Here we have a game that is so over the top that it’s really quite spectacular. If you can name the excess, you’ll find it in Mugel Souls. An excess in colour? Check, this is one of the brightest games you’ll ever play. An excess in Moe? Check – the chibi characters and squeaky voices are as cute (or irritating) as you’ve ever experienced. And the combat? Oh yes, it’s excessive. The damage numbers can run into the billions (that’s right, over 1,000,000,000)."
