The game is harder than most - and it's not even ON hard mode until after you beat it the first time. Chances are that even the most experienced player will need a strategy guide in order to find all the items (in which no clues are given to their location) and the characters. Without knowing, you could easily pass up 3 party members, and murder another. The weapon affinities are a little confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, you're in for intense battles and amazing game play.
The game utilizes cards as hidden doors to skills, and most gamers have come to believe that a game with 'cards' is akin to games like Yu-Gi-Oh. This is certainly not the case, as each card gives a person a hidden skill to use against their opponent; many of which are the deciding factor in a battle. Cards abilities range from healing to setting enemies on fire, to cursing, and require certain criteria in order to be used.
The characters are easily lovable, each with their own personalities and history. No two playable characters are the same in terms of class, though they can use the same weapon but be a different gender. For example, Rosary is a Witch and Roswell is a Necromancer. Both use staves, but Rosary has the fire element and Roswell has darkness.
Healing is difficult in Yggdra Union. Character's have "morale" for what would be known otherwise as "HP", which often must be replenished after a battle. You usually cannot heal morale IN battle unless you use a specific card or equip an item, but that card can only be used at a certain time.Read more ›
:fully turn based but no Trpg elements
:activate a card per turn to attack enemies and the cards movement and power (one attack per turn) decide whether you conquer
:annoying flashing white lights on each turn (like an arcade game) make it difficult to play Yggdra Union
:with a New Game+ mode you can play twice and the game has 8 good guy characters in all making it not a bore to play again
This game is very challenging, and it's up to YOU to use your brain and what resources you have to make it through. This is not a game that holds your hand when the going gets tough, no no... this game teaches you the basics and then leaves the rest to your able mind.
The amazing blend of strategy and real-time combat will keep you going for hours on end without boring you out, which is good since you'll be doing a lot of fighting in this game thanks to the very long missions you will encounter.
Most of the time, the missions in the story will include several smaller skirmishes and/or objectives. This is okay since it always makes you think one step ahead since you never know what could happen next, but it also means that you'll have to start over from the beginning of the mission if you fail on any of the other objectives, as you don't get to save during missions.
It also doesn't help that you're sometimes put in a completely unfair situation after completing an objective.
Heck, sometimes you're even outnumbered from the very start. So in other words... this game likes to challenge you, but it also enjoys seeing you squirm. You really have to utilize every single function and gameplay mechanic if you want to beat this game.
If the combat has you down, the characters in the game will almost certainly make you smile.
This game has a sense of humor and isn't afraid to use it. Jokes are told on a somewhat regular basis, and the character interactions are really funny from time to time.
The story is alright as well. It's nothing to write home about, but it's enjoyable to a certain degree.Read more ›
Well, the game was not what I expected. For one, it is definitely not your typical RPG, or even what comes to mind when I think "tactics" game (I think Final Fantasy Tactics or Jeanne D'arc). It has a fresh, new battle system and gameflow that is, as the title of this review says, surprisingly addictive. During midterms when I should have been concentrating completely on studying, this little unexpectedly fun game kept me busy, and feeling guilty that I couldn't put it down.
It's different. It's fun. Give it a try.

The art of the game was what originally attracted me. But be warned, the game is not a standard RPG, or even TRPG. Read morePublished on September 13, 2009 by Lumiere
