TRIANGLE STRATEGY on PC is a good tactical RPG that works well on most modern computers – GeekTyrant

I was excited to play Triangle Strategy because I had heard great things about it. I enjoy the occasional tactical strategy game and Square Enix usually knows what they’re doing here. In terms of overall gameplay, they’ve done a really good job. I don’t know if there are truly groundbreaking or revolutionary aspects to the tactical combat system, but it works well and is easy to navigate. I also appreciate the different difficulties. The HD-2D art style is a very subjective part of the game. Some will enjoy it and others will not. I go back and forth whether I like it or not.

In Triangle Strategy, one of its strengths is the story. It’s a well-crafted one with good twists throughout. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I really enjoyed it. Plus, there are multiple endings that encourage you to replay the game a few times. Unfortunately, there is a major drawback. In my opinion, the voice acting really drags it down Triangle Strategy. I enjoy many of the voices and some of them give decent performances, but there are some performances that just feel dry and take me out of the moment. For example, your advisor Benedict always seems to use the same intonation patterns and tones when speaking. There never seems to be any variation in his voice to suit the mood. It doesn’t matter if he’s surprised, angry, happy, or just giving advice, every line sounds extremely similar. This is just one example of poor performance.

This poor performance in voice acting is highlighted by the sheer number of cutscenes Triangle Strategy. In short, the game feels like a very long movie where you occasionally fight or give you a few minutes to wander around a city. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing per se, it creates much more of a visual novel feel than I certainly expected, but with vocal performances sounding bland it really feels like a downer.

While many have played Triangle Strategy on the Nintendo Switch, this review is about the PC version. I will say that the game on my machine (Ryzen 5 3600, RTX 2060, 16 GB RAM) runs very well. Granted, you don’t need a powerful machine at all, which makes it very accessible and always a plus (I’ll include a screenshot of the system requirements below). Personally, I wasn’t a fan of the keyboard bindings that come with the game, but you can change them or, like me, just plug in a controller to use. There are plenty of options to tinker with and if you have a Steam Deck it’s verified and I certainly see the appeal of playing it on the go. Many of the story chapters are quite short, meaning if you only have 15-20 minutes that should give you enough time to jump in, do a chapter and then bounce back and get back to what you’re doing used to be. From this perspective, I’d actually say the Switch version might be better, unless you said Steam Deck or used Steam Link on a mobile device.
