Pier Solar and the Great Architects 

 

I wanted to love Pier Solar and the Great Architects after spending so much money on this new retro styled role playing game. I played this 2.2 gig downloadable video game on the Wii U. How is it retro games from the 16-bit era could look as good as Pier Solar and the Great Architects and clock in under one hundred meg?

To make matters worse Pier Solar and the Great Architects has no charm. It is full of venom, hatred, and bile. This home console video game is hard to play. The false gods, and arrogance of the main characters is horrible. Then the game play elements come up. Expect to constantly grind in almost every single area before making any kind of progress. What happens when you don’t? The game over screen becomes a constant companion. The grinding in Pier Solar and the Great Architects is worse than many 8-bit games.

I felt like I was trudging through Pier Solar and the Great Architects with all its bad language, violence, and blood. The turn based battles are tedious and mundane. You need to dull your senses and go through them just to get any progress in the extremely lame story. I could see some people defining Pier Solar and the Great Architects as torture.

The music in Pier Solar and the Great Architects is really good. That is one of the stand out areas in this downloadable only video game. The bad language is what brings the score down in that section though. Boss battles are insanely long, and even with higher levels your characters won’t do much more damage. Pier Solar and the Great Architects takes a long time to get moving.

Save your money for a physical copy of a better video game. Pier Solar and the Great Architects is not worth the time. Pier Solar and the Great Architects is a fine example of what not to do in creating a video game, along with what not do to in writing a story. I died early and often in Pier Solar and the Great Architects. I had to go back and grind some more. I would then try again. Sometimes I won, and other times I had to go grind some more.
