THE BEST GAME I EVER PLAYED!
I was seriously mesmerized by the pure awesomeness of this game! The graphics are awesome, the plot is amazing, the characters are TOTALLY loveable, and the monster fighting is WICKED! I have never had such control in a game before. The Book of Prophecy creates a whole new gaming experience. I can create amazing weapons, new assessories, different foods, and better monsters! I also love how you can become intimate with humans AND Spirits! The romantic encounters are TOTALLY adorable and that alone is enough to keep you going through the game. The Boss battles are Challenging but, thankfully, not totally impossible. You just have to learn how to fight them correctly and avoid getting hit! The diversity between characters is also amazing. No character has the same personality. Everyone is different in their reactions to you. This game has the perfect balance of action, creativity, and social input. If you have a DS, get Avalon Code! If you don't, buy a DS and THEN get Avalon Code!
Best game ever but a little hard
This is the BEST GAME EVER! Except for the fact that it is SUPER HARD, it is an AWESOME game! The beginning is great, the only bad thing about the game is that it is really hard and I'm still stuck. It may be hard, but I'll manage. I'm really looking forward to the end of the game though, since you get to create your own new world! I bet the end will be fantastic! I will edit this post when I finish the game (which is probably not going to be any time soon, considering that I'm still on chapter 5). Don't let the challenge get you down, it's a great game! I know that being stuck is frustrating and you sometimes just want to buy a simulatation game and give up on your RPGs, but if you don't, good surprises will greet you when you play. For me, I just give up for a few months and then try again. Here's a helpful hint: when you have a bunch of RPGs which you are stuck on, a light-humored simulatation game can help. Like Artelier Annie (I'm sorry if there are spelling mistakes), Princess Debut, or even the Sims! Good luck!
great game but kinda short...
i was in gamestop looking for another game to sink my teeth into, so i bought this game. it only took me a few days to beat it but its an amazing game. the storyline is okay and the graphics are good for a ds game, none of those pixels. some of the puzzles are a bit annoying and tedious but overall its a great game. i really liked the customization aspect of the game and am thinking of replaying, but the puzzles still haunt me. the controls are simple, using the d-pad to move around but in some boss battles it can be a hinderance. the weapons are cool, there are 4 classes:swords, hammers, projectiles (bombs and knives), and shields (if you can consider that a weapon). now that im finished with the game, i can say i cant look a ds rpgs the same way. i always end up comparing other games to this one. i hope that can make a sequel or another one like this. i'd buy it right away.
Great game for Rune Factory lovers!
If you liked Rune Factory I think you will enjoy this one! It has kind of the same concept in terms of the whole forging items to make them better. The graphics are pretty good and it has some cool music too. I think this game has a good challenge to it as well. Only because you have to remember what codes to put together to make a certain item and because there is not much of a tutorial in the beginning of the game so you pretty much have to figure out how certain things work on your own. The only annoying thing about the game is there isn't enough slots to hold available codes so when you need room in your slots to move stuff around you have to put the codes anywhere you can just to make room, which then causes you to forget where the one you need is and you have to flip through page after page to find it. But all in all, I think it is worth playing.!
Great Game, But Too Easy...
Avalon Code is definitely a great idea for a game, and it plays very well. The only downside to it is that it's way too easy. The idea for the code system is cool, and lets the player customize weapons, armor, even other characters and enemies! The graphics and sound for this game are both incredible. The story so far is okay, but I haven't finished it yet, so I would't know. The easiness is the only problem with the game. First, once you can use the Judgment Link, you can regain your MP, and so your health, much too easily, and at no cost. Also, the special attacks don't use any MP and can simply be used over and over. Generally, It's a great game, just doesn't offer much difficulty. If those two problems weren't in the game, it would definitely be my favorite DS game.
Best game i played.
I love this game, great music and the story is unique to you.The graphics are great for a ds game and the story is nicely balanced. Most ds games i seen don't even come close to this game either they lack in graphic or lack on storyline. There's only two things i wished this game had first thing i wished it had is wifi connection or some multiplayer mode in it and the second thing i wish it had is that it had a longer storyline or maybe something to do after you finished it because there isn't much you can do after the storyline is over either you can fight monsters, improve your weapon, go back into areas and try to get a better score, or just finish some puzzles that you left undone.But still this is a great game for anyone that likes rpg.
First of all this game is great for anybody that likes rpg games. the story line and events can differ depending on certain thing you do like giving presents to someone, and raising affection levels. there isn't much of a tutorial in the beginning, but after a hour or so you'll start to get the hang of it. it does get a little annoying though by switching from the stylus and the pad in battles when you scan something like a flower or a monster. the graphics are pretty good for the ds and the sounds are good too with a nice opening theme song. as you move on in the game there are more challenges and puzzles that you need to solve for moving on with the story or getting a new item. the customization in this game is AWESOME with almost an infinite number of combinations of codes to use to strengthen your own weapons and armor while decreasing the power and health of your enemies after you scan them. Avalon Code will take at least 2 weeks to finish ,unless your a hard-core gamer that plays like 10 hours a day, because of all the new things that appear like new areas, new side-quests, etc. the story line is just sooo interesting that once you played for a hour os so you'll be hooked on it, wondering what will happen next or just being anxious to further on the story line. this is just an all-around awesome game with fierce battles, odd twists, and romantic screens that will differ depending on what you choose to do.
I am going to get this once it comes because it is totally awesome when I some some of the game play in the trailer, however the game did remind me of Kingdom Hearts because I think the main character uses a keyblade as a weapon I don't know but I am still getting this game.
(long post but it's worth reading!) I got this game on a holiday break because I had too much extra time. Well, I'll tell you, if you've got any kind of time, you should buy this game. I especially recommend it if you like Sims, Harvest Moon, Rune Factory, Runescape (online), and/or Animal Crossing. This game has probably set my standard for other games because I thought it was very mystifying. The storyline was very intriguing and entertaining. All the characters included are unique and you can tell they put a lot of work into this game. Everything is customizable in Avalon Code, anything you 'code scan', anyway. From weapons to hair accessories, monsters to the new world, you can make anything the way you want it to be. You can't change your outfit or hair, but the customization of it all was enough. Fighting in this game was overall not too tough. I bet the final boss in all of thirty seconds with the right weapons, but otherwise, going through the game can be somewhat hard. The bosses and large monsters have a good level of challenge to defeating them. If you like games where you can level up, this game is good as well. You can also use the Spirits' powers as well as your own regular fighting (sword, hammer, axe, projectiles like guns and daggers, bombs, and shields). One con is that I wish it could've lasted longer and had more to do after you beat the game. After the official storyline is over, there's still plenty to do, but the store never restocks on anything else, there aren't many new sidequests, and the characters (unless you are planning on wooing the opposite gender) won't talk about much besides the fact of you defeating Kullervo (main boss). Overall: an amazing game with great game play.
Avalon Code is a great RPG game for anyone!!
Avalon Code is a great RPG game for those who enjoy puzzles, adventure, a bit of romance(optional), and fighting. Anyone who likes one of these, or all of them Avalon Code is the game. Great graphics, music and an interesting storyline and tough challenges.
