Mar 19, 2013Alais is correct: Millennium 4: Beyond Sunset is NOT the game to play first in the series. For so many reasons, it's worth it to start at Millennium 1 and play through. That said, the first time I played this installment, I did something I never do: I skipped most of the side quests so I could find out what happens next. Marine and her friends are up against the clock and running out of time, and the plot takes one nail-biting turn after another. Then I went back and played it again because if you do play all the chapters, and do you plan to play Millennium 5 when it's released, then you've got a LOT of work that really needs to be done before you complete the main quest. Without spoiling anything, the characters need to be leveled up two different ways, and one of those ways can be frustrating initially, but is well worth the effort. Speaking of the characters, Millennium 4 has the largest cast of playable characters you'll find in any similar RPG, and their banter is absolutely hilarious in places. The game has the beautiful scenery and soundtrack we've come to expect in the series, and does a fantastic job of setting the stage for the final showdown yet to come.… Expand
