I like RPGs but I just couldn't get into this game. The plot was weak, the graphics were mediocre, but what ruined it for me was the menu system. You have all these badly laid out menus to equip your character, use items, etc. They're hard to read and navigate and they just started bugging me on top of an already weak game. I lost interest.
This game is kind of amusing to me since it honestly feels like the story is apologizing to the player that it has to get in the way of killing things from time to time.
And honestly it isn't entirely a bad thing. The game's greatest strengths lie in its battle system and co-op allies that honestly help out. And appropriately enough the weakest points are everything to do with the story (the sordid dialogue, the non-existent contrived plot, the fake olde tyme speech, etc).
So, what I'm getting at is if you want a game where you just jump into a fantasy world and start killing as many big monsters as possible with the courtesy additions of armor and stat upgrades for yourself and this party - you owe it to yourself to at least rent this game.
