Cross Edge features characters and storylines from popular franchises including: Darkstalkers, Disgaea, Mana Khemia, and Spectral Souls. Cross Edge is action-packed with memorable characters, amazing items, and over-the-top battles to deliver an once-in-a-lifetime gaming experience.

Story
The story of Cross Edge follows the adventures of hero and heroine York Neely and Miki Aiba. Awaking in a strange world, they are soon sought out by a little girl named May. She tells them that the world around them was created from souls gathered from other worlds and that if this stealing of souls from other places does not stop, sooner or later those other places--that is reality--will disappear forever. To stop this from happening they will have to defeat this new world's evil master by releasing all the souls now confined to his nightmare world. To do this they will need all the special abilities that they possess, as well as the help they will gain from others that they meet on their travels.

Gameplay
Cross Edge is a traditional Japanese role-playing game complete with world map, random battles, level grinding, item combining/creation using alchemy, etc. It also features heroes and villains from game franchises published by Gust, Capcom, Nippon Ichi, Namco Bandai and Idea Factory. As players set about freeing the trapped souls supporting the nightmare world that they are stuck in, they engage in turn-based team battles. This is where the characters from previous games come in. Players must enlist them to join in party-based battles. Success in these battles is based on the ability to string together specific moves into chain attack sequences, which in turn unlock even stronger combinations when successful. Players can also increase their characters' stats and abilities by acquiring additional costumes called 'forms' and redressing their characters in them. Female characters physical appearances can also be changed based on the form they're wearing.

The goal of the game is to release souls. You can find and collect souls by searching around area maps. Exposure to souls can grant players items or unlock events. Along with soul related events, maps will also point players to other helpful locations such as event points, points at which other events may occur, and save points, where you can save your game as well as buy, sell and trade items.

Key Features

  • Cross Edge combines classic RPG combat with a grid-based Strategy RPG combat to create a hybrid battle system. In combat, a square grid will appear beneath the units. Some units are better at close combat and others at a distance, so players must strategically move their units to battle enemies.
  • In combat, some units can toss up enemies and chain combo various moves for extra damage, like in a fighting game.
  • By using characters from Gust titles, players can use alchemy to craft weapons.
  • Change costumes to increase character’s stats and abilities, and in some cases revealing cut scenes.
  • Explore dungeons to run, jump and attack.
  • Cross Edge is bilingual. Players have the option to choose between English or Japanese voiceovers.
  • Add to your PlayStation trophy collection as you play through the game.

Do you miss the old days of RPGs? Large character rosters, recurring enemies, sprawling worlds, dialogue that makes little sense at best? Good news! Cross Edge is, for better or worse, the most interesting attempt at a re-invention of the oldschool 8 and 16-bit RPGs that I've seen in years. It also happens to be one of the most addicting, complex but sometimes downright frustrating titles to roll onto a console in recent memory. Let it be said in advance that, despite my scoring a 7 of 10, this is certainly the most fun and most I've played any title with such a score. There's a lot to love here, but a lot of it happens to be flawed as well.

To say Cross Edge, from Nippon Ichi Software (best known for the Disgaea series), appears to be a niche title is an understatement. Not only does it meet 100% of the qualifications of the infamous JRPG formula, but its premise is based on a mashing together of settings and characters from the other titles in the NIS software lineup. In other words, it's a JRPG made up of JRPGs. Confused yet? Good. Oddly, that's part of the appeal here. You could think of the Cross Edge running as the Kingdom Hearts series of NIS. The only notable pitfall with this is that sales are a magnitude of 10 lower than the titles that comprise Square-Enix's set.

You'll be starting your adventure in the usual unknown land with mysterious creatures. In no time flat, you're sucking in new characters to your lineup. A lot of characters, actually. To be precise there are 32 voice actors listed for characters in the end credits, if you'd like some warning as to what's in store. Whether you known the characters in advance or not, you'll find them to all have their quirks.

Please do not listen to anybody who plays a game for 3 hours then writes a review about it.

The depth in this game is amazing! I have been yearning for a good classic style RPG on the PS3 for a long time now and this satisfies my every need.

As far as the "clunky" menu, I have no idea what the above reviewer is doing who supposedly is some kind of expert playing RPG's (pshhh). The menus are SIMPLE and pretty straight-forward after 10 minutes of gameplay. There are functions later on that become more useful, but I really cannot say the menus are bad.

You CANNOT play a game of this depth for THREE hours and then review it. There's 100's of hours of gameplay, tons of weapons and armor, hidden items, hidden characters, and you're going to write a review after THREE FREAKING HOURS?

I did not give this game 5 stars because it does not make use of the PS3's next-gen system in terms of graphics and audio. However, this game absolutely proves that a solid gameplay system, incredible depth and wonderful characters make a game, not the visuals. My only gripe is I wish I could skip the movies because should I choose to replay it, they take forever (press start button to auto-forward)

To add to this review, even more hours into it, I understand why some people may not like it, but some reviews sound more like sour grapes and attacks rather than objective reviews. There are drawbacks to it which a lot of reviews have harped on already.

To give more detail though, as far as why I enjoy the game:

1. Battle System - Wonderfully implemented in my opinion. I hate, hate, hate the new style of "action" rpg's where it's basically Tomb Raider with RPG elements, ala Phantasy Star for the PSP.

Do you love grinding? How about having 5 different menus just for the items? Or having to figure out how to actually use the several different skills each of the 30 or so characters in the game can learn? And then having to see which of those skills can be combined? Or how about having to learn the best way to synthesize items for the best weapons? And then upgrading said weapons to make them stronger? And then converting said stronger weapons into raw materials to synthesize better weapons and so on and so on?

Now, you're probably wondering why I would give the game 4 stars after all that rambling. Simple, really. Because I actually like doing all of that. It's been a while since I play an RPG that actually makes me work for the victory. The game does have simple graphics, reminiscent of the SNES era, with static images for the cut scenes. You do get to choose between Japanese or English voice overs. The music, as the graphics, is simple, and repetitive. Don't know why I thought of the old Mega Man games when I first heard the background music...

The game does have a steep learning curve. If you decide to take the plunge, you'll be scratching your head for the first few hours trying to figure out the many nuances of the game and possibly checking game forums for help. But in the end, the game is truly something different and enjoyable.

If you like standard RPG fare, like Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest, don't bother with the game. However, if you felt like I did and wanted to experience something new, something that makes you remember why you liked this genre in the first place, then by all means pop in the disc and start playing. You just have to be a little open minded and have a little patience.
