Azur Lane Crosswave is a 3D action shooter developed and published by Compile Heart and we will be talking about good and bad about the game.

What is good about Azur Lane Crosswave?

The first one being the excellent character designs the main selling point of Azur Lane Crosswave PC Setup, is that it is a natural aim game of course.

This means that we get a game with all of our favorite ship waifu's not only are they fully voiced but a large chunk of them have 3d models models that don't even look that bad in game.

This is something that the game itself recognizes as you can take these models into photo mode and position them however you want.

But of course these models only look good because the character designs were topped here to begin with from the elaborate design of Yamashiro to the more simple design of Saint Louis all are excellently done.

And there's so many offered that there's bound to be one that you'll like I'm personally in a cocky fan myself although a cross wave does not have every character from the mobile game it does have quite a bit.

The decent poured once again idea factory has delivered us another decent compiled our PC port although I played most of the game with the controller I did try the mouse and keyboard controls and was actually surprised by how well they worked.

It granted they're not ideal but they're far better than what we'd get with other ports looking at yuko a tecmo they're also completely rebind a ball on top of that.

So you can customize them to your liking aside from the controls the optimization is also worth noting I made it through the entire game without running into any crashes freezing FPS drops.

Or really any technical issue at all I was a bit disappointed that the only graphics settings are window resolution options but the game looked fine at 1440p regardless it could use some improvements like being able to change button prompts.

And anti aliasing but for a PC port of a Japanese ps4 game it's serviceable and now unfortunately that solved the pro.

What is not good about Azur Lane Crosswave?

So let's move on to the cons the first one being the abysmal core gameplay unfortunately a one of the game's major selling points its gameplay is also one of its biggest problems this is due to a number of reasons.

But the main one would have to be just how bare bones it is each mission is structured in the same way takes place in environments that hardly differ from one another.

And can all be completed using the exact same strategy all you need to do is move in circles and spam every attack you have as they come off of cooldown there isn't really anything else to do beyond that regardless of what enemy you may be facing.

And who you may be playing all you need to do is circle and shoot circle and shoot and repeat until the enemy is dead the most enemies will not even be able to hit you when you're doing this and the auto man takes care of the rest.

So you're pretty much set for anything that the game may throw at you of course some may say that the difficulty level can remedy things here.

But it really doesn't you can change the difficulty but all that does is make enemies massive bullet sponges much more so than they already were the rewards.

And story outcome for each battle are the same regardless of what difficulty you play on so there's really no point in playing on the hardest difficulty unless if you just like circling and shooting more than the average person.

There's absolutely nothing else to the gameplay and unfortunately it really brings down the experience and that will lead me into the next con the limited gameplay variety the other issue with the gameplay is simply how limited it is in terms of what is offered.

As I mentioned before each mission is structured in the exact same way you're plopped down onto a map and told to either defeat a certain number of enemies defeat a boss.

Or multiple bosses or survive until a certain time that's as far as mission variety goes enemy variety is just as bad with only about four or five different enemy types present across the entire game a lot of battles will have you go up against another character.

But those are pretty much handled the same way regardless of what character they are it doesn't matter if they're a destroyer.

Or an aircraft carrier you just use the same circle and shoot strategy to win this lack of variety doesn't just apply to enemy characters though it also applies to those that you can actually play each character has two primary attacks.

And two skills that can be used in battle these vary depending on what category the character falls into destroyer like Cruiser etc.

But beyond that there's little to differentiate between them in fact the only thing that differentiates those within the same class are their visual appearance.

But regardless of what class you choose the gameplay falls into the same formula so it hardly even matters what you picked by the time you've played through the first four or five battles you've seen everything the game has to offer in terms of variety it's honestly pretty disappointing.

So moving on to the last con and that would beat these subpar story elements I feel as your lane cross wave it needs a massive disclaimer on the store page so that people know what they're getting into.

I say that because despite all of the bad things I just said about the gameplay that gameplay is actually only 20% of the game you may be wondering well what is the other 80% well that other 80% consist of visual novel scenes.

Yes this is a game that is far more visual novel than it is action game contrary to what the marketing makes it out to be in fact it wasn't uncommon for me to read through 30 minutes.
Or so of scenes before I got to the next battle considering that the majority of these battles are completed in under two minutes.

You can imagine why I think the store page deserves a disclaimer however my complaints aren't with the fact that the game is a visual novel in disguise viens are one of my favorite genres after all rather it's that the VNC it's simply aren't that good.

The game tries to tell I semi serious story but it's just so generic and predictable that it's honestly hard to care for and what it isn't telling a serious story it's padding its game length with pointless fluff scenes.

If anything the most enjoyment I got out of the story were these character interaction scenes but that's only enjoyable to an extent as a background story to an action game it's definitely serviceable.

But for a game that is largely composed of VNL scenes it simply doesn't cut it I can't say that I expected the game to have a good story as this is as your lane we're talking about and I'm sure most don't play for the story.

But when the majority of the game hinges on it one would at least expect something interesting with all of that considered.

Final Words

I will be giving as your lane cross wave a score of 3.5 out of 10. Azur Lane Crosswave PC Setup, is a game with a number of problems its gameplay is boring lacks variety.

And the story segments aren't all that good either sure it has the excellent character designs that helped popularize the mobile game and is a decent PC port all things considered.

But I find it hard to recommend even to existing fans you'd have to really be into as your lane to get much enjoyment out of it so if you're not already a fan I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

But it is pretty fun now as far as co-op goes I played with three other people so was a full lobby of four people and we were actually playing the weekly event it was on medium.

And it was pretty easy to be honest with you but to be fair it is the first level in the game I do actually have a tip for you guys to have a more intense experience.

Zombie Army 4 Dead War PC Setup, actually offers different customization as far as how much aim assist you want so you can either choose weak strong.

Or actually turn it off if you want to and you can actually turn on and off snap to target etc now one thing I hope they add in the future is actually deadzone sliders. So we can actually choose inner dead zone and outer dead zone just to fine tune it a little bit.

As far as game modes I would say 95% of Zombie Army 4 Dead War PC Setup, is the story campaign and you can play solo or with up to three other people.

So this was all about Azur Lane: Crosswave PC | 3D Action Shooter Game Azur Lane: Crosswave for PC Review
