it seems like they had some good ideas in the combat system but there are so many things badly executed
the graphics are barely passable, the lighting is very bad, the animations are not interesting, the art style is dull. overall it feels like playing a PS2 game in a higher resolution, which wouldn't be bad if it were a good game...
I just finished Dragon Quest VIII on the PS2 and the combat there is simplistic but the enemies have interesting design & good animations, the story is actually decent, you can explore around a bit, the boss battles are fun, etc..
I'll have to give this a try later again to get a second impression. On first impression it's not fun despite it not having the performance issues w/ a good PC.
