Zanki Zero: Last Beginning
Top Critic Average
Publisher: Spike Chunsoft Co.
8 Clones, 7 Deadly Sins, Infinite Lives - Play from the POV of one of eight protagonists in each chapter and explore the dungeons, towers, and islands to uncover the deadly sins of their past.
Survival of the Fittest - Hunt for materials and food while fending off monsters in real-time battle environments, but don't forget to go to the bathroom (seriously, it's bad for your health and fatal for your party).
Live, Die, Repeat - With only 13 days in one life cycle, each clone's stats, abilities and capabilities differ from youth to old age. Depending on how you die, you can even earn bonus upgrades for your next life cycle. Take advantage of each life cycle to the fullest!

In the end, Zanki Zero: Last Beginning is a credible and entertaining adventure, but its potential to stand alongside its developers' best works is hampered by its systems and story's inability to come together and elevate the experience beyond the sum of its parts.
