[QUOTE] Let me guess...you're more of a Persona fan are you? [/QUOTE] Nope. Iggy can't stand Persona. Anyway, I second everything he says about Strange Journey and add that the soundtrack is really amazing. Great battle themes...really atmospheric. I'm sad that the writing is so mediocre though...or rather, just needlessly talky. They could tell the same story in 1/3 as many words. As for [b]RoF/EoE[/b] I LOVE it! It's worth buying for the soundtrack alone. I think I'm on battle theme number 22 and EVERY ONE OF THEM IS GOOD. It's hard to get more than one decent battle theme out of a game these days, but it seems like this one has an endless number of them. The soundtrack is also very high quality. Lots of orchestrated pieces. Another plus is that the game is hilarious. When your power gauge runs out, your team becomes a bunch of cowards. The music changes, they shake with fear, they look away when they shoot, they roll their grenades miserably on the ground and they run in terror. The battle dialogues are also extremely numerous and frequently funny. Wakamoto is always good, but Chiba Shigeru totally steals the show in this one. It isn't too much of a spoiler, so check out this scene. It'll blow your mind: [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XGX3o0N9MY&feature=related]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XGX3o0N9MY&feature=related[/URL] If that doesn't inspire you to get the game, then it's not the game for you. Of course, the battle system is amazing...and totally ingenious. What I love about Tri-Ace's battle systems is that they go beyond anything you could possibly ask for...they come up with ideas that you couldn't even dream. I can't even compare this system to anything...hell, I can't even compare the GAME to anything. I'm still marveling at the wealth of different battle animations, and I'm 30 hours in. Also, the setting is really neat. On the downside... 1) This game is specially made for me. It may not appeal to anyone else in the same way. 2) I'm not done with it yet. My opinion may sour if the plot gets unintentionally stupid instead of delightfully stupid with an interesting backstory. 3) A lot of people seem to say the graphics suck. It doesn't have a really clean high-res look, but the backgrounds and battle animations are amazing...it just takes a little getting used to. 4)The gun customization can become overly complicated. It starts out like a nice little puzzle, though. 5) It will tell you that the enemy is targeting one of your party members, then it will change at the last second and shoot someone else. This is a minor quibble, but it drives me crazy. I hate it when games lie to you. Just don't tell me!
