SMT3's music wasn't really metal. More industrial.

I didn't really like SO3 from a gameplay standpoint much, though. I can put up with stupid stories (Though I prefer games without main, central storylines to ones with stupid stories. So expanding this, I can put up with main-storyline-less games that have badly written sidequests. Or something) but it was just a bunch of little things (dungeons too hard to get 100% in, really huge but fairly empty dungeons, battle system felt slower and confusinger than 2's or something, I dunno).

also, the sense of scale in the game started driving me nuts. Outdoors areas were tiny and supposed to represent huge stretches of land, whereas cities actually DID have reasonable scales, which is rare for JRPGs.

Persona 3's system is essentially press-turn :|

Unless you get back-attacked in DDS, or go into battle unmutated.

Also levelling "MP restoratives cost too much/are too rare!" as a complaint against recent SMT games is a bit moot as you get so damn MUCH MP.

The game felt like it had a solid core of gameplay if you could look past the annoyances.


I really couldn't give a flying fuck about this game because it's for some expensive future technology I'll NEVER, EVER OWN, but "solid gameplay mechanics if you can look past some annoyances" applies to, uh, most of the games your average RPG fan would consider canonical.

Especially considering how annoying grinding is and how many are from the grindfest era. FF4 much?

Just one example, though.

I thought people out of the party only got half XP. Or was that FFVII?

ACF's translation craps out about half way through. I mean seriously, seriously just falls apart. It's never great, but it's good for awhile, but you hit a certain point and there's this town where TWO NPCs spit out garbled text (Portions of three OTHER sentences from elsewhere in the game), it gets incredibly dry and silly, and comma splicing issues, for instance, get a lot more abundant.

Also, every town in the game's about half as small as in the original, and the emphasis on puzzle solving felt really, really reduced.

More importantly, the game really advertised how it added three new characters. You barely use any of them at all until the last dungeon. I think you can get a few of them briefly throughout the game, but you only get them permanently at the very end. This also means that the combination skills thing is also more or less something you're not going to see till the very end, either.

It's also not hard. Not by a long shot.

Who shagged the sheep to death in South England?

Mesh shagged the sheep to death in South England!

Who, me?

Yes, you!

Couldn't be!

Then who?

You could make a party consisting entirely of pandas. I want this :(

BoFIV was pretty easy, though. And the first two games seemed to provide a challenge from a massive level grinding point of view, since there's no real strategic way to handle battles. Just keep attacking, spamming your best attacks spells, and healing, basically.

SoA's battle system wasn't great but I'm digging the rest of the game so far. The battle system's there, but the main point seems to be exploring.

Ship battles are neat though.

I liked BK's battle system but I can't really get into the game, which is odd as there's nothing I really dislike about it (except the voice acting, which is decent enough in battle and turnoffable enough everywhere else).
