Finished Live A Live and got the true ending. I really enjoyed this game, much more so than I thought I would. The combat in this game is actually pretty unique. It’s turn based with an ATB gauge based on grid movement, so it’s almost a tactics game. I love the opening theme for this game and it shines much like any other Yoko Shimomura composed track, but the rest of the soundtrack falls pretty flat…. Which is rather disappointing. The total time for me to 100% the game was 20hrs36min. Without spoilers there are 7 different timelines you get to play, each with their own main character, story, and gameplay elements. No two chapters felt similar outside of how the combat system works. My favorite in particular was the Prehistory chapter and my least favorite being the Near Future. My overall rating is an 8/10 and would highly recommend anyone who is a fan of classic RPGs to check it out.
