Summary: Sands of Destruction is a very solid game in terms of story, but the gameplay itself suffers from a few flaws that end up holding it back from being truly great. I would recommend it to anyone that is a fan of turn-based RPGs though.
Summary: Before I get started I will come out and say that I watched the entire anime well before I even knew it was a game. I loved the series and the whole idea behind it is pretty great. When I found out about the game being a turned based rpg it made me really happy. I got the game and it worked great, but as I got a little in to it I realized that it was not going to be a cake walk... The game is pretty tough (Even frustrating at times).
Summary: Kyrie and friends are out to destroy the world, and what a crappy world it is: humans are oppressed and maltreated at the hands of the Beastlords and the ferals they lead, and on top of that the oceans have turned to sand as the planet slowly decays. Wrenched from his peaceful village by a disaster he created, Kyrie is swept along by the strong and vengeful face of the World Annihilation Front, Morte, as she battles against the forces that stand in the path of...
Summary: I won't bore you to death, but after playing this game for 15 hours, and with the end seeming nowhere in sight I would like to say that this game is a puzzle game disguised as a RPG. Yes there are the usual RPG elements but the "dungeons" are all ingenious mazes laid out in such a way that you really have to use your mind to figure them out. And no two are alike in anyway!! A very nice and unexpected twist.
Summary: I love role playing games and Sands of Destruction is no exception. Though it starts out a little quirky, the game progessively gets more challenging and a lot more fun. It was kind of nice to destroy a world rather than save it like so many cliche RPGs these days.
Summary: This gamein all was/is a fun game the story is very typical in RPG's and the game play is also very typical. What this lacks is that most of this has been done before. This game is fun and if your a rpg fan at all you will enjoy this game and the battle system is done rather well but is all keep in mind it has all been done before. Bottom line though it has been done before if your a RPg fan then pick this one up you will enjoy it.
Great Story, Battle system could be a bit more...difficult

Summary: I loved that this game provided a wonderful story of the world ending. The voice acting of course gave it a good edge. The gameplay though was weird, I mean, Fighting was awesome and all but it was way too simple. I loved though that the game provided a LONG gameplay that took me a while to finish when most games I play take like 2 hours to finish.
Summary: To be honest, I find the game fun and entertaining,, but there are some things which can turn off some players. First: Grinding. This is more of an old school JRPG, which means that you'll have to deal with this. Unlike some of the grinding nightmares a la Dragon Quest, though, it simply scales your xp gain to your level. This can get frustrating as in some places, you get minimal xp for a battle in a dungeon where the boss at the end eats you alive.
Summary: Pros: Great story. Catchy music. Good voice work. Unique characters, and well laid out back stories. Very challenging puzzles. The game overall is organized very well, no frustrations with menus, or battle system. Cons: Broken battle system (shove all points into flurry, spam Y button to win). Random encounters are set too high, and with very complicated puzzles, running around a lot gets annoying.
