Summary: There are only three faults i see in this game:Terrible voice acting,storyline starts off a bit lame,and the lag/loading time. But everything else is...light-hearted fun.Don't let the controls scare you-when you get the hang of it,does the game get FUN.And even when you get the hang of it,the game has a perfect amount of difficulty. Characters develope very well,you do have a choice in what to say that really does effect the storyline, and the music is incredible.
Summary: When I first picked up the game I thought 'man, what did I just spend my money on?' until I started playing the game. The controls are a bit confusing for the first ten minutes of game play, but that's why the have a section where you learn to play the game. The in-game music was surprisingly good, in my veiw. The character devolopement in the game is absolutely amazing.
Summary: I recently rented this game from a friend, I loved it at first because it reminded me of a traditional roleplaying game, but one thing i noticed is that the control for the steambots were horrible and complicated, but I got used to them in about 30 minutes. One thing I liked about this game is that the characters each had a unique personality and you could actually choose to be mean to them or be nice. As for character customization, amazing.
Conclusion: Geeze…. thank you! I loved this game as well but also thought it was flawed. The way this was handled just makes me want to se a next gen version of this title. Seriously for wither the 360 or PS3 I would pick this one up in a flash.
Conclusion: I can see being overwhelmed by this game easily, especially if you’re OCD. I just picked up what I felt like doing and ignored everything else, so I was very relaxed as I went through it. Though this game is both Japanese and an RPG, it’s an RPG in the classical sense (i.e. you play a role) – it has no experience or leveling, just Trotmobile configuration, so it’s somewhere along the lines of (Armored Core + Harvest Moon) / 2 = Armored Moon? Harvest Core?
Conclusion: Sounds so good I might take it off the shelf and give it a another try. Being a big Irem fan, I bought it the day it came out. I tried it for a while, got frustrated and overwhelmed and put it back in the case. I could see the promise in the game, but the amount of things to keep track of (I’m something of an OCD completionist) as each new facet of the game was revealed made my brain hurt. And that was only 3 hours in.
Conclusion: I was just thinking about picking this game up again after I finish up Odin Sphere. I really like this game. A lot. It has a lot of charm that fills in the faults. The only thing that really bothered me was the plentiful and lengthy loading times. If they fix that up in the sequel, it’ll be good news. It’s nice to see someone else playing this game and giving it a good note or two.
