Summary: I was hoping for something like the first game but the changes are not an improvement they should have kept the same model and just created more content for it I couldn't recommend this a huge disillusionment.
Summary: Never played the first. Tried but too old school for me I guess. Duel Saga was fun. Won't say it compares to FF games but it was solid. Enemies are tough when entering new areas. Art combat is interesting. Enemy Bosses are entertaining. I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys turn based RPGs. Sure there's better but there are many worst. Not a waste of time at all.
