Summary: I too think this game has been somewhat overrated in the other user reviews. Don't get me wrong -- it is a great game and I enjoyed playing it, but I found that it also left some to be desired. Let's start with the good: the voice acting was of high quality, and though it often seems unnecessary in games, it can add a lot to the experience when done well. The graphics were also beautiful, and it was nice to see their themes change in the different elemental realms.
Summary: I am surprised at the high reviews this game has been given. I know that it is excellent in many ways, but it still has a long way to go yet. On the other hand, it is nice to see virtual environments used in an interesting way. It is a one star game play for me, but I have given two extras. One for the environments and another one for trying something different. It is also an extremely short game.
Summary: Wow to my surprise this is a really enjoyable game! I find the graphics really beautiful. The voice acting are really good too. I find myself immersed in this mesmerizing fantasy world. Game play is not hard and not too easy as well. The mini-games are a bit challenging - especially toward the end where I need to draw the right symbols. Some people found the game a bit short but the duration was okay with me. If it becomes too long, then perhaps the magic will be lost.
Summary: If you're looking for a lovely game that is highly pleasurable from begining to end and won't fry your brain cells, then Kuros is definitely for you. Sandelot went to great lengths to produce stunning surrealistic graphics, on the verge of abstraction, yet so beautifully drawn out that part of my enjoyment was derived from just admiring each scene for a good five minutes. Gameplay and in-game navigation are fluid.
Summary: I just bought the game and haven't gotten very far but so far, it's been fun and challenging. I have seen where this game is in the top 10 games and had heard that it was a good game. I'll have to play more and see what's going to happen next.
