Not to be missed
28 December 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

If there's anything I hate more it is when people always tell me that the greatest JRPGs are one of those overrated franchises (I won't say which ones), when in fact they've never really played a lost gem like this before. When it comes to the amount of things to do in this game the only word to describe it is, "endless".

The game is played in real-time combat, much like hack and slash, where you can battle yourself through randomly generated dungeons and proceed to the next floors by defeating enemies. Whenever you defeat enemies you will earn ABS (absorption points), which enables you to level up your weapons, instead of your characters.

You also have a city-building element to the game, where you will be able to build towns in order to restore the past to its former glory by meeting the requirement goals for each objectives.

I would say that I have spent over 100+ hours into this game and I'm still playing it to this day.

If there's anything you should play in this genre it's definitely this, because this game has one of the best, if not the best, replay value in any games of this genre I have ever played. So if you haven't played this game yet, please do, and please tell Level-5 to make a sequel of it already.
