A group of underground soldiers known as Deepground have plans to revive the dreaded Omega Weapon. In order to do that, however, they need Vincent Valentine. Throughout the game you'll play as Vincent Valentine, getting to the bottom of this mystery. The gold of the story is that it provides quite an interesting look into Vincent's past. There are moments when the story feels a little complicated, but it's still a good experience nonetheless.
Dirge of Cerberus isn't really an RPG. Square refers to it as an "RPG Shooter," but in reality, it's really just a shooter. The game has a rather simple formula for its missions. You'll view a cutscene that introduces you to the level. The cutscene is usually long, and you'll have to wait for it to load first, and then you'll have to wait for it to load after its over. Then you'll go into said level and blast everything and anything that moves. Then at the end of each level you'll fight a boss. Rinse and repeat. Every stage in the game is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is keep shooting at virtually anything that moves. In some missions there are other things you can do, but really, you don't have to do these optional events. They're just there so you can improve your score.Read more ›
Vincent is older than the typical Final Fantasy Teen character - more along the lines of Auron from FFX. He loves to dramatically swirl his cape as he moves. He is dark, brooding, and ruthlessly efficient in his attacks. I like all of this.
The cut scenes are simply *gorgeous* at times. The movements of characters is just amazing. The small motions, the emotions shone, this is a work of art.
Unfortunately, given these great achievements, the actual gameplay really doesn't hold up well for me. I understand that this is not a RPG - it is a combat game. You go around attacking enemies, little numbers of damage bounce over their heads, and you reduce them to zero. The "world" is a Final Fantasy world, but it's not really a Final Fantasy game. It's about building up gun components, shooting, and then shooting some more. Puzzles involve getting cards to get through doors, and figuring out how to kill enemies.
The in game graphics are much less impressive than the cut scenes. Your character is reduced to jumping and walking. There's no diving, rolling, or other special moves. Even worse, there are incredibly numerous long pauses as you go between gameplay and cut scene. There must have been a better way to integrate those quickly, especially as many of the cut scenes are just brief little "thank you"s.
Also, while I know Vincent is a dark, brooding type - a type that appeals to me a lot, by the way - I find him a bit too uncaring about the people around him. He seems often to get involved reluctantly.Read more ›
This game is unique to the Final Fantasy world because it is an action game, not the usual RPG. Also, it stars a side character from an earlier game which hasn't been done yet either. However, in this case change isn't good. For starters many of the guns are basically the same thing. Of course there are a few differences, but none really too noticeable. Also, the action just becomes stale after awhile. Sure, the enemies change but it's never anything special. All you really have to do is click the R1 button a few times and they all die. Not to mention, the game designers seemed to try and make it as annoying as possible. There are constant loading and saving in the middle of the game that really bogs down the action. But, even after all these saves mid-mission death takes it's toll. You can run through three parts of a four part mission, waste a bunch of time doing boring gun fighting, and then die. And sometimes when you die, they send you all the way back to the start. ...That sucks.
Still, for fans of Final Fantasy the game does have some redeeming qualities. The CG cutscenes are beautiful and the story of Vincent Valentine is rather interesting. Still, when those cutscenes are just popping up two or three times every mission it can get a little tedious. Not to mention, there are load times between the cut scenes and the action. So, you have to wait through that as well.
It is also good to note, that it is cool to hear voices of the characters from a game from 1997. The music isn't too bad either.Read more ›
