Outstanding JRPG

I must say, it's an awesome game and it reminds me alot like the Tales series. Although it may not be a legit JRPG, but it's awesome.

Purging is the action that can take the Reyvateil's clothes off. That's why it does have Partial Nudity for a reason. But it's a bad thing that you can level up that quick unlike other RPGs, though. Their voice overs are fine. I'm starting to like it. It may be perverted, but it's an outstanding JRPG to enjoy.

I had my doubts at first ,but as I started playing I found I deeply enjoyed the mechanics of this game. First off, this game is seriously one that matches its rating I suggest not playing if your deeply offended by the vulgarity and random innuendo that causes doubt about whether it's you or the game that is perverted, if you have problems picturing this heres a thought, imagine diving head first into an attractive masochistic womans head and solving her inner dilemmas, that is something you get to look forward to if you play...Who knows maybe you will like it as much as I did ahaha. A warning... I would be very careful on your decisions and actions and pay close attention not to oversave on a mistake because small actions can cause giant rippling effects to this games ending, however on a happy note, there is many endings to enjoy!!! My only problem was the lack of change to the characters weapons as you equipped new ones...

Ok right off the bat, if you don't like provocative dialog and images do everyone on Earth a favor and don't get this game. I'm glad a company has the guts to put a game out where not every character speaks properly and doesn't swear. I'd say about 70% of the game is oozing with some form of innuendo or racy comment. The game centers around the main characters relationship with the Heroine, who uses songs to aid the party giving bonuses such as attack power, resistances, etc. The twist is the more clothes she takes off (called Purging), the stronger her abilities. You build your relationship via dialog and Diving. Diving allows you to enter her mind and play through various events. As you complete the levels of her mind you gain additional abilities. Aside from the Heroine aspect, you can synthesize a variety of equipment from recipes you find. The battles are real time. As an added feature there is a Harmony Bar at the bottom. Ideally, you want to hit the attack button when the line crosses a high bar, which causes more damage. Sounds odd but it's actually really fun. Also, as you fight the Burst Meter builds as does the Heroines heartbeat. The Burst allows for a powerful attack, and the heartbeat allows for Purging. Unfortunately the game isn't very long even with level spamming and re-exploring areas. Nonetheless, it's a definite rent/buy.

THE GOOD
Provocative dialog & game play.
Good amount of humor.
Synthesis.
Twist on standard battle system.
Good graphics.

THE BAD
Semi short.

THE UGLY.
Nothing.
