Yeah, my bad, ACF's music was good. I like how the overworld deviates from Morricone's original considerably more anyway.
PDS - Finished disc 1 (at like two hours). I love the style of this game. I don't think it's terribly fun to play.
Dungeon designs have yet to get away from being super simplistic. There's no real variety or strategy in how you deal with the battle (stay in the green area till you fully charge, move to the enemy's weakspot and combo attack), and random battles are too frequent for how long they can last -- also you can set them off by rotating apparently? Not much variety in the special attacks, either. Your special form gets on unique buff based on the form and you can swap stats mid battle, but all of the attacks are... just damage dealing attacks that get progressively strong.
I do like some of the neat optional stuff, like being able to save the baby sandworm in the desert, but... for the price it commands on eBay? For what it's worth, I like Zwei and Orta a lot more.
