Pros: Art style Unique characters Simple fighting system
Cons: No tutorial Broken Save System Online competition
When I heard RPG/Fighting game, what I had envisioned was a game more like Puzzle Quest, where disputes are settled in a Bejeweling fashion. What a price you will pay for making this game out to be anything more than artsy arcade fighter with no innovation. This is a port that should have stayed in Japan.
The game features a few standard modes, such as story, arcade, survival and time attack. Story mode is very long, with lots and lots of text. Some stories are funny while others are very serious to the game's plot. Arcade mode is your average "insert a coin and see where you can go up to" mode. Survival mode is pretty straightforward also, with you fighting an endless supply of enemies.
The cast of characters are quirky and really feels out of place, but hey, its a fantastical story so it doesn't have to be in place. The characters are very well balanced where the heaviest character will be slow and has high hp whilst the fastest character will have above average hp. There is your special attacks for each character and a rage mechanic that strengthens your characters attacks.
The game starts out fine at first. You beat a few characters, and then you get to fight the boss. The boss will then become an uberboss, a boss that you cannot win under normal circumstances. You will be swearing in no time.
All in all, it is worth your rental. Some of the achievements are easy to achieve, where you just have to beat each character's story. Some achievements require you to do a specific action with a character. One achievement you would be proud of, if you don't break your television first,would be defeating the last boss by not using any rage.
