Just a heads up.

Still too expensive for this soulless, JRPG-by-the-numbers.

I agreed with you on Tales of the Abyss being amazing, can you expand on this opinion?

There's just nothing special about it, the story is bland the characters are bland the world is bland etc.

It's serviceable I guess, nothing it does is particularly bad, but why waste your time/money on a game like this when you have options like Tales of the Abyss, Xenoblade, The Last Story etc that are so much better.

I see, I'll look up for more info about the gameplay, since the story doesn't seem that intriguing.

Yeah. It's hurts me to say this because I had high hopes for this game, but it fails on almost every level. It's like StriderNeo says "an RPG by the numbers". What annoys me is that they have a time travel mechanic that manages to be boring and tedious, but they could have just copied the ancient Chrono Trigger and did a better job. It's sad. The combat looks innovative at first glance, but it suffers due to the fact that almost every move requires mana to execute. It turns into a real grind. RPGs need to ditch non-regenerating mana entirely, it's a nonsensical and outdated mechanic.

By the way, thanks for contributing to this post, I've done further research about the game now.
It seems the rabid fanboys got mad at your OPINION, pretty common eh?

Violently disagree about this. Fantastic game.

I stumbled across Mark's (from CGR, I've followed his channel for ages now) review for the game:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kMUoNCS_Xo

He's always very enthusiastic when it comes to old-school JRPGs, but it seems that he really didn't completely enjoy the game, and we've agreed countless times. He also reminds: Buyer beware, at least 10h to "get into" the game.

Posted on Nov 11, 2012 2:24:10 PM PST
Agree with Strider. I tried to start this game numerous times and each time I woke up an hour later.

It's so dumb that we all get showered in down votes just for expressing honest opinions. Seriously if there is one persons opinion to take with weight in this board in regards to JRPS it's yours.

I hope I can be the second JRPGer in command, I'll make sure to intervene more frequently hehe.

same here. I thought the dual-timelines was fascinating. the battle system, the music, and general gameplay were also good.

I will disagree also. I didn't think this game was mind-blowingly innovative or even goty. But it was fun, the story and time travel mechanics were interesting (definitely not on the same level as chrono trigger though, but what is?), and was really a pretty solid game overall.

I can understand not thinking this is a great game, but I feel likes its solid enough to where I don't understand all the hate.

Totally. Valkyria Chronicles and Resonance of Fate are terrible. I bow to Strider's superior JRPG/SRPG views! :)

Now I need to go play games that are superior like The Last Remnant and Infinite Undiscovery!

Infinite Undiscovery is terrible too.

You should definitely play The Last Remnant though.

WHY ARE SO MANY GAMES TERRIBLE?

I don't want to play terrible games, I want to play good games.

Valkyria Chronicles was awesome. RoF did suck though.

Not many games are terrible. Just a few mentioned in this thread; though I wouldn't really call Radiant Historia or Valkyria Chronicles terrible.

I did. That shiny cover sticks out in my collection highlighting its crushing disappointment. The Last Remnant was a turd.

It was Star Ocean 4 you liked, wasn't it?

RoF was fantastic.

I liked the first 30 hours of Star Ocean 4; the battle system became a drag after that.

story/characters became a drag way before that, though.

The first cutscene was enough to put it on suicide watch. After playing for about 15 hours, I took it to a high hilltop and gave it freedom.
