Graphics don't make the game.

I see a lot of people dogging the graphics of this title. This is a shame really, because there is a gem of a game hidden behind the graphical shortcomings. One must remember that this game was originally slated to be released on the PS2, but delays in production pushed it on to the next generation of systems.

The amount of replay value is extremely high because this game has over 20 endings, hundreds of weapons (you can build your own, and customize them with parts you find), and lots of humor interleaved into the story. This game has a PLUS version available in Japan that actually has a lot of content that was cut from the North American release.

Sure, the graphics aren't up to snuff to today's standards, and the voice acting for the English dub is suspect at best, but the game really is FUN to play. However, some of the humor in the game may not be understood by western culture, because this game was intended for Japanese players.

A lot of the bad reviews for this come from people who just did not take the time to get into the game. The bottom line is that this game is definitely not for everyone, but I urge everyone to at least give it it's fair time in the system to learn its intricacies before slamming it with a "1".

After you start the game (prefereably on easy) choose one of the first two responces. Then after you wake up and chat with the old guy you will see a woman harrassed by two guys beat them up, push select to switch between dull and regullar). She will give you all the story info and some basic controlls.
After that you need to go to the Gate place. On your map it should be the far left city region. Use quick travel by pressing A on the map and moving the yellow flag. When you get there go right then you will see a large wooden building. Each floor contains a master. He will give you combat info. In order to go to the next floor you must beat the master there. There are a totall of 3 masters but only 2 will give you info.

When you look at your map and see the black cloud looking things they are cinemas that you can avtivate by talking to the people there and choosing the right responce/ some are activated by just being in the area.

Sorry for the breifness i typed a much btter version but my connection fizzled and it was earased. I cant type that much again...
