The cons to get out of the way are simply that: The storyline's shorter than I expected, it definitely leaves you wanting more of the series. The graphics are PSOne quality. Once you get these aside, the game is very fun, especially if you want a change of pace from most other RPGs. You get to play evil, (but you still have a heart, you just don't want to show) and that means you're supposed to cheat, especially if you want to try and become outrageously powerful. They throw out the concept of ending your maximum level at 99 and your stats are insane. Even your items and weapons have levels, both of which you enter in--literally--and conquer to make even better. The level of difficulty for the main story is up to you. So, a great deal of fun can be had with seeing how powerful you can make you and your minions. Levels aside, I found the twisted comedy of the game very entertaining. Sometimes the puzzle aspect of the games battles provided a bit of a challenge to planning, if you want to take the time to solve puzzles. I found this to be a game I can pick up at whenever and just have at it, and not take too seriously.

First off I want to start by saying I do not believe that the value of a strategy game really has nothing to do with graphics. This game could have had 16 bit graphics and I still would have given it a 10. I never have been a fan of anime but the humor in this game had me laughing from the opening till the closing scene. I actually felt a connection with the characters. The battle system is like Final Fantasy Tactics with a few +'s. Most def worth renting if your a fan of strategy games. Its like the blood of a newt + a pinch of bats hair...BOOM dood.
