To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have played the first 3 trail of cold steel and it was great. The fourth one put a great finishing touch to the series. I recommend all four games since it a one hell of a story together. And you see all character evolved and growth.
Writting and pacing is hilariously bad in this one. They really dropped the ball hard time. Can't say too much because of spoilers but mid-way through the game something important happens and they retcon certain details. This frustrated me and i stopped playing. The story doesn't make sense anymore and it just feels like they didn't know what to do with the cast anymore.
The game is perhaps a little longer than it needs to be, and it drags a little in the middle, but Trails of Cold Steel 4 provides a solid conclusion to not just the Cold Steel arc but other arcs in the larger Trails series. I don't really recommend this game to anyone who hasn't at least played the previous three Trails of Cold Steel games.
