A Dizzying Array of Options …

The latest Not-So-Casual Commentary is up.

I did manage to figure out how to use TPs, and am a lot further in the game now than when it was originally written. But it’s still dizzying …

    Is the game really worth getting? How would you compare it to other JRPGs?

    Well, it came with a soundtrack that I liked, so that tends to make it up for me, but it is entertaining. If you like tactical RPG combat, you might like the combat (I’m a bit “meh” on it) and the writing is a bit off in places, where things aren’t quite done right. But it’s entertaining and there’s a lot of humour in the game, and even some serious parts. The music highlights the seriousness much better than the writing does, which is both good and bad.

    I guess the best way to put it is that if you can stand the fiddling around with all the options, and can put up with some awkward dialogue at times to get to the good parts of the story, and aren’t completely turned off by a lot of tactical combat, it’s certainly worth it. I expect to play the game again at some point (once I finish it [grin]), which is more than I can say for Catherine, which had a far better story.
