I got this one last week. Now that I’ve been 20+ hours into it, I guess I’ll write down some impressions. First of all, I’m pleasantly surprised by the quality of the translation. XSeed has done a much better job than Agetec (who did Wild ARMs - Alter Code: F), and they preserved the voices and the opening song (even if redubbed).
I like the game system, it’s fst enough and there are platform-like parts that help in breaking up the monotony of dungeon crawling and fighting. I’m not too impressed with the story, though. The characters are really 2D personality-wise - they don’t really have any depth and the plot seems hole-ridden so far.
More on this when I finish it.
