if you like old fashioned jrpgs with nothing new added to the gameplay with dragonball z type of graphics its decent
I hated it
Bought it, never even threw in my xbox. Heard it was meh at best.
If you want a decent JRPG on xbox look at Lost Odyssey (Made by mistwalker who made Blue Dragon) or Star Ocean 4:The Last Hope (Made by Square Enix)
I played lost odyssey i think i got to put in disc 3 went to bed and never played it again.
im in the middle of disc 2 for lost odyssey. game is decent, nothing groundbreaking.
when playing rpg's stick to western models
Generic JRPG from what I hear, not worth it. There are better jRPGs.
I liked it. But NCAA 10 eats up my time. ><
the demo made me stay away from it
Tales of Vesperia > Lost Odyssey > Blue Dragon
For me at least
^ Any thoughts on the new Star Ocean? Another XBOX jRPG I've been interested in & may get when it comes out for PS3.
It's good, classic star ocean battle system. If you played any of the others it's exactly the same.
However the story is a little meh and not enough worlds to explore ftl.
Star Ocean has always been about outstanding gameplay
Nothing special, Fun as usual, Dont think I ever finished it
Maybe if your a faggot frat boy that can't read or follow complex battle systems.
I liked it. I like it for the reasons everyone else doesn't.
I don't need anything groundbreaking in my rpg's, I like the battle system of classic snes rpg's and generally don't think it should've ever changed from that for a standard rpg.
Well, I mean that as far as new ideas and combat systems and b.s. like that. Story still needs to be there, and in a way that isn't boring and obtrusive.
So far it seems pretty good i like how the monsters can fight themselves or you can fight all of them at once. I just dont understand the rank system or skills yet.
The rank system is how your shadows level up, every 10 levels you get a new shadow class you can appoint them to. Their rank is independant of your character's level too. You get more skills as you reach higher rank levels.
You can switch around the shadows' jobs like you would switch job classes in FFT or FF5. They are also affected the same way, like, if you set a shadow to be a mage you'd want them to be in the back row, sword master in front row, etc.
and I'm the faggot, mmkay
and lol at complex
attack target 1 or 2, OR DO I USE THE POTION?
That's as complex as I want it to be. Attack, Item, Special Skill, Magic. Pick one and let'er fly.
Any other steps added to the process only make it worse, imho. Chrono Cross had a unique way of making it funner by giving you the option of choosing the intensity of your attack until your attack meter thing is empty, but it had a lot of other elements that just made it too complex in and out of battle. While it's not really that bad and is still fundamentally simple, it could've been made less complicated.
How come i can have my skill selected as white magic hit "A" and then i goto a screen where it asks me if i want to add magic sword or another skills. There is 4 slots availabe at this screen. Also i just got to the first town and i noticed a treasure chest that has a blue shield around it then in the next screen i deafted this frog looking thing and it was hiding a green shielded treasure. I assume i have to kill all the frogs on the screen to unlock this chest?
Hmm, it's been a while since I played, I played when it first came out.
I think those are the four slots you can choose what skills to have available during battle.
The blue and green barrier things can't be opened until much later in the game.
I think you'll come to a city guarded by a green barrier or something soon all you have to do is finish the chapter or w/e its called and it'll open up.
checkout gamefaqs.com for walkthroughs and stuff. I always turn there when I get stuck
Makes cents thanks for the info brosef. This game is pretty good nothing to complex
