Worst RPG ever.
Whilst the manga style graphics are pretty decent, the rest of the game is unfortunately terrible. Combat is tedious and essentially requires a guide in order to fight monsters since you have to correctly target certain body parts in order to get any respectable amount of damage, the problem is you only have a small amount of CP points which are used up each time you attack a body part, and each monster has a set pattern which the player must discover in order to pretty much kill the monster and these points regenerate extremely slowly. Since most monsters have a minimum of 5 body parts, most usually have more up to a maximum of 10...you can easily use up the points fast, each combat round you automatically regenerate 3 points...which is nothing when on average you need a full amount per fight..
If the combat was more traditional then this game would have scored much higher but NIS opted to try something new, and it just doesn't work, which is a shame because everything else about the game isn't too bad.
Good but not great
If you are a big fan of Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts. and other rpg games this one might be worth a try. It has a unique gameplay I haven't seen before after playing several ones so it gets points for that but the appeal ends about there. It's worth trying but it's about a 2/5 star game.
Looks good but...
i love rpgs for some reason i cant describe. this game looks really good and i like how it says it isnt a mindless game where you beat up enemy but a strategic game. probably wont get it unless i play demo first. if it has multiplayer then ill definently get it, if not i probably still will if i like demo
For true jrpg fans only
this game has decent gameplay, it could be a bit confusing but u just have to attack the body parts of the monster your fighting and you,ll be okay. If u get lost just search youtube. the graphics are great in my opinion because im a anime fan, please remember jrpg fans only because the game can get very frustrating if u dont understand role playing and strategy. if u love to grow levels and want a really cheap rpg game, get this and the trophies are easy because there are only 19 and all you have to do is kill bosses to get them :)
I don't know about this..
I also am a huge rpg fan, but this one seems too much like the others to come out for this platform. I will not outright deny a good play through. I'm just afraid that just like the other recent rpgs that ill blow through it in a week. However koei has put out some decent games in the past. I just am not too sure about this one..
Great Game! Highly Underrated.
This is a Great Game and very very Underrated. I would Recomend it to anyone who likes RPG Games.
