    Back in stock now

    I bought this for the same price a couple of weeks ago, and am utterly hooked.

    I took a chance on it for £20 as I'd heard good things, but was always really put off by the slightly juvenile / kawaii art style. But having played 20 odd hours now, I'll readily admit I was really wrong about it.

    At about 10 hours in I hit that point I so often get to with JRPGs where was unsure of how it was going to pan out. I was really enjoying it, but hit the first major boss, and it took me 7 or 8 attempts to beat him. I'd basically fought every enemy up to that point, and found it nicely balanced so far (I was actually able to beat the boss, so that's something) but had a few concerns the difficulty curve might start climbing to the point where it's requiring me to grind for grinding's sake. That's normally the point where I quit a JRPG. Fortunately, it turns out I just hadn't got my head around all of its mechanics at that point, and once I had, it got easier.

    Behind its seemingly simple looks are a surprisingly deep and complex battle system, which is quite unique, and which make it quite involved and strategic. Like if you block, you gain an additional turn, and you can borrow up to 3 turns in the future. So you can actually hit an enemy 4 times, and end up on -3 turns. That's great if you finish the enemy off with those 4 turns, but if you don't, then your character is left defenceless for 3 turns, or at very least, at the mercy of other party members to heal them. It's a great system, but took a while to get my head around how to use it in boss battles.

    It's also very job based. So every character has a primary and secondary class, which effect their stats, but you only ever level up the primary. So to get strong rounded characters, you need to rotate the roles they play once in a while. That adds tons of depth to it, but it takes some mental adjustment, and I don't think I'm 100% there, even after 20 hours.

    Couple the above with the fact that you can use permanent buffs from job classes you aren't using any more, and you've got a huge amount of scope for mixing and matching. So you might get to a certain level as a vanguard, and get a buff which makes you hit harder, but then switch to a black mage + monk, but still use the vanguard's buff while no longer a vanguard. Oh, and any character can be any class or combination of classes. The scope for setting up your party is ridiculously varied. It doesn't really overwhelm for those not into that stuff, but I can see why people who are really driven by that really love it.

    Long and short, if you're into old school JRPGs, give this a go! 🔥

    Note: I've not played the first game, but understand that's a totally separate story, so not at all a requirement. (edited)

    I bought this and it arrived today…only it didn’t. I got 10 vials of children’s nail glue in the package instead. Amazon have refunded but pretty annoying as it’s now up in price again.

    Drops to this price regularly but definitely worth a punt if you want a very good old school JRPG over the Christmas holidays

    I see it's out of stock again now, but was back in stock at £19.99 again yesterday, so it looks like when they refresh the stock, it will probably be at this price. For anyone who missed out, I'd suggest hitting the Amazon URL a few times a day.
