Cheers oldschool. I'll probably get this when I've got time for a long RPG, I declined buying Radiant Historia last month for the same reasons Sad

I personally played Radiant Historia and really liked it, but like many good games, i got busy and went on to something else.

Sounds just like me! I don't mind that when it comes to other genres (like puzzle games), but for some reason , but for some reason I don't like not seeing RPGs through. Maybe it's because of the overarching story.

Downloaded this the other day, started it properly tonight, and first impressions are good! Thus far it isn't much like other JRPGs I've played (it's my first SMT game). Juggling it with Smash Bros, Kid Icarus and Tomodachi will prove to be a challenge though.

Actually bought this with a 10 eShop voucher I won, but still not got around to playing but it's not going anywhere.

I forgot to post about this. I played through it earlier this year, and really enjoyed it. The pacing is a bit iffy in the first six hours, but it's eventually worth it -- they set the scene for the rest of the plot.

It's definitely a landmark 3DS RPG, really well made and well designed. Though some of the boss battles were a bit cheaty, in ways that the AI behaves knowing what you have picked in advance. It prevents you from using every possible strategy in the book (like setting up a reflection wall), but on the other hand it forces you to pick new strategies depending on bosses.

I couldn't recommend this highly enough, the only knock I'd have against it is it's a bit oppressive at times. I'm really happy I managed to get on the "neutral" path without using a guide.

Plus, assuming Europe is the same, it is really cheap on the eShop again.

I really want to like this game but the start is just SO harsh. Maybe I'll try again some time, though JRPGs that I want to try are never a rarity in my house.

The start is pretty brutal and, as fronk says, paced pretty badly - but it does hit its stride. Although it's one of those games I'll get hooked on for about a week at a time and then lose interest in for a little while.

This was the game I wanted in Nintendo's big eShop sale, and I've played through to the first save opportunity. Having known nothing about the game, I'm intrigued by the set up. It remains to be seen how much I'll play it in the coming weeks, though, with Robobobobobot landing today. Sad
