If this game had been more of a DQ style game with a true world map, exploration etc, then it would've been great.
I agree; looked like an interesting world, and wanted it to have an overworld map.
I really had to work to remain sort of objective for my review after the labyrinth-like mess that was the first city. Couldn't love it, but I've definitely played worse.
I agree, that first city is messed up; they should have all the Administration shite in one building; e.g., the Job and License offices in the first building along with the other offices, instead of having them just where-the-fuck ever.
The other cities are a little simpler; Lifeborn (the second city)'s setup was almost TOO simple.
What really peeves me are the elevators; I hate how you have to ascend/descend one floor at a time, and you can't just use the same elevator to go up or down, you use separate elevators to go up or down.
I'd like to be able to jump from the first floor to the fifth floor from whatever fuckign elevator I want.
