This game did a great job satisfying that need for a good RPG. Much better than the prior titles. Great graphics, good storyline and the battle system is intuitive and smart. Spend hours grinding to build my characters. Great play for a time with a lack of great portable RPG games.
This Game is really fun. It follows two young bracers (traveling warriors who do odd jobs for money) on their quest to becone master bracers. The combat in this game is very simple and easy to use. You have you basic normal attacks, special attacks, and magic. Each character also has a super-powered Special attack as well. The combat feels very rewarding with plenty of different characters to play as.
Costomizing your character is simple, but not as deep as some might like. Each character has an orbment which you can put diferent crystals in to anhance your caracter( HP up, Defence up, etc) each character only gets 6 crystals though so after a few hours you character fills in all their crystals and you can't do much else besides upgradeing them. You have your basic weopen and armor upgrades but there isn't a lot of hidden caves with chests in this game.
The story is split between four chapters and a prologue. the prologue takes about 3 hours and each chapter is 10-12 hours depending on how much extra quests you want to do. a good thing about this game is that all sidequests are easily found in towns but some expire before your evan aware of them.
Your characters meet several allies on their journey and each has a unique combat style and all are usefull.
The only thing thats really bad about this game is the stoty isn't very easy to get into. Instead of one long narrative running throughout the whole game, each chapter has a totally different cast and story. With the exception of the last chapter none of the chapters relate to each other. A more streamlined story that ran through all the chapters would have been nice.
In conclusion this game is very fun. The script is well written with interesting character relationships. The combat is simple enough for a newbie but with lots of different abilities and tactics to use. This is also a long game the discription says 50 hours and that is no exageration. Plan on staying in this world for a while.

i played this game for 40 minutes first day then fell in love with it once i saw my favorite ability regenerate hp in it.
what you do in the game:
be a hero in a guild and help people
you play as two kids who are trying to be like thier dad.
when i saw the combat i thought it was nice. the combat is turned based and fast paced. the game does NOT have slow load times. the beginning is nice and has a nice introduction of the characters. this game is keepable and i definitly would keep it once i get my favorite rpg ability. oooooooooo yaaa!!!
