13 Sentinels is one of those games I'd never place on my wishlist were it not for the consistent praise.

Hahaha so true. One of the reasons I scroll through Opencritic is to find games like this. I remember back during the SNES/Genesis days games like this one, or MUSHA, or Crusader of Centy just fell through the cracks. All three are fantastic games that deserve to be played!
