    The graphics are clean and bright, but clearly representative of a first generation game, and the music, aside from a few levels, is uninspired.

    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. If the monsters don't get you, the needless micromanagement will.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
