Summary: It was fun at first. I love the characters and the story is interesting, BUT...there is a major con to this game, that if you don't form a good party and stick with it, you're screwed, because there is no ability to grind to improve your levels before you move on. So if you didn't manage to get to a decent level before some boss fight? Too bad, you're screwed.
Summary: What Disgaea is to Final Fantasy Tactics, Soul Nomad is to Fire Eblem or Advance Wars. Gameplay generally follows the larger scale tactics battle system with you eventually fielding small armies instead just a large squad like in FFT. This game can be challenging, but like all NIS titles, with enough experience (or a decent faq) you can learn to take advantage of the game mechanics to become god-like.
Summary: An amazing game, one of the first SRPGs i could get into for multiple hours :D. This game is creative and unique and you really get attatched to the characters like Dannete and Gig. Graphically, its nothing special, but the way they use those graphics is what made the game for me. If you like Fire Emblem and Advanced Wars, this game is perfect for you. A lengthy game ( i took 30 hrs.), and with the multiple play throughs, this game has a very strong replay value.
Summary: while at first it may seem slow after a couple maps you will be addicted with the inspection option you can train characters expand your room occupancy and upgrade your decor. another fun part is after your first play through you can be evil rather than good opening up a whole other set of possibilities.
Summary: Well, I was browsing amazon a few days ago and game across this game, was highly considering getting it but the price was just crazy! So with a heavy heart I went to EB Games today (Gamestop for our U.S. friends) to look for something to play...Lo' and behold I found a used copy...for $24.99 I scooped it up and the Disc was BRAND NEW! I have been playing it for 4 hours and so far so good, The only thing that has disappointed me is there are no anime cut-scenes.
Summary: NIS has never been my favorite company. Oh, they make good games, but they're generally too lazy to actually put forth the effort needed to polish them into GREAT games. Soul Nomad is one such game. It has a great story, unique and engaging with twists and turns... now, if they had put as much effort into producing the game as they did in the script, maybe it would be better.
Summary: I feel sorry for Soul Nomad as a game that has one of the better stories of any JRPGs to come out in the past couple years; but in the end comes off feeling very lazily designed. Unfortunately the bad outweighs the good. It has an excellent story as far as JRPGs are concerned, the characters are quite likable and will grow on you. My major qualm being is that they spent no time developing cut scenes for the game...
Summary: Soul nomad at its heart is Ogre Tactics, each unit is made up of members with particular strengths and weaknesses. They each also have a preface for whom they target, archers, for example, prefer clerics. This means in your unit of 1-9 characters, the archer will mostly target the cleric.
Summary: I want to start by saying that I am in no way a person who thinks great, shiny graphics are the most important part of a game, or of any gameplay experience. I must say, though, that Soul Nomad left me feeling like the creators just got a little lazy in the graphic department. Needless to say they make up for it everywhere else, but it is just hard to settle in to find the full goodness of the game; the graphics just kind of put you off.
Summary: I didn't really expect much from Soul Nomad, but upon playing it, I was pleasently surprised. Taking strategy role playing to a more fun level, Soul Nomad changes things up from the Disgaea formula by shifting playing perspectives and the battle system. This time around, you battle in a 2-D side scrolling/isometric plane that features some well drawn sprites and effects.
