Kawazu's Legacy: • It's cute. • The visual style is heavily inspired by Bravely (ex. how the zoom works in villages), but the recent Bravely Second demo is leagues ahead in terms of programming and art direction. • The story is paper-thin but that's not a big problem. It seems you are exected to replay the game with each character. • The nods to old-school RPGs are pretty cool. For instance, in the dancer's story, there is a funny take on the absurd way a character's sprite could completely change right in front of you as they either changed stance, transformed ordisguised themselves. Those jokes will be lost on younger players, methinks. • I like the frog less than I expected. • Nice "SaGa-like" system with how HP is handled. Damage impacts HP as usual, but if a character dies in battle and keeps getting hit, their maximum HP is affected (I don't know if the character is dead forever when you reach Max HP = 0, but I guess so?). You can regain your "real" max HP at the inn, but that requires going back to the village. It's a nice tradeoff. I wonder if they shold have been meaner and make it harder to regain your max HP. • Filling the map was initially fun, but it quickly became super repetitive. The problem is not enough interesting things happen in the maps. Not enough interactions with the background, from my view. • As promised by a game for SaGa fans, the heavy sword macho guy can take the role of the group's healer and other shenanigans. They actually encourage switching formations. • [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mNSyjifSpI]The music is really nice.[/URL] • And finally, the big dark point for me so far: battles are tedious. Elementary-based, a little bit in the style of Chrono Cross, they lack the punch and speed that made Bravely Default so addictive. At least you can (and are more or less encouraged to) skip battles in the typical Romancing SaGa way. okay/10 I might have been more positive, had I not been swayed by the Bravely Second demo at TGS. I think true SaGa fans like Iggy will be more positive. It's definitely a better game in my book than those two DS remakes.
