Decent, but not great
21 January 2001 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

It's a fun series, but after a strong beginning, it starts slowing down. Several episodes have very little point in the overall plot, and the Role Playing Game storyline just isn't complex enough to really fill 7 or 8 hours. Animation is decent, but occasionally they get cheap with it, especially when it comes to animating the big battles. Finally, the payoff at the ending just is not NEARLY as good as it should have been, especially considering how long the journey was. Not that I object to the ending, just that it seems like it could (and should) have built up to something much bigger. Probably worth renting or borrowing off a friend, but not worth buying.
