A true pearl, and the best game here on RMN

I found out his game just by coincidence, and wasn't really expecting much since its rated 3.5

Yet, as soon as the story started I saw that at least the storyline seemed interesting, and the sound track used was indeed very nice.

scenarios are very simple yet they are more than enough for the constant challenges, the number of things you can do is awesome. The game makes you be in constant alert if you want to complete everything like capturing all the monsters and scan everything.

The characters are really great, first of all their backgrounds, and then their system which has pieces and bits from both treasure of the rudras and final fantasy. The menu is final fantasy based and you can't never go wrong with that.

When you get in control of Lee and Goldo the number of things you can do drastically improves, and now besides having to scan and capture almost everything, you must also be on the lookout for recepies, steal stuff from enemies and learn enemy skills...this game really fills up your head and in a good way.

There are some errors though, like for example in battle when you use a skill, and try to use it again the next turn you will notice that the skill selected is always the one next to the one you used before, this is really anoying.

Another issue are the boundaries, in most caverns you can walk through walls and this doesn't seem very good...

Something that need improvement is the font, mostly when you enter a new area, the font on the area name gets really blurred, but issues on fonts seem to be a general issue in all games...

I like the amount of stuff you can do and it's probaby the best thing about the game, the common nostalgia I get from many scenes where music from final fantasy 7 and others is used also make sthis game a unique experience, and you might want to expand a bit on those to make those scenes even better.

I find it a bit awkward that Lee can also use the services of the university guy, since the deal was only with the protagonist...

Something I would like you added to the game would be some sort of review at the end of scenarios with information for example on the number of unique monsters still present in area and coupons you might have missed since these are really important.

Also is there something like a moster list in the game? It seems this was planned but was not done yet, you might include the items you can steal from them.

The item that tells you your scout points must be broken, to get to level 3 I had to get more than double the points it required, and when I used it after getting level 3 it froze my game. Also you should change it so it starts at level zero, because for example as it stands you fight level 1 hidden mosters with scout level 2.

I can't simply understand some of the reviews this game got...and I intended to give it a 4.5 since it still has some issues that should be solved, but for the sheer potencial it shows and to try to make it more visible to players out there I'm gonna give it a five.

Hope you like my review. It's the first one I make, and only decided to do it because I thought it was not fair for such a game to have such low rating also sorry for my english but I'm not an english native speaker. I really look forward for a final version of the game :)

3.5 is not a bad rating. As a matter of fact, most popular/decent games around here are rated 3.5, because there are always people who will downrate. 2-2.5 is considered average these days.

Agnito, until you've played every game on RMN, go fuck yourself.

This is a direct response to the review TITLE, by the way.

I took it back because I felt bad, but for future reference a sentence like "the best game on RMN" usually means "better than every other game on RMN" which you couldn't say until you'd played every other game on RMN.

I agree with this review and particularly the fact that there's 99% chance that it IS the best game to play today on rmn. How to say it : it comes off as an evidence, when I read that title, I thought : "yes, definitely", though I have not played, of course!, every game on rmn. Go figure..

Just saying, we should all understand that there is a difference between Fact and Opinion. Words like the "best" and "worst" are so relative that they can be applied to anything because the "best" thing to any person in one category could very easily be the worst in that category in my opinion.

Remember Fact V. Opinion
