A note on professional reviews (and Inuyasha)

Here is what some people don't know: sometime game mags and publications receive "advance copies" of games to ensure that game reviews are written in a timely fashion. The catch is that the "advance" copy and the "Final" copy are sometimes different!
I can safely say that the sound of Inuyasha: Secret of the Divine Jewel was not glitchy and the graphics were not choppy. They just weren't all that great. Honestly, for a game based on a well-respected anime property, you would think that animated cutscenes would be the order of the day, like in Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy (which also had some decent voice work), but instead the go with the (well) animated sprite route. The only problem is that the sprites have scaling issues, causine the detail to sometimes be lost in pixelated blurs. The BGM (though not great) was not glitchy, but they went the "all-text" route instead of digitized voices. Expected for an RPG, but voices for the fight sequences would have been a nice touch.
The only guilty-as-charged matter is the storyline. Involving a "special" character made just for the game pretty much ensured a snore-filled romp. And all these types of stories pretty mch have the same ending(Hint: punch clear, go home).
In Conclusion, I can say that while the "critic review" may have been a little off-base, this was deffinately not a crowning achievement in RPG history. The most devout, Otaku-level fans of Inuyasha will get the most from this game, but, sadly, that is not all that much.
