    The original was never released in Europe, so I suppose there's no need for it.

    So what are people thinking about this title?
    Looked at some screenshots, and it looked a lot like FF:tactics-type gameplay.
    Which is a good thing. So I checked out the review from the RPGDreamers website. It was a horrible review.

    The review can be summed up with "It sucks because it's too hard and I couldn't understand the story. I give it 8/10" Wait, what?

    Agreed, but you know... just once I want the hero to go "HAHA, YOU LOST, NOW PREPARE TO BE BEHEADED AND DRENCHED IN MY MANJUICE!" instead of it always being about goodness in hearts.

    I particularly didn't like the 3d-ness of this game. That is all.

    Gameplay-wise, the controls could of been better, but the game is decent enough.

    The game is good if you like tactics, it's hard to beat, but not impossible, and introduces a new turn system which is VERY interesting, the spell (coins) system isn't quite good but also slightly different and interesting, I think it's worth a try if you liked fft or vandal hearts

    Get ready for another dump flood. According to my sources, a whopping 18 or so DS games are scheduled to be released on Oct. 23 in the US. [​IMG]

    This is a great game and well worth the play if you like SRPG, or if you like GREAT games lol. One of the better ports to come to DS. It's not as polished as say Luminous Arc, but what do you expect from a PSX port? The gameplay is certainly a lot more deeper than LA, and therefore more satisfying. It has a lot of original gameplay concepts that work really well.
    In short I give it a 8/10 and although I still haven't finished it (so many games on other systems to get through) I will definately see it through at some point.
    Don't overlook it just because of the weird name, or the lack of publicity. It was great when it first came out and is still great now. I just wonder if anything has changed from the USA release..

    Didn't really like this because of the aesthetics.. Looked like a similar game to Luminous Arc with not very good graphics.

    Great game, and being able to rotate the playing field instantly makes it better than Luminous Ark. But, way too many enemies! The second fight took me 50 minutes to beat! It wasn't hard, but it takes time to dispose of all those enemies! [​IMG]
