The NZA Posted May 17, 2010 Share Posted May 17, 2010 i know, even the cover doesnt look overly-compelling. if it wasn't for Maldron and Kotaku's rather praising review id've likely passed it by, as well. i mean, ive seen almost no other western reviews of the game (Joystiq utterly failed at this, as is their MO), and there's more talk of its penchant for backtracking and quirkiness (hermaphrodite swordswoman, talking grimoire, etc) and the like. I'm just over an hour in and finished only the first story-based quest, but i'm already intrigued: i was told this game looked last-gen and such, but really, the choice of art style is really nice; kinda has this soft, Ico/SOTC-esque Ueda vibe. Gameplay's not overly difficult, kinda reminiscent of Sword of the Berserk. even those not inclined to try it are praising its soundtrack as one of the best game OST's this year. more to come as i get further, just wanted to pass on Mal's half-recommendation. id say newt might dig the sarcastic exchanges, but again, way too early to say much yet. god knows idve waited till i tied up Lost Odyssey's 4th disc if the @#$%ing game wasnt oddly asking for disc 2 first. im on disc 4, let's just play that one, dammit! where was i going with this? oh yeah: did anyone play Drakengard? was that any good?
