  1. 80
    The graphics are clean and bright, but clearly representative of a first generation game, and the music, aside from a few levels, is uninspired.
  2. 72
    The story, voice acting, character development, translation, combat system and plot progression are very good, nothing more.
  3. The typical fashion model hangs out on the French Riviera and wears a slinky black dress with a fancy designer name on it. The typical RPGer eats a lot of french fries and wears a size XXL black T-shirt with a crewmember of the USS Enterprise on it. These similarities were not lost on From Software.
  4. With annoying sound and bothersome gameplay Evergrace is a title that you don't need to worry about missing.
  5. Just shy of average - there's nothing particularly bad here, but what little good it has is purely incidental and generally ignorable.
  6. Lacking in gameplay and visual splendor, Evergrace doesn't do enough to provide a quality next-generation RPG experience.
  7. If the monsters don't get you, the needless micromanagement will.
  8. While the PS2 seems to have helped improve the visuals ten fold, From Software wasn't able to work out the gameplay kinks to round everything out.
  9. Unfortunately the Dress-up system isn’t enough to save Evergrace from being very average. The horribly bland visuals, limited exploration and short life span (around 5 hours per character) drag down what could have been a rewarding and unique adventure.
  10. I like the art in Evergrace. Everything else is crap.
  11. It's just the mediocrity of everything - the story, voice acting, character development, plot progression, translation, combat system - that make it an average gaming experience.
  12. There isn't a tree, mountain, character, location or special effect in this game that has any degree of personality or liveliness within its existence, making the whole engine seem like an assembly-line, cookie-cutter, by-the-numbers effort on the part of From Software.

    A pretty solid game with Zelda-esque gameplay. The story is pretty interesting and it's pretty fun but of course your better off actually playing Zelda. Full Review »
