Anima: Gate of Memories is an absolute gem of a game and I was stoked at getting the opportunity to review it. A dark fantasy RPG that combines platforming, puzzle solving and plenty of might and magic orientated gameplay, it sucked me in right from the word go.
You play as the Bearer of Calamities, wielder of the powers of Ergo Mundus, an entity sealed within the book you carry after a pact was forged in your youth. Left nameless as a result of that pact, you are initially tasked with bringing a fellow member of the Order of Nathaniel to justice, but just as you are about to seize victory, you are transported to a mysterious tower called Arcane. Arcane provides the backdrop for the multifaceted storyline of Anima: Gate of Memories. You learn that Messengers, entities of great power, have been summoned to the tower, which can only bode ill. Thus, both the Bearer and Ergo are plunged into a plot of intrigue and deception.
