Wow! Somebody got it! I see this game getting knocked all the time but I really liked it. Atsuma goes through hell.

I felt the battle system while looking simple on the surface was pretty complex. And some of those Golems were just awesome.

Very good review. I really liked the way you wrote about the game. Maybe could have added a tad bit more more about the battle system though. It is quite unique.

You should probably check out Zig's review for the same game. He says near enough what I say but better and with more astrix. In fact, we originally played the game around the same time, but he got his review out first, and it seemed silly having so many staff reviews up for the game at the time. I replayed it recently and had something to say -- so now we have our third piece!

Anyway, thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure what else I could say about the battle system -- it's not really all that unique, but it did certainly work on a pretty awesome scale, making each stage require more planning out than the last.

What i should have mentioned is how the cast all wears the same coloured clothes as their element. Like LoD or the Power Rangers!

It's good to see this game getting more love. Anyone who has developed a newfound interest in FROM (hint to Demon's Souls players) should check it out. This company has cool ideas and fresh approaches.

Great review! From what I've played (up to the big-ass golem fight at the end of the London chapter, where I realized that due to certain plot events, I needed a new water-healer character and have been lazy about powering up the back-up golem one I have), you are spot on.

The story progression is great. One minute, it's comedic (the big strong guy getting motion sickness; the "Disgaea 'Mid-Boss'" ripping on the giggling mini-boss villain), but then something insanely tragic happens and you're wondering exactly why you were laughing just a few minutes ago.

You should have gained Mermaid from Yokohama. She won't need leveling; just pop her in the team and she'll do swimmingly.

Thanks again for the comments.
