This game seems to be fairly full of standardized idioms and tropes.. The hero and his first companion look like Adol and Dogi wannabes... The gameplay devolves in to standardized hack, and slash with three kinds of attacks wich includes fast melee, magical ranged, and an Area of effect type attack...
Main plot the main character must kill his own grandfather, an evil emperor to avenge his parents death... Two others join up also apparently a big fighter, and a beautiful assassin .. all three of them are techincally brawlers and they each specialize in one weapon type... It seems that the magic meter is also an experience bar??? In a nut-shell, you will be doing a lot of grinding which means alot of basic attack spamming(by way of button mashing, which gets old fast.. Another game which forces you to use a generic crew of characters.. But it also doesn't feature alot of voice acting.. If they aren't going to give us alot of voice acting, then they could have given us a wider selections of abilities to fight the bad guys with... The monsters certainly don't drop a lot of coin either, which also seems to be the only thing they tend to drop.. I played on it for a couple of hours and I ended up putting it back out in the mail box... Well, that is why we always try before we buy!
Please do yourself a favor and avoid this like the plague. It's games like this that are making JRPG's look more and more outdated and it's why western RPG's are dominating the market. The graphics are very dated there is an awful grain effect that is constantly on the screen. Cut scenes are pictures with text at the bottom with no voice over what so ever. the controls are clunky and unresponsive and you will face the same enemies over and over. Seriously it feels like they simply pumped out this game as fast as they could to move on to the next project.
About this game,lets see,theres good fighting,if you don't mind a combo base style, I feel the story kinda falls flat,however the begaining is enough to draw you in,if you don't mind looking trough a burlap sack.So for you fighters outthere.Ill give it a five.
