  1. The spoken dialog is at times so badly acted, and the story so complex, that in the end you simply stop caring about the uninteresting characters under your control.
  2. Inevitably, you have to compare this to "Final Fantasy VIII." While Septerra Core has a reasonable story behind it, it just doesn't match up in any other way. So, if you only want to buy one RPG then "FFVIII" has to be the number one choice. Sadly, Septerra Core is rather disappointing.

Spell effects and battle system are very cool, as well as enemy models, artwork, and the whole concept and epic focus of the game. A walkthrough might be necessary to not get frustrated trying to figure out when and where to pick up certain items, and what to do with them, but besides that i had an amazing experience with this game. Great dialogue and cutscenes too! Full Review »

    Great game, you cannot expect Mass Effect series in the good old days.

    A somewhat linear RPG that involves less amount of exploration and more amount of turn-based combat. A variety of creatures and good boss-fights.
