    Man, so good to see this come out in English... Etrian Odyssey is the best hardcore series ever. Period. Improving the gameplay of something that was already high caliber makes me a happy gamer.

    man i wish i wasnt such a pansy or i'd play the first two.
    i have however recently found my love for first person dungeon crawling in SMT:Strange Journey.
    this game looks pretty good and i think i might be ready for this.

    It uses the same engine as Etrian Odyssey. Only difference really is that EO will kick your ass. Often.

    ...in this, you apparently can get 1/5th of the exp needed to level up in one fight


    i remember you had to grind hours in the first one for a single level

    god how I hated that, the only time you really could level just a bit freely was when there was any kind of event that kept healing you

    honestly, I liked the game, but all of that useless leveling for a pixel more on the exp bar made me abandon it
    having a game and then just reducing exp by 99% doesnt make it good

    I've started using experience point modifier cheats on most rpgs with the no encounter toggle cheat (Only 2X-5X tho). It still feels a little bit like cheating, but seriously, I can't take the combat encounters every 10 seconds anymore. [​IMG] Esp. when the combat tactics are so simple/boring and repetitive.

    I wonder if I should finish the second one...it's been in my MicroSD for ages and I've only played for a couple of hours.

    Well besides the really slow xp curves in the first game i think what would make if better for me would be to have some char animation like in Phantasy star IV on the Genesis, fight were a mix of 1st and 3rd person and that was awesome ^^

    Otherwise EO is really great, drawing ur own map although being tedious at time is pretty kewl imo [​IMG]

    I'll be adding this 2 my AK2i when it comes out

    The boss FOEs in the second game mostly addressed this problem. They were a very good XP income, and with so many sidequests, you were never really wandering aimlessly just grinding, you were mostly always after a goal.
