Horrible

Typical JRPG garbage

Like every other NIS rpg I've ever played, this one is utter garbage. Meruru is another in a long line of horrible NIS games dressed up with pretty visuals. The usual nonsensical, annoying and juvenile characters and dialogue are here, along with shallow gameplay. It's like NIS develops its games for horny young boys, or maybe the developers themselves are. And to be quite honest, I'm sick of playing games where the main character is a female. I'm far from a sexist, but a constant deluge of scantily clad women, particularly the over the top anime ones that NIS specializes in, is not my idea of a hero. If you like pretty rubbish and your brain doesn't exist, then this is for you.

Ok game. Graphics are what you expect from the series, storyline is differant but cant say I like it. I wish they would make one of these games that did not have the 5 year time limit. Or if it did that it let you keep playing till you were ready to start over. Always feel so rushed.

I rented this out of the blue cause I haven't played RPGs in a while, but open starting this game I admit it made me want to return it. There are constant annoy cutscenes that gets between you and gameplay but as I played the game it became more fun and addicting with all the alchemy and what not. The story wasn't too bad I quess but not great really.
