Eh, other than the last two hours of MGS3, I felt this was the only MGS in the series with believable emotional content. The facial models added so much character and realism to each scene. I'm not really a huge gamer, so my critiques on that end aren't anything special.

I do however believe that we all came into this series knowing that Kojima has his head firmly planted up his own ass. The game reflects as much, it'd much rather do it's own thing, laugh at it's own jokes, etc with pretty sparse consideration for your enjoyment and this criticism is perfectly valid. I just don't care, I'm there for the drama and the storytelling. Most of us realize that this game has a pretty vital bead on some interesting subjects. The political allegory is a bit far fetched but it's ambitious and for all of its faults I still enjoyed it.

I also think that just sort of flailing around and waving your hands in the air like a child, saying that 'we all just have opinions, everything in an opinion' is completely useless and I'm personally ashamed that you'd rather derail a perfectly fine conversation for the sake of sparing yourself the realization that no game is perfect than tackle those issues head on like A REAL SOLDIER.


I'm only doing that because I am SICK of having disputes on forums. I have had enough for a lifetime and don't want to do it again. My opinion is the only one that matters to me.

I have Sigma for the PS3 and enjoyed it, but this game released to closely to MGS4 so I got that instead. I plan on getting this eventually though, it just wasn't as important to me as MGS4 was. That and I didn't want to buy two new games at full price.

I wasn't being an ass over at GT. That was just purely my opinion. I didn't aim it towards anyone, hence why I said "people" in general.

Guys? It's a video game, not the second coming. Just enjoy it and don't get worked up that others don't consider it the pinnacle of human achievement.


Agreed. Opinions are well...opinions. You can't change their mind, so just get over it and move on.

I rented Enchanted Arms and quit after about an hour so, and I NEVER do that. That game was crap, imo.

Like Dade I too am in nostalgia mode and am playing Anachronox for PC.  What a fantastic console-style RPG.  American aesthetics with Japanese play mechanics.  I've been craving something like this from a JRPG for a long time and only recently I thought "you know what?  Everything I crave is in Anachronox."  I got it on Half for, like 7 bucks and it's worth it.  

Yeah, the beginning is slow going, but exploring The Bricks is cool.  Environments like this are so what I crave in JRPGs.  


It starts slow, but it's totally awesome, and the characters are oozing with personality.  Really makes me wish there was a sequel. :(



The slow start's no biggie for me.  Revelations: Persona and Xenogears were both slow starters, but once I hit the 10 hour mark on both, the games really opened up.  I'd put FF7 in there as well, but the initial 5 or so hours spent in Midgar was easily my favorite part of the game.  I'm one of the weirdos who wanted more Midgar.


I wanted more Midgar too! I thought it was awesome.

I went and saw The Incredible Hulk as well. I thought it was pretty good.

Beat MGS4. One of the best games of all time, period.

Oh man how did I forget about Chrono Cross. That game was amazing, and had a pretty unique approach to turn-based battles (the execution anyway). LOVE that game.

Isn't there like... one turn-based RPG on PS3, which is a port of a crappy 360 RPG?


Yep (sorry Pat)

Decided to revive this because reviews are starting to surface. This looks like it could be the lowest rated RPG so far this gen.

I can't say I'm surprised, I don't really like Success much (the developers).

Other than FF8, worst RPG ever made.


FF8 bored me senseless.


You're both crazy :P

My favorite turn-based RPG battle system is also the Press-Turn system from later Megami Tensei titles.  It's genius.  

My favorite action-based RPG battle system is the Linear Motion battle system from the Tales games.  The AI is quite competent and unlike Star Ocean games, I never have to babysit them.  I'm normally not a fan of realtime battling (I'm a turn based guy at heart), but Tales' battle engine I love.  Too bad the series itself is so lackluster.  I'd like to see a more dynamically scripted sci-fi style RPG with the Tales battle system.  

My least favorite RPG battle system is ATB.  It is rather clunky.  The bar filling up is "hurry up and wait" and it's not fun being pounded on while I'm navigating through menus.  FFX had an incredible battle system but after that it's "sorry, but we're going back to ATB for X-2, modified ATB for XII, and ATB again for XIII."  I'd like to see FF adopt FFX's battle system as the standard instead of the clunky ATB nonsense.

As a fighting game fan as much as an RPG fan, a good combat system that makes sense and is fun is important to me.  You spend a healthy portion of RPGs engaged in battle, so any battle system where I want to pick fights solely for the sake of picking fights is a good one.  Tales and Megami Tensei do that for me.


FFXII's was called ADB I think (active dimension or something like that). And I always had to babysit the AI characters in the Tales games. I prefer SO3 because you could switch characters on the fly. It was genius in that kind of battle system. I also like the freedom SO3 gives with movement over the limited movement in Tales games.

Well GameSpot and IGN both gave it a 10.
