    If you’re looking for an enjoyable RPG with some novel ideas and strong presentation behind it, Voice of Cards can easily eat up a weekend or two. It’s sweet and doesn’t overstay its welcome, even when I wished it would. While those factors aren’t enough for it to match up against the best-in-class competitors, there are many worse ways to spend a cozy fall evening than curled up with Voice of Cards.

    Voice of Cards mixed JRPG's and board games' elements to offer a fun pretty unique experience. It is improvable in and far from perfect, but its originality and world deserve appreciation.

    But those who take a chance on Voice of Cards might be surprised. Its tabletop style is endearing and a testament to the idea that gripping adventure transcends the need for cinematic cutscenes. Voice of Cards puts the "game" back in "role-playing game" in fun, compelling, and thoughtful ways that will delight players throughout their time with it.

    Voice of Cards is undeniably fun to follow, especially thanks to its frankly successful “board game” aesthetic. However, he fails to fully engage the player in his adventure, the fault of overly simplistic and intrusive fights. This leaves a very nice game, often funny and enjoyable to play, but unfortunately punctuated by moments of trouble.

    The great presentation and music is what really makes the game shine, but the card battles could have done with some more thought.

    Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars isn’t truly a card game, but a traditional RPG that uses cards for everything. The aesthetic choice doesn’t effect too much outside of the visuals but does give the title a unique identity. The gameplay of Voice of Cards is among the simplest and most straightforward to be seen in RPGs. It may be too simple, as battles end up feeling more like time -consuming chores due to the high encounter rate and lack of challenge or required strategy. But while the simple gameplay may not offer any challenge to RPG vets, the story and fantastic soundtrack help keep the game an enjoyable experience. The relatively short completion time is an asset in this case, making Voice of Cards a great choice when looking for a relaxing game to spend a weekend playing.

    Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars features a striking and quirky tabletop style with delightful gameplay that doesn’t overcomplicate things. While the storyline won’t necessarily grip you, it’s told in a fun and interactive way and this is an easygoing pick up and play title that you can enjoy at your own pace. You won’t be challenged when going card-to-card against your enemies, but you can still find the thrill of a frustrating hand if you delve into the minigame.

The card and tabletop aesthetic is very pleasing, and very well done. I love the use of the various dice to show %, chances of effects happening. It feels like an elaborate D&D session with the narrator voicing everything. The gameplay itself is pretty simple, dungeons aren't anything crazy, but it is this simplicity I truly enjoy. When many games try to go bigger and grander, Voice of Cards keeps itself focused and is just a fun experience. The music is also fantastic all around. It all fits so well into the areas. I definitely recommend checking out this game. I feel $30 might be a bit steep, I think it should've been a $20 game, but the polish and experience is there to back it up at least. Expand

Its a Mix between a D&D Tabletop and a classic JRPG with a Cardartstyle something like Paper Mario. It took me around 18hours to see everything the game has to offer. I'm not a fan of Sidequest but i squeezed everything out of the game because i really loved it so much. I recommend to play the Demo because it is a Sidestory of the game which is not in the game itself. As a Nier Fan download the Nier DLC you will like it. The Game is a bit easy that's all that could be better. Hopping for a Sequel or a DLC. Story was great the Music was even better. There is also a little Cardgame in the Game, would be nice if it's getting an Onlineplay Option to playing with friends. Expand

Be warned, it is not a card game at all, but a classical turn based JRPG. The game is nice but very simple and basic despite its world made of cards.

    Positives :
    + Nice art style with pretty well drawn cards
    + OST is a blast (close to NieR OST)
    + Discovering the world map with cards which are unveiling themselves around you
    + Narrator's voice is excellent (either English or Japanese)

    Negatives:
    - Mechanics are too simple
    - Way too easy with no difficulty setting
    - Rather short (about 12 hours to see a first ending)
    - Story is very classical
