Summary: While I like the type of strategic battle - turn based mixed with grid based movement - i.e. SRPG; I could not get into this game. The feather element is inventive (strategic sacrifice of a party member in battle). The "sin" element is inventive, but feels flawed, for lack of a better term, and makes battles either too hard (usually) or too easy. I have a feeling I picked the worst Valkyrie Profile game to start with.
