Er... crap, I was referring to Vesperia.
SO4's story is balls.
I'm playing it now and I don't even remember it. Partly because I skipped every cutscene that exceeded two minutes (98%).
The battle system on the other hand... Except, after getting Arumat in the party, I realized how I use Edge the least - how's that for breaking gaming convention?!
I loved Vesperia. Dawn of the New World gets a lot of flack, but it was tolerable. If anything, there is a lingering stench of "half-assed" that the game reeks of. A shame after two years the original Symphonia cast couldn't change its wardrobe. Or the fact that by the end of the game, I wasn't using the monsters they game prides itself on, or the stupid stipulation for achieving the best ending.
