Summary: I was curious about this game, the story sounded like it could have potential so I picked it up and good god I regretted it. It was supposed to be all hand drawn so I hoped for something that would be just gorgeous but apparently they meant only the characters were drawn and everything else was made on the PS1. When you FINALLY get to the playing part, your character looks like a paper pasted onto the background moving around.
Summary: I love NIS games. I love the art, I love the color, I love the Japaneseness of it all.... I just love seeing uber Japanese anime RPGs come stateside... I heard very very bad things about Time and Eternity, but being an NIS fan, i decided to just go for it. I love the Ar Tonelico games, and the Atelier series is one of my favorite series ever And I even love Mugen Souls and Hyperdimension Neptunia, which aren't really loved by critics at all.
Summary: After playing the game for a long time, I decided to drop the game. The game has many flaws that become apparent once you start playing. While everything seems new and with great ideas, it is poorly done. Enemies take way too long to beat and follow a certain pattern. By no means that makes the battle easy, as a slight recolored enemy means another pattern to discover. Story is original and very well done, there's character growth and the animation in general is good.
