Pfft, site's called rpgfan, but no one tried out this game. What kind of fans are you! Fine, I'll give a few words about it.
I caved and bought this last night. It's a tactical rpg....sort of. It's grid based, and you have your units and your enemy units and you fight on maps with somewhat randomized layouts. Sometimes there are obstacles, sometimes no, haven't seen a pattern yet. As I have just started I only have the main character and a new archer chick, so battles are pretty tame at the moment. The ratio is a bit staggering at times though, my latest being about 15 vs 2, and 8 of the enemies were higher level than I was (slaughtered me btw). If I had to give a good comparison, it's easy at times like Disgaea, and then slams on you like Hoshigami. Not much in terms of special abilities and such yet, couple of skills for each character that do better damage or have better range, but nothing impressive. I don't like the lack of confirmation when moving, since if your character has 1 action left (sub turns in game) if you accidentally move the wrong way, lol oh well. It's not too horrible though, dying in battle leaves you outside your last fight with one hp and a sense of failure, no need to reload last save. It's not horrible, but I'm not feeling it as well as something like FFTactics or even Disgaea.
Story is pretty minimalist. You got transported to some other world while meeting your rival for a duel. Bastard snuck up on you and hit you with some magic that sent you through a portal, nice guy for sure. New world people see you as the reason for monsters everywhere, everyone is scared. Proceed to fetch quests and monster killing to clear your name and find a way home. It's cute, but far from award winning.
Music is pretty tolerable, some of it's crap, sone of it's pretty addicitive. I like the fight musics I've heard so far, picks up as you go. The title screen has a pretty mellow theme too, I write this while preparing to start playing again, lol.
The art design.....yeah I don't like it. The characters all look strange, like a 15 year old was drawing in a doodle book. The areas so far are bright and all, but npcs all blend in to the background, I mean I ran past one guy for a quest 20 times cuz he looked like a signpost at first. Enemies look cool though, especially skeletons so far. I could hate the style easily, but I don't, so whatever, this isn't gonna be the de facto defision behind a purchase for anyone.
Speaking of purchasing, for 15 bucks, I can say I dislike it. It's addicitive enough, though the extra teammate has slowed my progression of power leveling due to split status enhancing "Rainbow Pearls" ( currency used to increase stat points). Other than a sudden MOON JUMP in difficulty, which could be because I went somewhere I'm not supposed to be at yet..., it's mind numbingly hard. Hopefully when I get a healer or a new party member I can control battles better, but til then, as the game suggests, back to the grind.
If you asked me if ut's worth buying, I'd say sure if you have psn+, 12 bucks is pretty cheap for it.
