Bad

OMG this game is stupid

Turn-based Grid RPG...difficult unless you are adept at strategy. I was hoping for a more traditional RPG or at least a real-time combat RPG. I only made it a couple hours into the game, but after repeatedly losing against a beast and a couple fairies you must fight in order to obtain necessary items to progress in the story, I just packed it up and sent it back.

It was difficult for me to get the hang of, and I couldn't seem to get enough money to pay and get my characters resurrected at the Infirmary in town. This game got a 3 from me, because it's just not a game worth my time. The graphics are totally outdated and the landscape looks like it was just recycled from Valkyria Chronicles. I went against the member ratings and got it anyway. I wish I hadn't gotten it. The member's ratings were fairly accurate, this game is not good.

The game overall is a strategy game. It has a lot of text based communication to convey the story. This necessarily is the bad part of the game. The game goes to the point that it gets boring after reading or autoplaying the text conversation. It needed a little bit more animation or graphic story to make this a better game. With respect to the actual strategy battle, they show a typical design. What helps in the battle situation is that you can do massive combos and chain artful series of finishing move. The standby mode is the one that will get you more action points (AP) for moving but the wrong call or setup here may cost you your team.

I would like to continue playing but the converstation or lack of graphic animation on text style of communication is boring me to death (I actually am dosing off the conversation).

I personnaly like games like this for example Fire Emblem of the Wii was a good game. Kept me on the edge of my seat. This game seems to bore me during communication mode.

Redfren’s two cents

I found this game to be fun for a little while. It’s a bit like most tactics games however. Aside from this I suppose my only real issue with the game was that it seemed to drag on. The level up system is really horrid. There are some free ps3 downloads that come with it but they very much unbalance the game and once you get them you honestly wish you hadn’t.
