Excerpt: Despite what Magna Carta: Tears of Blood thinks it is, it's the first major CRPG to feature a lesbian romance between its main characters. This is because Calintz is a woman . I don't care what his voice actor sounds like. Calintz is wearing women's clothing and has a woman's hairstyle.
Excerpt: Magna Carta: Tears of Blood was created by Korean developer, Softmax, and is being brought to the west by Atlus. The game was Softmax's first attempt with the PlayStation 2 console, but after playing the game I can honestly say that I hope it won't be their last!

Excerpt: The Magna Carta is an English document that dates back to the 13th century, meant to lessen the power of England’s monarchs. Long story made short, King John was the loser that took over after King Richard the Lion Hearted died. He more or less screwed over his family to come to power.
Conclusion: A bit of imbalance here is a bit ironic considering the themes of the game, but it's true. The storyline does help lift things up to the point of being better than your average RPG, but that doesn't mean the game isn't without significant faults.
