Sword Art Online Code Register Looks As Exciting as Data Entry

The upcoming Sword Art Online game for PS Vita looks a little underwhelming, but it’s downright charming next to Code Register, a free-to-play mobile title that looks like a cross between Final Fantasy: All The Bravest and something that is somehow even worse than that. To be charitable, Bandai Namco does promise that the game will involve actual decision making in combat, but looking at the trailer they just put out it’s hard to discern any meaningful difference from Square Enix’s infamously¬†interminable¬†clickfest. Terra Battle has paved the way for new and ambitious JRPGs on mobile devices, so it’s disappointing to see Namco create something this safe and boring.
