of your favorites, then battle your way through an endless supply of turn-based battle.

You’ll level them up, equip them with more powerful gear, and, eventually, participate in a variety of different modes, including PVP, raids, and events.

There’s also very little actual gameplay thanks to the option to auto-play all battle. Incredibly, this is often the optimal way to play these games, as you’ll save a tone of time and skill doesn’t really matter anyway.

Why? Because stats are far more important, and the easiest way to boost these is to start spending real life money on upgrades, new heroes, or both. Given that you can really outright purchase a hero you want to which is where the gacha element comes in- these games are basically no better than loot boxes.
