That's the one of the most fitting terms I can think of for this game.
It's a great game with good graphics and a wild battle system. It's fairly short, but would probably be a 30 hour game if the battle system was a random turn based system like Final Fantasy. But, since the battle system is so unique and fast, the game ends pretty quickly.
It's very obvious from the design that this is only the first third of the game. It ends in a cliffhanger.
Either way, I really really liked this game after I figured out how the battle system worked. It's just a shame it's not very long. This one could easily be beaten in a long afternoon.
It's also a terrible shame that we'll most likely never get to play the two other games in the planned trilogy.
I absolutely adore this game... Once you get used to the controls, its very intuitive. Friendly AI leaves a bad taste in the mouth every now and then (during particularly nasty battles when they just stand there, or their weapons don't seem to affect the enemy!)
The leveling system is pretty good, however the runes in the game are somewhat confusing at first. Nice leveled weapons, 5 classes to choose from depending on your play style, and no 2 play throughs will be the same provided you use different classes of course.
