Summary: This game feels pretty disappointing. Bland combat and no interesting story or characters. Nothing innovative about this game at all. You'll be wishing you picked up a different game that can actually hold your interest.
Summary: Three of us were very excited to purchase this game, as we had been waiting hopefully for a Monster Hunter related game. I was the only one who preordered it, and I ended up ordering the Merc. Edition (because the cashier told me that it would be easier to switch to a regular version). It was a mistake on two parts: 1. The three of us should have preordered it, because mine was the only game that arrived, and 2. I ended up stuck with the Merc.
Summary: I love Ragnarok Online so I gave this game a try. After a handful of missions I realized something. My level had not gone up, not once. You only level after you clear chapters, so all of the mindless grinding you do becomes pointless. The missions are pretty much always one of two things: Collect X many of this item, or kill Y many of this monster. If you want a grindfest, go with Disgaea 3 or something else.
