First, I really really wanted to like this game, because I like Atlus (it developer) so much... however, Atlus just published the game, they did NOT make it. Second, the game was made 10 years ago on the Sega Saturn, then made 1 year later on the PS1. Third, the game was bad then, and still is... you journey through the same dungeon over and over and over, just with different turns or colors. Fourth, anyone who is judo-christian will be very offended by the story, especially the endings (find them at YOUTUBE). I say don't waste your time on a 10 year old game!
I was excited to play the game. It looked pretty cool, great anime sequences, and a dark atmosphere (which is nice considering most of the other Wii titles). But I could only play it for a few minutes.
I can't really give a full review because I never made it past the first tower you go into, nor did I want to try. I might have wanted to try, had I not ran into the training grounds. I completed the first tower, but found myself stuck in the tower with no where to go. So I ran around trying to find something that would kill my character, only to find a frog that would jump and take about 2 of my 140ish hit points away, so I went and did dishes while waiting to die.
After the long and oh so painful death from the frog, I found the training guy. Oh this guy might be able to help me progress I thought. Wait a minute, this guy just said "God D$#$#$". Hmm..odd for a game to use that particular phrase. Meh oh well, keep going. The same guy talked to me about 15 more times, making sure to include that same phrase every single sentence regardless of the situation. Like "Put on your cloak God D$#$##". So power off, return the game.
I wasn't offended of the language. Just that one phrase I can't support anything of. Sad that the developers had to include that, however, I guess it does go in with the story considering you are in basically h$ll in the game. Good ideas, lack of really any variety in moves. Pick up a sword and swing it or throw it. That's pretty much it from what I experienced. Maybe later there would have been more, but I just didn't feel comfortable hearing that phrase every 30 seconds.
