This game features battle gameplay elements found in games like Final Fantasy Tactics, Vandal Hearts, etc. which I have grown to love. Games like this are also very linear. You don't have to figure out where to go, you just move from one battle to the next There is a fair amount of battles in this game, which is nice. You also have to rely on strategy in battles, not just what your general character stats are. The story features multiple endings, so there is also a lot of replay value. The graphics were definitely......unique, but this time, the graphics were a little too wacky for my taste. This doesn't ruin the game however. The storyline is good and the twists are interesting and add on to the replay value. OVERALL RATING: 9/10
Looking forward to this SRPG
There's probably over 100 PSP games that could be classified as "action RPGs" but there are only a handful of handheld SRPGs for the PSP. From what I hear this is a solid SRPG and it's based loosely on Norse mythology! When it comes to RPGs, ATLUS rarely disappoints.
Sting's next masterpiece!
Sting's Dept. Heaven Series is the most underrated game series ever. Each game is an absolute masterpiece that is well made, well designed, innovative, fresh, and an absolute blast to play. It also has that unexplainable magic touch that cannot be found in many games. What makes the Dept. Heaven so breathtaking simply cannot be explained; you have to try the game yourself. Trust me, we are in for a real treat!
I enjoyed Riviera and Ygddra Union, and Knights in the Nightmare was pretty cool too. Looking forward to being able to play the next game in the series. Game play looks interesting and is bound to be as strange but fun as is standard for dept. heaven. Definitely worth a look even if you haven't played any of their other titles yet.
