An on-off relationship.....

  • Summary: This game is a fine pick up-put down game for kids and students.It's fun in a pinch but not really a long term gig. An hour a day...

Chaotic, yet to simple and boring.

Steven Zukowski, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: This game looks really cool in the screen shots and trailer... but it's simply not. The actual "battles" are extremely chaotic and way to quick. You have barely a chance to figure out what is going on before you've lost a unit. The "strategy" is extremely basic and mainly amounts to Rock Paper Scissors and the special attacks are extremely clunky and don't really stand out.

I'm a otaku and love it.

  • Summary: Many of these games I can tell don't do well in america. But this cheap JRPG takes the cake in many ways. If you are new to the JRPG genre this is a steal.

  • Summary: Great game. loads of fun. My niece loves it. Worth the bucks. I must choose my games carefully. A couple of years ago the game could be returned if opened.

So wonderfully boring.

Posh Bostonite, Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: This game is tedious and awful and like a terrible version of Dragon Force. Instead of talking to your recruits, you get a pink frog sometimes saying, "Someone gave me vegetables." You build walls, watch walls be broken, and do not even know your stats even if you have someone at level 10 as tactician. That's right. You don't know anyone's stats. The smarter your tactician, the more likely you are to have some numbers right.

  • Summary: The system doesn't aged too well by today's standard as it's closer to other Spectral Force games which has quite a long history. The cheracters are more lovable this time though. Get it if you are fan of the series, otherwise there are many more SRPGs for you to choose from the NDS library.

Not well thought out

John Hinnegan, Amazon
1 January 2011
  • Summary: So, I played this game a fair bit, and got to a dominant point in the game. I got into it fairly quickly. Got the hang of it, and really liked it. The con, is that it the developers didn't really seem to think ahead more then 4 hours. First of all, there's no real story. That would be okay, except, there's not much of a challenge. I've been playing for a few hours. Basically, you're trying to take over the continent from dozens of other countries.

Stunningly poorly designed... and yet...

Christopher Engel, Amazon
11 August 2010
  • Summary: Despite being poorly designed, this game is still fun for what it is. There are huge problems all throughout it. The interface is slow, clunky, monotonous, and a horrible chore with which to interact. The AI is brain-dead, making the game way, way too easy. There aren't enough event sequences for each nation, and the ones that are there are too brief.

Ridiculously Simple/Slow Paced/Boring

T. Elder, Amazon
7 July 2010
  • Summary: I'm not one to dislike strategy video games, I like them almost without fail, because something or another will shine through to make the game worth playing. So I don't understand what the reviewer who gave it shining 8s and 9s out of 10 is talking about, but he either has never played other games, or is literally a zombie and will sit there for 90+ hours playing through the same repetitive mind numbing game 3x...

Spectral Force Genesis

Christopher Stearns, Amazon
5 July 2010
  • Summary: I'm going to level with you. This game seems interesting when you start out. But it gets tiresome. The biggest problem, as it see it, is game balance. Once you start conquering nations your power grows exponentially and the game looses all semblance of difficulty. This would be fine if reaching the invincible phase meant you were close to the end, but it doesn't. You a few more hours of tireless, repetitive and wholly un-challenging game play before you win.
