This game wraps up the Cold Steel series nicely. Spoilers: It is initially a departure from the rest of the series, where this is the first time that you don't control Rean for a prolonged period of time due to plot reasons. However, this allows us to further explore the the supporting characters' motivations and drive quite well leading up to the rescue. The soundtrack is amazing as always, and the animation of the opening theme is on point. However, one thing to criticize is that it's more difficult in this game to keep you characters leveled appropriately compared to cold steel iii for example. Overall, highly recommend this game and the series as a whole to anyone even remotely interested in JRPGs.

I had high hopes for this game after the cliffhanger ending of Cold Steel 3, but instead of focusing on what is supposed to be a world war, you end up running around the country for dozens of hours, completing countless filler quests before anything of relevance can actually happen. And when the war finally starts, you're already in the final chapter and see like a minute of it before you enter the last dungeon. And by that point, the game has ruined its own story multiple times, as the devs decided that a war story should not have any serious consequences. The only saving grace are the game's characters, but even they can't save this mediocre conclusion to the Cold Steel arc.
