morons say this game is terrible and have no sense for games. this games characters r not dogi and adol wannabes. there is a lot to this game.
and this game is defined as an "action rpg" not action and adventure. if this was action and adventure it would b an a lot more intense and harder. but its wicked easy and i'd say its worth buying and keeping.

This is the game people like me, and my daughter, have been waiting for. Koei, who makes all the Dynasty Warriors games, finally takes that gameplay engine and put it in an RPG, with European themes. If you love DW, you'll love this, with the except there is no local multiplayer. If you don't love DW, then why are you playing this?
Now as for gameplay, it's identical to DW but you can instantly switch between 3 characters. In fact you eventually gain the ability to switch "in attack" allowing for combo's. However, you never obtain any more characters (to control) than the first 3. Furthermore, unlike DW, you never become so powerful you can just burn through quests, you're always at just the right level to complete a quest. Really though, the easiest way to play is to just upgrade the redhead guys shooting attacks and stand back away from danger.
Lengthwise, this is possibly the longest game I've ever played besides Final Fantasy 3. It gets to the point where you stray away to play something else, but then miss it and come back. Although some of that length comes from visiting every town repeatably to find the next story quest.
Storywise, the game starts-out familiar, but by the end has terrific and sad story.
The music is good, there's endless content, and even a sexy bounty hunter later on. I loved it!
