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: 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.
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?
Summary: Simply put, this game is amazing. It's a non-linear adventure in which the player is immersed into a steam-punk world with the freedom to make whatever choices they want. You can play through the storyline, which has different outcomes based on decisions made by the player, you can try to make a living, or you can just do whatever you want.
Summary: This game is absolutely brilliant. It combines roleplaying and other genres into one massive game. I like the fact that you are free to roam about and do what you want as well as follow the story at your own pace. There is so much to do in this game and it's a shame that this game doesn't have the reputation that it deserves. Give it a try if you want something different instead of the usual final fantasy stuff.
Excerpt: Steambot Chronicles is developed by Irem, and published by Atlus on US. This game is like the Armored Core Series but a slighly different and a little mix with The Sims Series. You'll be playing a boy named Vanilla. There are many mini games here and sidequests to make you busy playing this game, like pool, you can also design your house and many more!
Pros: Good game , great graphics and the songs were very nice !
Cons: Short playing hours, if you always continue the story
Summary: Personally i find this game quite fun. The mecha combat is quite difficult to begin with but you get the hang of it eventually. there is a lot of free roaming which is also quite good. The graphics arnt amazing but they are ok and the anime styling is down to personal taste...personally i like it but some dont.
