Personally I'm a bit surprised by both the negative reviews.
I mean, it's not probably not a game for everyone, but I really can't say it doesn't have a plot - and a dozens of side plots if you bother exploring them.

Sure, one CAN rush through the game, but that's not the point of it. If you take your time and explore to your hearts content, I think Fragile will be a great experience.

I'm not through yet, but near the end. I especially enjoyed reading up all the grafitti stuff and messages left behind. I also do my best to find all items laying around (or beating them out of the enemy).
Personally, I do not think they are 'randomly' placed around or put in illogical places.

Interstingly enough most of my friends playing the game had problems with the camera, combos and controll too... I think perhaps they are trying to hard? In the end they enjoyed watching me more and I did my best to explain just what I was doing and stuff...
Like you controll the camera by pointing the flashlight at the edge of the screen to make it move around and things like that.

Fragile is... a special case. I think if you allow yourself to enjoy it -slowly- you will be able to.
I had it rented out, so I can't finish yet, but I really liked it enough to buy it as soon as I get it used for cheap. I'm not sure how much of a re-play value it has, but I'll certainly play it again :P

While I'd just wish I could play Rorona in a language I understand already, I most certainly don't mind the knowledge that a follow up is in production ^^

During the week I play around 30-60 min on DS, as that is while I travel between my home and work.

Aside from that it depends entirely on my mood, other time-taking activities and the game.

I had a time where I easily played 6 hours a day AND almost all week-end. Now keeping my flat decently clean and having a full time job often keeps me away from it. Also, since I'm spending my whole 40 hs I work a week before the PC often does kill the mood for more time before a console.

Lately I've been playing less again, but when my sis comes for a week-long visit and brings AC2 over and I'm getting SO4 my time might raise drastically again. *shrugs* Or not.

I am however, rather playing games than watching TV. The only reason I HAVE a TV is for my consoles ;P

I do that to get goodies as I probably wouldn't get anywhere anytime soon if I didn't, but the high rate of encounters is still not exactly my taste, I guess. Or it's the overload of options I suppose. Right now I've set the game aside and plan on letting it rest for about a month, then re-try again.

This methode has helped me out in other games I couldn't really settle in at the start and I'm hoping to make this work agian :) I've heard to many positive responses concerning the story, while managing to have gotten around being spoiled.
I guess if all fails, I'll have to pick up a walkthrough and just check what works best instead of figuring out by myself as I usually prefer.

But thanks for the tip. I'd have probably forgotten about it in my 'time-out' time ;P

Since I'm on it. Did I understand that right, that Devil Summoner 2 is a sequel to the first one?
=> I wonder if I can play it if I didn't finish the first one.

I've played 'Lucifer's Call' as well as Digital Devil Saga 1 (missed out on 2) and Devil Summoner 1 before I managed to get my hands on P3.

I've got to admit, while I liked LC most upon this point, I really got hooked on P3, thought I did think that the characters are a bit... emotional flat. With P4 the series made an 'instant favourite' to me. I've also got the re-made P1 here (imported), but... while the story so far has been interesting, the game-play just can't keep me on the game. I don't mind most old-school style rpgs, but...
I really hate having to place the characters and having to watch out wether to use the normal weapons or the guns and all that >< It' not fun at all considering the rate the battles pop up.

Generally I think there are just too many options on how to handle battles. For me anyway.
I'll probably have to sell the game and will be able to focus more on Devil Survivors and look forward to P3P. I don't suppose there is a US-release date for it yet, is there?
