    I'm a huge fan of the sRPG genre, and this game is among the worst I've ever played. How do you mess up the camera in a static-view turn-based game? The AI is a joke, the characters are dull, and the story is poor at best. Even the battles - an sRPG's bread and butter - are lifeless. Avoid this junk at all costs.

    This is a great game, Sure it has about no plot and the "war" waging around you is just an overworld map with badly animated swords clashing! But hey, the gameplay is solid and fun as hell. I've beaten the game once and I'm still having a hellava hard time actually beating it agian because I have a completely new party from the one i chose last time because thiers so manyThis is a great game, Sure it has about no plot and the "war" waging around you is just an overworld map with badly animated swords clashing! But hey, the gameplay is solid and fun as hell. I've beaten the game once and I'm still having a hellava hard time actually beating it agian because I have a completely new party from the one i chose last time because thiers so many characters to play (40+). While most of them are the same type just with a slight differnce (one sorcerress would push the oppenent away, another towards, another to the ground) it still makes the game hard when you have 3 mages and your fighting nothing but warriors! Pure awsome game. Expand

    This is a quirky little game with pretty bad graphics, almost no story, horrible voice acting and a sloppy main interface. However, the part of the game that matters - the combat - is challenging and fun.

However, the part of the game that matters - the combat - is challenging and fun. There are TONS of characters, each with different strengths and weaknesses (although I think your original 6 or so remain the strongest throughout the game, so there is little need to use others). There are several different maps, each with different facets and challenges. Enemies also develop along with you, getting stronger and more complex. This is a competent SRPG, but don't get your hopes too high - this is no Final Fantasy Tactics. Expand

  1. Spectral Force 3 is a throwback to older days from the genre, but feels a bit too antiquated and uninteresting to be recommendable.

    For all of Atlus' hype about the game's "full HD support," SF3 looks no better than your average PS2 title.
  3. Pretty or not, no JRPG on the 360 has the edge on Spectral Force 3 in terms of gameplay. In other words, it has a great personality.
