Gaming Addicts Network
24 August 2005
  • Excerpt: I found an article on this game about a year before it came out and thinking to myself "This looks like an interesting game, you get to make your own world". I completely forgot about the game until I got a PS2 and after Christmas, found the game in the shop and instantly bought it.
  • Pros: + Pros-Genius game play, never played anything like it before
  • Cons: - Cons-Some levels are a tad too difficult to get through

Just RPG
