If you like the previous two OG games, or you have played the SRW series, you would like this game. Combo battle system + Robot supports +Fancy cut-in animations + original voice over + RPG = SRW + Xenosaga = A great game you can't miss With Bandai Namco (Xenosaga and Tales of XXX series) onborad with Banpresto (the creator of SRW series), it combines the stylish character design of SRW with quick-paced battle system of Xenosaga / Tales of XXX series, the result is a nice mix with cool characer animations and flashy combos like any of the fighting games. Even you haven't heard any of the OG / SRW games, it won't be a problem for you. As the story and characters are mostly original (Bandai Namco is now part of the development team, therefore Kos-Mos is now an "original" characer), therefore ensures an great experience for anyone that enjoys an anime styled RPG. The world map is a little bit rough, compare to the fancy battle scenes, however as most of the game is focusing on the battle part, it is not really a huge down part to the game. The game has great voice overs, if you like Janpanese animes, you will recogise some of familiar voice actors. Compare to other two SRW games on DS (only sold in Japan), Endless Frontier is the first DS SRW game to have voice overs. The music for the game are also great, some of them are from previous SRW games, if you have played them you will feel instantly at home. For first-comers, they are great musics that will kept you going. The fighting style is more like that of Xenosaga + Tales of XXX, is turned based, but you can make multiple moves in one phase, you can chain your own skills together or with other characters, and you can cancel your action at certain point to gain a bonus. Timing is important for creating massive combos, and you have the freedom to customize the skill sequence for your favourite combo. Althogh the game is not a smash-hit RPG, and it could get a little repetitive later on, it does have lots of intereting elements to explore, if you like anime styled RPG and robot battles, this is the game for you.
