Now this game held alot of promise, but the game itself Failed at a few major junctions. First off, the Controls are very touchy and hard to use. The game itself is like the PS2 PSO games, but with two less trigger buttons to change camera angles, so that you have a harder time lining up your enemies to actually hit. Also even if you time your attack string just right, it sometimes doesn't recognize you hitting the buttons on time.
Next problem with the game was that you could create unique characters, but only if the person next to play the game didn't use the same race, class, and choice of 4 heads, 3 hair colors, skin colors, and 5 clothing and mag colors. I know its a ds cartridge, but even pokemon holds a lot more info than that on one ds cart.
My final problem was the difficulty. Most games with difficult control schemes try to ease you into the game by making the first few stages as learning stages, but this game starts out hard from the get go. I created my character as a the begginer type human hunter male, and still found the game itself to hard mainly because of lack of lock on targetting and having to change my directions every time a mob moved a split frame from where it was. Dieing was way too often, and level ups came mostly just in time to save me from my fourth or fifth death.

This game is all over terrible it starts off looking good with a nice anime opening with some pretty epic looking battles but when you start playing you see the eyesore graphics (even for the DS these graphics are terrible) and then you go into a overview map world and start doing the terrible fighting style of the game the combos are difficult to do and most of the time your character is missing, and thirty minutes later you see your first boss which is way to difficult for how low of a level you will be at. And as soon as you get a partner in battle you think that she`ll help you with your battle but she ends being more of an obstacle than the enemies she fights recklessly and is constantly dying and taking all of your potions. So in short the game isn`t worth anyones time its terrible the whole way through so unless you want to waste your time with a game that you`ll deffenetley hate don`t rent this game.
