Summary: I am an avid RPG player. This game was just OK. I disliked the battle system and I also disliked that the game was so slow. I couldn't forward through conversations, that I could find, I had seen before. It was also difficult to go backwards when you ran into a Monster too tough. Instead of being able to leave the area, you had to go back to last save...If you had another save file from before you entered the area.
Summary: I enjoy gothic RPGs immensely, and when Atlus first announced the localization of this title, I was intrigued: intrigued enough to go searching for more information, to find videos of the gameplay, and even to read the reviews of the game that had been posted at Amazon.co.jp. The Japanese reviews were fairly universally negative, running pretty uniformly along the lines of "interesting concept, and very pretty, but poorly executed.
