    But if you read that IGN review, it's quite biased. Everything he says is bad about the game could be seen in a positive light. I'm fairly optimistic about this game, since I tried the Japanese version and liked it.

    The DS desperately needs a good English RPG.

    Thanks! How can you mess up a game so bad?! I've seen games that were crappy for a reason but this doesn't have one... [​IMG]

    It is that bad. Make sure NOT to buy titles like this, to send a clear message to developers that we won't tolerate crap.

    Out of boredom I gave it another go for a hour, Famitsu game it a few 7 out of 10 and a 8 out of 10, but then they also rated Sonic Riders highly and a few other dud games.

    Its your cliched bog standard RPG, the same as any other pre-32 bit console RPG, nothing new, totally generic. dull story, characters you've seen a million times before. Its not terrible, it could be fun if your are a die hard RPG gamer, but its not something anyone should buy. Lacks heart and imagination. And I've already forgotten where I left the game, what I was doing infact I was playing Tetris in my head I got so bored.

    Without hijacking this thread into a huge debate on the subject, (it's been covered many times) I purchase games. A lot of games. Too many in fact, when I truly could pirate them all and save myself a lot of money. For me, I feel as if the titles that I buy shows those particular companies that I like their game(s), and would like to continue to see them produce more for my enjoyment. I don't support buying crap like this particular title, because it sends developers the wrong message - that any garbage will be tolerated, and that shouldn't be the case. Since I game so much, I have to give something back to all the people that have given me so many wonderful hours of entertainment. It's that simple to me. Not everyone agrees with that point of view, and I wouldn't expect anyone too either.

    I'm not a saint by any means, as I pirate more than my fair share - just like many of the other members around here. However, I want to continue playing GOOD games in the future, so I have to direct some dollars to those avenues that I see fit. That way I can both continue to buy what I like and pirate the rest.

    That's my point of view, take it as you will - just whatever you do, don't spend money on this game! [​IMG]
