I've never read any of your work before but I'm impressed with what I see from this first bit & so it's good to see a new (to me) and strong writer at HG.

Pulling out my editor's pen, there's not much to find to try to correct. But that's what I do as RotWer away from the main topic.

Then again, the fact that you can just hold the X button to win most battles (including many boss battles) probably isn't a good thing. Hexyz Force is incredibly easy. This transition feels awkward and maybe "Unfortunately, Hexyz force is full of these too-easy battles." The description after that is well done and I think we've all played RPGs like that.

I enjoyed the small pokes at how HF tries to mess with tradition ("MP with an R") and the story is described succinctly and well, without forcing the reader to laugh at it ("rebellious furries.") I enjoyed the bit on Luffina, too. We've all been there. The score of 7 maybe seemed a bit high with the digs you took at it--maybe describe that the graphics are worth it, or par for your average JRPG?--but other than that, I liked this. Please write again!
