Really Bad

NO THANKS!

My friend told me this was a great game, worth checking out if you have a classic controller. I don't have a classic controller, I figured the Gamecube controller may work but didn't bother to look it up since Gamefly gives us the ability to rent games and send them back.

Tried the game for about 5 minutes but really couldn't find anything to like about it. Strong japanese video game vibe, weird looking grunting characters. The WII controls are terrible, so bad in fact that I wasn't even interested in exploring what the game had to offer. It is the first and hopefully last game I put back in back in the mailbox 10 minutes after taking it out, not sure it's a bad game, it's just definitely not a game that I want to spend any time with.

Welcome back to the 2000s. This game looks a little better than a Ps2 game. I recently bought a fantastic new TV, 55 inches and of good quality. I wasn't expecting HD, but this game was just visually unimpressive. The text was annoying and hard to read and each letter came with a very 00s gaming sound. I was just expecting something more..modern.
The controls were somewhat annoying, but I could deal with them. Overall though I'm glad I rented and didn't buy.

Game play is as described. Go out, kill stuff and then spend forever farming junk. The junk you farm is then put into a item box with terrible organization..you basically have to memorize 100s of icons..terrible looking icons. I found it fun for about 10 hours and now I'm sending it back.

This game has all the usual RPG elements. Graphics were decent as well, I didn't care for the Wii-mote controller for it. The game just seemed so typical & I just wasn't into another cookie cutter RPG at this time so I only lasted a few hours & had enough. So there you have it, my best, D.
