Developed by WayForward, RWBY: Arrowfell is the latest video game based on the hit franchise.
With a canon story, original scenes, and even a new Jeff Williams song with vocals by Casey Lee Williams, it’s as true to the show as you can get. While playing as uby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang is fun at first, the more you play RWBY: Arrowfell, the more likely you will become aggravated by its flaws.
The story begins with the team finding a mysterious device, which seems to attract Grimm. Putting him out of commission, they then seek to learn more about him, such as his origins. They soon get caught up in another escapade, where they even encounter a new group of Huntresses going by the name Team BRIR.
Anyone familiar with the work of WayForward will not be too surprised by the game offered in RWBY: Arrowfell. It’s essentially a 2D side-scrolling action game, with a light RPG and Metroidvania elements that add a bit more complexity and depth. In numerous chapters, you will visit numerous areas across the world map. And in each area you’ll engage in a mix of platforming and combat.
The problem is that it all seems pretty basic. You can switch between the four members of Team RWBY at will, using their unique Semblances. Ruby, for example, is the only character who can charge, while Weiss can create a magical platform that doubles as an attack. Additionally, they all share a limited moveset that is only slightly tweaked for each character.
With skill points to earn and use to power up your characters, making each one more unique seems like a missed opportunity. As it is, you can only focus on boosting the character you like the most first, quickly making him a force to be reckoned with. The health system reinforces this: all four characters share a full set of lives, so it’s not like you’re forced to switch between them to, say, get through a troublesome boss fight.
There are other problems with RWBY: Arrowfell, too. Much of it looks like a series of tasks to download; you’ll travel here, there, and everywhere to either collect a series of items needed to progress the story, or to simply satisfy a character you’ve met. And then there’s the fact that while you’ll gain or upgrade your abilities to access new areas of maps you’ve already visited, there are no minimaps to help you navigate.
Still, despite all these issues, you can still have fun with RWBY: Arrowfell, just maybe in small doses. The controls are responsive and sometimes it’s exciting to explore a new area, see what it has to offer. However, the game’s boss fights are the real highlight, challenging you to memorize their patterns and use skill and strategy to overcome their vile attacks.
If you’re a fan of RWBY, there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy RWBY: Arrowfell as a whole, despite some frustrations. We’d say it’s accessible to newcomers as well, although they might be a little less enamored with it due to unfamiliarity with the characters and the world they inhabit. It’s not a bad game by any means, but it soon becomes repetitive – and oversights, like an unavailable minimap, add unnecessary frustration.
