If you are deciding between the limited edition or just downloading the game, here's what in the limited edition:
-Art book: Major disappointment compared to the Japanese version. The localized version has a picture of major characters...that's it. The Japanese version has pictures, screenshots and text that probably tells you who the character is. Lazy part on the localization team.
-Soundtrack: Contains 25 songs that is about 50 mins long. I can't compare this to the Japanese version since I don't know what that version has but there are some songs that should have been on the disk like "Fury Sparks" from Tales of Vesperia or X's theme and Zero's theme.
-Mini Poster: Basically just... I don't know, something you would seen on an advertisement.
With that out of the way...
Gameplay: It's a very basic SRPG at first and you can mash A to beat enemies, but the game rewards you for learning the battle system. The more you play, the deeper the strategy gets. You have to position units to get ideal support attacks to extend your combos and gain past 100 XP. Once you grasp the depths of how to extend your combos in combat, you have to balance your use of XP for skills and supers, not only that, but your solo units are all different and choosing which unit to tag them with is harder than it seems. Solo units add unique skills that can make your pair unit versatile but you have to balance it between useful skills and how the solo unit's attack will help extend your combos. The game's major problem is balance. You start with a basic team...then a squad, then 2...then a frickin' platoon.Read more ›
1. It is extremely repetitive. There is rarely any "skill" required to battle, and one only needs to remember when to press a specific combination of buttons in order to achieve the most damage.
2. The story makes very little sense: After the 12th conversation where I still did not understand why anything was happened, or what was going on, I just started skipping the dialogue in favor of the battles.
Now, on to the good news;
1. Ultimate fan service: this is the game only a fan can appreciate. If you have a favorite character, be it from Sega, Capcom or Namco, they are given a great amount of attention.
2. The game is beautiful: the sprite work is amazing, and every character is rendered in exquisite detail. The animation interspersed between the battle animations is also a great touch.
3. The battles are fun: I actually replayed several battles, and it was fun to try new combinations or characters and moves.
4. Lengthy quest; The game is LONG. I am 20 hours in, and I still have plenty more to do. You certainly get your money's worth.
I am giving this game 3 stars simply because if you are not a fan of the respective companies, you will find little to keep you playing.Read more ›
However, there is also a host of problems. For starters, battles are tedious and require very little strategy. Most of them play out the same way:
1.) Good guys arrive in world. "Where are we? How did we get here?"
2.) Bad guys show up and taunt the good guys.
3.) Both sides fight it out
4.) More good guys and bad guys show up and enter the mix
4.) Both sides fight it out some more
5.) Bad guys get bored and leave
6.) Repeat 1-5 on the next stage
Because of number five, you rarely feel like you're triumphing over evil. On the contrary; it usually feels like you're just entertaining the baddies in between cutscenes. Battles end up becoming a real slog later in the game, with you revisiting maps for new fights.
Speaking of cutscenes: the characters babble on constantly about what's happening in the multiverse. Unfortunately, you don't find out what's happening until the final battle, so they speculate endlessly without really learning much. I ended up fast-forwarding through the dialogue. Admittedly, the ending rewards you for your troubles (though with a bunch more dialogue to blow through).
Bottom line: the game does its multitude of various source materials justice, but the battles could have been a whole lot better.
