So this game is kinda cool, but that's really it. It's a real-time strategy game where you have to summon magical beings to destroy other magical beings on a 2D plane. The biggest issue is every map looking the same. There are structural differences, but visually the variety is lacking, so it gets dull to look at. The actual gameplay is quite slow and methodical, which can make battles drag, but it is still usually fun to figure out the best combo of summons to tear apart the enemy side. It was fun to play in a mellow sort of way, but it isn't particularly deep, and the story is underdeveloped and lame. All-in-all, not the greatest experience, but a decent enough game to check out if you're interested. 3/6

This game is pretty underrated and has no reviews on this site. Which is a shame cause I think it's worth checking out. So I guess I'll be the first.

I found it to be a pleasant surprised. As someone whose inexperienced with RTS, Pikmin aside I liked it more than thought I would. In some ways I like more than other vanillaware titles such as Odin Sphere and Muramasa. I think story the is better. I like characters better. The art is really nice but that's expected for vanillaware. Story it's basically about girl Lillet whose training to be witch and learning how to control the Grimoire. She goes to a school were you got teachers like half demon and a Lion man. Early on she discovers she in a time loop caused by the philosopher stone so naturally the plot is about her trying to escape it. And I find that really neat. Music was also nice even though the soundtrack is very small. I also really liked the voice acting with Wendlee Lee specifically it was nice hearing in a main role and I like Litllet she was cute. What I like about the voice acting especially in comparison to Muramasa and Odin Sphere is that Grim Grimoire for goes the theatrical style of voice acting from those games instead having a more natural form a speech. Which in my opinion makes this dub really great and better than those other games. Gameplay wise I honestly don't even mind the RTS gameplay. I wasn't sure about it at first. And I'm not very good at it. But I managed by. And it could be satisfying at times. I'm unsure how this game compares to other RTS games but I thought was good. The wikipedia page says the game took inspiration from Harry Potter for the plot and Star Craft for the gameplay and yeah that sounds about right. If that sounds interesting to you then I'd say check it out. Overall I found the game to be a pleasant experience. I was never to frustrated. And the game wasn't as confusing as I was fearing to be. So I recommend it.
