well the game was developed in a short period of time so maybe that's why.

but... damn

 

"Recycled content, excessive grinding, boring fetch quests, and bad save points are just some of its smaller shortcomings. What's more concerning is its inability to give you reason to care about the characters or the journey. In a generation where RPGs are pushing the boundaries with better storytelling and unique worlds, this just isn't going to cut it. It's sad to see a franchise that once captivated me continue to fall from grace."

If you guys want a good JRPG that just came out, you guys should definitely check out Odin Sphere.

Nice joke. Tells me all I know to know about the reviewers



Damn, this is sad. Can't say I'm not surprised

But I will play it eventually

Same here. It did have it's short comings and I never managed to complete it, but I enjoyed it for what it was.

With that said, I was never going to play this as they decided not to release it on any of my gaming platforms anyway.

Its up to 60 now.... still thats waaaay lower than I expected it to be.

 

That said.. Not sure how much I trust reviewers scores here.

Sometimes something scores bad, but I still rather enjoy it.



Sadly, what I expected.

Yup.

I'd be careful, as this type of stuff can backfire. On the both of you.

OT: Still going to check it out.
