A good finale
27 December 2002 | by (Paducah, KY) – See all my reviews

Well, after reading all the press and message boards, I was almost afraid to play this game. But, I went ahead, bought a copy and went for it. After getting used to the controls and learning the spell system, I found a game actually ahead of its time.

Tons of PS2 RPG's now copy this style of gameplay. Also the famed Elder Scrolls III goes the route U9 does.

The story is in depth. Almost every NPC walking the streets has something to add to the game. The landscapes are lavish and easy to look at.

So I recommend this for everyone? NO! Fans of the series and hardcore RPGers will love this. Just game fans, well I'm not saying you wont like it, it's just a very different kind od gaming experience than what your used to on the consoles!!!

All in all it is a good bow out for the series, and somehow I hope they bring the avatar back!
