Earlier this year, we returned to a war-torn Erebonia... but did this game live up to the hype?

I have made no secret of my love for the first episode, as it were, of the Trails of Cold Steel saga. Having spent over 100 hours streaming the game, my only criticism pertaining to it was that the ending battle was poorly orchestrated and not given…
