  1. An awesome strategy RPG designed for lovers of the genre. [JPN Import]
  2. It features a deep storyline with a few memorable characters set amidst a lengthy and challenging adventure. Still, the game is hampered by an inconsistent AI, and difficulty that can, at times, render the game more frustrating than fun.
  3. The game combines colorful artwork, character animations, adult themed language, and a very mature storyline that gives the game a nice overall feel that fans of the genre will appreciate.
  4. It's not particularly innovative, but it does allow for some great, challenging strategy. [May 2005, p.116]
  5. One of the biggest flaws with the game is the character voice-acting. For the most part, the characters seem to lack enthusiasm and come off sounding horrible.
  6. Just a basic run-of-the-mill tactical RPG that, though certainly an excellent game, fails to blow you away like it should - instead it chugs along at a steady pace and fails to progress much, or offer anything that the genre has already featured for years.

    It's just too easy. That added onto the obstacle glitch in this game really kills the thrill of strategy, simply because there is none.

    A solid SRPG for funs. A good SRPG doesn't need to keep changing its elements. hundreds of years passed a poker deck still has 54 cards. A solid SRPG for funs.

I really tried to play this but everytime I sat down with I ended up falling asleep. I'm usually a big fan of tactical/strategy games, but this was far to slow paced.

    It is clear this type of game is an acquired taste, and I'm sure it has its fans (good for them,) but this game isn't for me
