Fight with crowds of enemies with slow progress through the levels over time gets boring. But the plot can hold you back. And although it is not a real revelation, it can offer several unexpected surprises.

Oninaki is a fun RPG with interesting combat mechanics that ultimately fails to reach greatness.

If you like anime style graphic game and a you want to play a light rpg game with loving music and intriguing narrative, you should experience Oninaki. But i can't deny that the combat problems that you may bother you in the game. In fact If you want Very good gameplay and deep combats, you can't achieve in Oninaki.

Oninaki is my favorite Tokyo RPG Factory game to date, with its gorgeous art style and melodic music and its more appealing storyline. It may be far from perfect, but it is certainly worth a look if you fancy a slightly different take on a well-established genre.

While Oninaki had its fair share of ideas that could have potentially made it a gem, it is ultimately undone by weak storytelling that doesn’t do its heavy subject matter justice and combat that is enjoyable at times yet held back by design flaws that hinder the experience.

A decent dark story surrounded by mediocre gameplay and other problems. Square Enix, it's time to give Tokyo RPG Factory enough money, otherwise their games will always be average.

Death is never a comfortable topic. Oninaki, however, doesn't just address it but wholeheartedly runs with it. It doesn't always succeed but it does make you think about the meaning of mortality — perhaps a bit too much as people die left and right. The combat also could be a bit tighter and the story overstays its welcome a bit. Beautiful visuals compared with a haunting score, however, make the game a treat to behold. Here's hoping Tokyo RPG Factory further builds on this for their next new JRPG IP.

I’m very torn with Oninaki. For a studio selling itself as an RPG machine, they did a real poor job with the story aspects of the game. Then we have a super fun and engaging combat system, tempered by a questionably designed interface, but we still have a beautiful audiovisual experience.

The game's unique world can't save it from mediocrity. However, despite its shortcomings, Tokyo RPG Factory fans who liked Lost Sphear will probably find some enjoyment, at least to some extent.
