Very Good

This game is a welcome diversion from typical RPGs

This game is a welcomed diversion from your typical RPG. The story line was solid and easy to follow. You always know what is going on and what your objective is,without telling you how to do it of course. I found myself playing the skirmishes again and again just because I liked playing them (and also to level up my characters). I had about 70 hours of playtime into this title so plan accordingly when renting.

One thing that I could say is bad about this game, but not enough to stop me from playing, is that the opponents turns sometimes take a long time when it is not needed. There is no option to skip or speed this up which is the only drawback I see to the game.

This is not your typical RPG and is more a strategy, combat fighting type of game which is turn based however this was like I said a welcomed change for a change. The main characters cannot be killed they just retreat so you kinda have free reign to use them for suicide missions without the fear of losing them which is rather fun.

I find myself even after beating the game wanting to play through again with different tatics/characters to change things up a bit.

I thoroughly enjoyed this game and would recommend to anyone who likes a good rpg and has the hours to devote to it. It is not a simple push buttons and play through, some of the fights are tough and last hours at a time.

A very unique game. If you like games such as fire emblem then you should be right at home playing.

Everytime I've gone to Gamestop i always looked at this game on the shelves and had this urge to buy it. My rental came in from gamefly and i suppose i am glad i never did purchase it all those times i stared at it.

I'm still only in the near beginning stages of the game, but it is not something that holds my attention. Maybe i'll try again one day but atm this game isnt for me.

While i love tactical games, i dont like this. Maybe im tired, maybe i lack the attention span right now who knows.
