Summary: It would have been 10, if not for the infuriatingly slow combat animations on some frequently met enemies. Otherwise - a great story, an interesting combat system and a very good game overall. But fighting zombies.... ugh... made me drop the game more than once.
Summary: Truly a surprise. I got this game free with something else I had bought (some kind of bundle) and one day I was bored and gave it a try. I had never heard of it before, never tried it. My reaction was: OMG, this is awesome! Granted it isn't as good as as other better known RPGs, but Septerra Core truly blew me away. Graphic were good, combat was good (though did get a little dull later into the game) and narrative was great.
Summary: A combination of the 2D isometric RPG that made Black Isle famous, with the artifice of Final Fantasy. Dated by today's standards, but immediately excellent. Can be frustrating at times (easy to visit locations or characters out of sequence) and if there is any negative factor to the game, it's that it's from a time when you needed to read the manual (no tutorials), and can be a bit of a sod to get working properly on 64bit/Win7 machines.
Summary: Overall, this is a great game. Full voice acting and impressive graphics for 1999 combine with an exciting story and interesting character development to make a memorable experience. Fans of the early Final Fantasy games should truly enjoy this game. Its biggest flaw is that the combat system can become boring or even tedious after a while. I also found it frustrating that enemy health bars are hidden by default.
Summary: Wonderful RPG. Spell effects and battle system are very cool, as well as enemy models, artwork, and the whole concept and epic focus of the game. A walkthrough might be necessary to not get frustrated trying to figure out when and where to pick up certain items, and what to do with them, but besides that i had an amazing experience with this game. Great dialogue and cutscenes too!
Summary: Great game, you cannot expect Mass Effect series in the good old days. A somewhat linear RPG that involves less amount of exploration and more amount of turn-based combat. A variety of creatures and good boss-fights.
Excerpt: "...anime, and got Shogo with Septerra Core, two titles I've always wanted but surprisingly never saw on the shelves until they came out in the special dual jewel case set. The story is quite amazing and gameplay rarely boring as it requires deep thinking on the part of the player to solve certain situations by gathering items and creating certain party member combinations. Then again, I love to buy old games really late into the future. I would give ...
Excerpt: My first ever RPG - Septerra Core had me hooked in a matter of hours! The game seems to have everything - including excellent graphics and a captivating plot. It is without doubt, one of the most invigorating RPGs I've ever played. Septerra Core is a world consisting of seven floating layers called 'world shells'. Each shell is connected to and orbits around a nucleus. This 'Core' can be considered the source of nourishment from which the people draw Core energy.
