    There's a clean (untrimmered and, of course, unpatched) version making the rounds. With AKAIO v1.7.1 there's a save issue. But it works fine with Supercard DSTwo.

    Well, they don't have it in their top ten now but when FFCCMLAAK, FFCCEOT, FFCCMLAAD and FFCCTCB were released, all of them were on the top ten for quite a while. Same with FFXIII for 360.

    It's definitely a bit different so far than what I was expecting. The difficulty seems about on par with what I expected, but the simplicity of the battle menu gives me some pause. No option to guard, no option to run, and you can't choose which enemy to attack. I don't know...I think maybe they streamlined it a bit too much. Still, it's Matrix, so I'll give it at least a good 10 hours before I throw in the towel.

    You get the runaway option after you get the first crown.

    I love the graphics, it's like wandering through a watercolour painting.

    You can see all your gems by going to the crowns menu for your characters and selecting to enhance the crown. There you'll see how many gems you've collected.

    EDIT: Doesn't really matter if you're getting random freezes, sorry.

    Ok, so I had high expectations of this game. Then I tried it. Thought the character art looked odd, and the colors seemed a bit too dark, hoped this would change once the game started. Well, it didn't, and the graphical style turns me off massively to this game. I find the music so far to be incredibly underwhelming. The tune in the first town can't compare to a normal FF town tune. The tunes on the overworld and in battle don't fit well either. Anyways, I started the game and went to the king, who told me to go kill some witch to the north and save his princess daughter, who I named earlier. So I walk to the north into the most ridiculously dark cave I have ever seen in a video game. I have to squint and stare hard at the screen to see the walls. (I hope there's a torch or something that I can get) Then I go to the second floor. One of the guys I named pops out of nowhere basically saying "You need magic!", and then I'm attacked by a Minotaur, which easily wiped the floor with my two party members, sending my main character back to town alone. This is when I turned off the game.

    Am I just being too harsh? I might give this game another chance tonight, but I have difficulty being patient with it when the art style and music turn me off to it so much.

    If you had talked to every NPC like anyone would on a classic RPG (which this tried to imitate) you'd know you need a Torch, and you'd also know some other battle tips.
