[QUOTE] It is a very... interesting game. It has a member select system kind of similar to KOF2001 (yes, so Chaos Breaker is almost 10 years old), where you can chose between 1 to 3 team members for your game; you can select items instead of members, like a set of mana potions to regain power, an elixer to ressurect on a KO, and equipments that give various powers and abilities. [/QUOTE] Okay, my Japan region network ticket codes came through last night, so I bought Dark Awake. After a bit of buyer's regret (resolved when I played the game) and the first-ever time my PS3 hung up while loading a game (I even had to do a hard reset!), I played a bit of the game. And... it's good! Nobinobita is dead-on about it being Warhammer-esque-- one of my first opponents was... well, a cannon (or more accurately a few little guys operating a cannon), which I don't quite get-- maybe it's fun to play as. Combos are pretty straightforward and easy to pull off, and a few characters are juggling nightmares (and at least one has a juggle-heavy infinite). It's without question a little old-fashioned, but I don't think in a negative way-- after all, I still play 2002UM quite often, so it's doesn't seem that old to me. Graphics are good-- the characters animate really well, and the backgrounds are good but not great (they were at least trying though). The one area that I wish was better was the clash effects and specials. The 'energy' effect of the specials seems really muddy because there is a lot of (totally expected) pixelization combined with a pretty large area of effect. The end result is that it's hard to see what's actually happening at the point of impact. If anyone cares to hear it, I'll post some more after I play it a little more in-depth tonight. So yes, I think it was worth it to pick the game up. The whole process of buying it from the JP region store was not very tough, and the game was not particularly expensive. If you appreciate more obscure fighters, I'd recommend it.
