Some of the NPC's are looking....really low poly.... Square's PSP method is bleeding into their PS3 game here (high quality faces, low quality everything else).
I do still get floored by the monster designs though. I honestly still love when Behemoth launches himself into the screen. But otherwise it's interesting that my eyes have "gotten used to" PS3 graphics to finally find them old/dated looking. Still pretty, obviously, yet able to pick up on it.
The gameplay looks good, but some early impressions are saying even normal battles can take some time (I'm hoping this is because people are rushing and trying to finish the game than build Light's stats). Some are also bummed about the time mechanic, but that was an inevitability I think.
Still, I'm in Kyuu's boat: If it's fun, then I'm totally in.
It looks like, despite barely much mention in the previous titles, Bhuneveize is taking centre stage this time: Pseudo-Serah is probably his version of Chrono Cross' Harley if I had to guess.
