Not bad, but wasn't very exciting
3 September 2016 | by aero-windwalkerSee all my reviews

My screen's resolution is too high. After I lower the resolution the text became readable. Perhaps the developer wasn't quite prepared for highres screens. Or perhaps I should have known better.

The first half of the game is too slow, and largely irrelevant to the main story telling. We really want to know Juno's plan and yes we do want to see the character development but it should be more exciting.

Main story didn't move forward fast enough. If feels like the story just got started at the end. I wasn't expect the ending, more like in the middle of the game when the ending came. I was like what really...

Choices feel somewhat irrelevant to the character development and plot line. This is a common issue for RPG but with a slow plot line it feels more of an issue.

Game is very difficult but doesn't feel rewarding. This game got difficult 4 hours into the game, but it was when the fights are most boring and less relevant to the main plot line. I had to keep reloading because a few mistakes I made but those aren't even important fights. It got easier once you knew which characters you are going to use. Then when the story got exciting the battles became a bit too easy to overcome. The final battle is difficult but you can lose and have the same ending making it silly to spend time winning it. I was like why did I even bother...

Finally, just disappointed because this is not a soup opera and each of the installment should have a conclusion instead of trying to convince you to buy the next game. I can easily imagine me playing the third game without knowing anything in the second game and be fine with it. The whole game felt like a DLC for the first saga.
