Did not expect that.

While it's nice to see a 'real' Aquaplus game come west finally, reviews of this game in Japan were kind of middling so I'm not sure how excited I should be.

I assume this is tied to the lore of the anime bearing the same name?? If so count me in. Even if it isn't the best, it is FAR too in line with my personal tastes to ignore.

Okay, I'll ask the same question here.

Has anyone played it? Is it a "typical" SRPG, or does it do anything new?

And why do people think we're getting more SRPGs now?

Hopefully this is going to offset some of the fanservicey type games.

I really recommend this game. This game seems forgotten by most but it surprised me how much I like it. I am in chapter 2. The game has so much story that it takes sometimes hours between battles but it is an interesting story with interesting characters. I think this is maybe the biggest positive surprise of 2014. The story is loosely based on ancient Rome and it feels a bit like Jeanne D'arc which is high praise from me.

I hated giving it a score when I reviewed it.  The story's good, the gameplay's good... I just felt like it was too much story.  You're not exaggerating at all about hours between battles, although thankfully that problem gets a little better as the game goes on.  The story stuff is still long later, it's just not as long as it is in the beginning.

Nothing can be as bad as the fucking 3000 hours of kingdom hearts 2's Roxas intro crap.

At least you got to PLAY Roxas' intro.  Having played both recently (I'm currently wrapping up stuff in KH2 before finishing up the final world), I'd definitely rate Roxas' intro as more enjoyable than reading text for a couple of hours to start TtT2.  And I freaking love reading... but that said, I did go into TtT2 looking for a game, not a visual novel.

This just the way Tears to Tiara 1&2, Utawarerumono, and other similar games are. They are mostly VNs with some gameplay portions added in. For people who like VNs but want to have a bit of actual gameplay instead of solely reading through 20 or so hours of text.

Pretty much why I ultimately gave this one a pass. Every impression I got from various articles, screenshots, previews and reviews basically gave me the impression that for all of the game's text and dialogue, the plot itself seemed far more akin to something out of the early Shining Force games rather than something like FFT (it might have helped if any of the character designs beyond the MC's didn't suck).

It's no FFT, but I think the plot's actually pretty good.  There's some stuff they could have cut out for time purposes, but that's true of a lot of games.  (But yeah, animation and NPC models were definitely not the top priority.)

I don't mind a lot of talking as long as they're saying something interesting

Which is unfortunately why Shining Resonance is seriously starting to bore me...

I don't know what to add, I tried to warn you about that one. When it went from "Play as a Dragon" to "Play as a bargain bin BoF Ryu knockoff", I knew that it wasn't reaching for the high hanging fruit.
