Great conceptual work. Appearance is awesome. Gameplay couldn't be worse. If you like the be forced to have immaculate timing for very drab reasons, you might like it.

Even on easy mode, the combat was far too difficult and involved memorizing many different buttons for different combat functions. Game seemed to revolve around combat and fight scenes much more than the original which was more based on adventure and exploring than on fighting.

Also disappointing was that there were very few save points. When you lose a fight, you often have to repeat playing a chunk of the level that you previously already played through (since there were no save points before the fight). After you lose the same fight five or six times and have to replay 5 minutes of the game you already beat every time just to get back to the beginning of the fight, it gets real old real fast. It also demonstrates the lack of respect the developers had for anybody's time who wastes their time on this BS.

There were a few times I played for a half hour and turned the game off, only to play again the next day and find that none of my progress had been saved. Apparently that is not enough time to put into a level to deserve to save your game or something?

I returned the game early as I am busy and I only have a few minutes a day to play, and got tired of replaying parts of the game to catch up to where I lost a battle. I guess after 6 good games in a row you are bound to get a bad one.

The only good things about this game are that it is visually interesting and the sound is spectacular. So if you have a big tv and a great surround sound system it is impressive, but only if you have the patience to deal with the lame combat setup and infrequent save points. So unless you have enough time to sit there for hours and hours on end, then I seriously would not recommend this game to anybody.
