Anima: Gate of Memories is not a perfect experience, but it’s the type of game that the Xbox One really needs. The action RPG genre is seriously lacking so it’s great to see that this style of game is being represented on the console. Despite a few missteps, the overall experience was pleasant and although frustrating at times, the game never overstayed its welcome. There are multiple endings, a new game plus mode and more reasons to go back and play the game. Anima: Gate of Memories is the type of game that I can see myself picking up from time to time in order to visit that world once again. Xbox One owners looking to dive into a difficult, but fun experience should join The Bearer of Calamities and Ergo Mundus on their journey to stop the darkness from spreading. It’s an entertaining ride and one that I will definitely try again in completely different ways.
