It's real-time with pause, like BG and KOTOR.

i thought Skies on the GC was the best version? less encounters, better graphics?

It is, but the music is slightly worse, it isn't an exact reproduction of the DC version.

It's great for the first few hubs, but some of the areas near the end of the game felt like they were rushed. It's particularly annoying if you chose to focus on non-combat skills early on and then end up with a weakened character once you're forced to hack and slash through the latter stages. The
Code:
sewers
were not in the slightest bit fun.

I hope this is actually going to have towns to explore like the main series and not just an endless series of battles like most SRPGs.

Phantasia and Destiny play pretty similarly, but Phantasia edges it for the story and characters. I liked Destiny at the time but nothing was particularly memorable about it. Eternia just feels like Tales-by-numbers, "been there, done that." It doesn't help that the voice acting is pretty terrible and the character designs are awful. I mean, who wants this as their protaganist?

The platforming elements aren't THAT hard. Be a man >:|


It's been a long while since I played it but I remember it being almost impossible to judge where you land due to the lack of a shadow.

I'm not to sure how the first installment was; but the second one doesn't make me feel all to awful to hear about this... =/


Landstalker shares very little in common with Time Stalkers. It's an isometric Zelda-clone with incredibly hard platform elements.

Just Dragon Quest IV, I don't have a DS yet but this has me sold on both.

Code:
I spent ten fucking hours grinding just to beat Empyrea, and after I stomped her ass, I got really bored of the game. The game just fucking drags.


You must have been doing something very wrong to have that much trouble with the game. I thought it was the easiest game in the series, and the only place I found myself underleveled was the battle with
Code:
Dhoulmagus.


The thing to remember in any DQ is that spells that are normally completely useless in other RPGs (like status effects and buffing) actually work, and on many occasions even on bosses.

Just lost an entire afternoons progress in Wizardry: Tale of the Forsaken Land after I accidentally discarded one of the most important items in the game, and I don't really have any other choice but to reload my save from a few hours ago. This is easily one of the best dungeon crawlers I've played, but the total lack of save points outside the town is very frustrating.

I'm very glad Atlus is still supporting the PS2 after all these years, I can put off choosing my next console purchase for a while yet.

It certainly looks very similar.

Golden Sun seems to basically be Beyond the Beyond 2.0. Except with less victory jumps.


Superficially, they are similar but Golden Sun is by far the better game. Everything in BtB moves at a snails pace, including the battle system, whereas GS is blazingly-fast in comparison. The encounter rate isn't anywhere near as high and there's actual interactivity in the dungeons. And like I said in another thread, neither of them have brilliant original storylines but none of Camelot's other games did either.

I also thought Golden Sun was Beyond the Beyond: Portable Edition*, so what the hell do I know.


They're both turn-based RPGs developed by the same team, but GS is so much more refined and better executed. It doesn't have a ridiculous encounter rate nor is it slow and clunky like BtB is. Sure, GS is fairly generic, but so are most of Camelot's other RPGs and those are usually regarded as classics.

Since it appears that P3 overseas doesn't have a language option what about subtitles are those included?


Nope, everything is in English. As far as I know, most niche games don't get translated, although there's almost always a delay before anything gets released here.

I'm surprised by the european FES release. Though it's a good thing, the diference between the US and Europe is ridiculous. 7 months? For what exactly? Well, the same happened with P3, if not worse.


I don't understand it either, since as far as I'm aware Koei didn't bother translating it into any other languages (there isn't a language option in P3), and there's no way converting it into PAL takes that long.
