Sands of Destruction [DS RPG] - Anyone have this game?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Sands of Destruction [DS RPG] - Anyone have this game?

I saw the anime and didn't like it much though that was a non canon spinoff. I'm slightly interested in this game though gonna wait for reviews to see if the story is good.

From my experience, reviews aren't the best place to turn when trying to find out if a game has a good story or not. One reviewer told me Tales of Vesperia had a trashy story -__-

 

On topic: This game is on my radar, i'd like to watch the anime but as a nasty message informed me earlier today, the videos on Funimation are not available in my region. On that note, does anyone happen to know if there was any talk of a European release date for this game?



How technical is your game?

My friend said that Sands of Destruction is an awesome game. He also said this game has an impressive soundtrack, good combat system and sometimes the voice acting is annoying.

 

@IxisNaugus

No announcements for Europe yet.



@Hisiru

you should probably remove that spolier from your post as that character that you are refering to is the main character of the game...

 

Anyways I forgot the game was released, so I guess i'll get my friend to buy it for me since he owes me for breaking one of my older game, I've been anticipating it since the anime finished I can't wait to play it.

I am surprised that it was made by the guys that made Xenogears and that the combat system is similar, i'm currently playing xenogears on disk 2 and I love both the story and gameplay in that game so that fatc basically took any notion I had about this game being bad out of ym mind.



Hey Words of Wisdom when do you plan to respond to your thread?

@DeotoxSlayer
Sorry, I didn't knew that he was the main character but the real spoiler is what he did and not what he is.

I will remove what I said.



Will be getting it soon. I've been hyped for it since we were using it by it's Japanese name - World Destruction.

Sure.

I'm just over an hour into Sands of Destruction and it's pretty fun so far. 

Pros

  • Tons of voice acting
  • Amusing dialog/writing
  • Morte (character) is awesome
  • Interesting attack customization
  • Nice use of split screens in battle
  • Great visual feedback on interactable parts of the environment
  • Area maps are nicely done

Cons

  • Dialog scenes go on for a long time (you can basically put your DS down for 2-5 minutes at a time at points)
  • Sprite graphics are at that awkward place between really good and really bad
  • Random encounters
  • Semi-high random encounter rates (not Black Sigil high but still a bit high IMO)
  • Menu is a bit confusing at first


So i got the game and I love it so ar but I seem to have stumbled a bit, I'm at the boss fight where you Fight Porkus Rex and i'm really not sure how to beat him, I mean he nearly 1 hit KO's all my party members, is there any trick to beating him?
