Not too good.
on November 28, 2012
I bought this game to support Game Arts, the makers of Grandia... My favorite game of all time.
Their game direction has fallen a bit since the PS1 though...
This game is a cluster bomb of bright colors and trails, confusion, and obscure objectives.
Most of the time I had no idea what I was really supposed to be doing, and just shot down whatever enemy the game decided to highlight. Eventually though, you really have to focus if you want to progress, and I just found the process to not be all that much fun.
The controls are finicky and even on the lowest sensitivity I was jerking my ship back and forth trying to center it on a target. You have an overdrive, but it's only really useful when you are very, very, very far away from a target... So... It's not that useful in this game.
The story isn't all that compelling either, though the dialogue isn't bad, the voice acting could be better.
All in all, this game looks better than it plays..
