buy it locally, not online

Summary: It's a great game, in a great trillogy. I was, however, unable to find it online, as my Amazon order was cancelled due to problems with the retailer... My suggestion is - Definitely buy the game; it's great, especially if you're a fan of either of the other two games in the trillogy - but buy it at a local game retailer like Gamestop, EB Games, Game Crazy, or maybe Circuit City (not Best Buy - they overprice everything, and probably don't stock this game anyways(it's too...
Summary: The Legend of Heroes is one of Nihon Falcom's flagship series alongside Ys and Dragon Slayer, which the Legend of Heroes series was part of before becoming its own franchise. The second series of games in The Legend of Heroes series is known as the Gagharv Trilogy, with North America seeing all three thanks to Bandai-Namco, although they got the order of the games wrong, first localizing the second game of the trilogy, A Tear of Vermillion while passing it off as the...
Summary: I received this game last Friday, but I finished this in a week (2-3 hour gameplay/day) if you played the last one (Legends of Heroes I), the gameplay is the same, but pet system is a little bit different (you can monitor and feed it to get some status help) the summon monsters are good at first (you may need a lot of mind potions), but they don't grow throughout the game, and become useless on final boss fight the storyline is OK, but it may be kinda messed up in Castle...
Summary: If you were caught up in the original RPG's, like Final Fantasy for the NES or PS1, you will enjoy this franchise. The graphics are cute and it is a typical Japanese RPG. I was addicted to Legends of Heroes III, that I had to go and get one and two. They don't go hand in hand together, but they are entertaining and have wonderful translation mess ups! The story line is good, not great, but some of the translations make up for that.
Summary: As with any game, Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch has its good and its bad. Pros: Decent storyline, even though it takes awhile to really get to. Even though some of the characters are rather exaggerated, some of them are quite fun. Cons: Characters, while they all have their own personalities, aren't always written all that believably. Boring game play: go to town, get mission. Complete mission, go back to town. Repeat throughout game. Long ending scene.
