hi all. i am writing this review mainly because Legend of Heroes is a GREAT game and it is WAYYYY underrated by IGN and other sources. at first i was doubtful. IGN gave it a 5.5 so i didnt know if i should buy it or not. after reading somewhere that it was good for RPG and FF fans, i decided to pick it up. here is the breakdown:
excellent level design, but the sprites look rather "big-headded" otherwise this game is awsome graphically, from the 3-d trees to the flowing water. this is one of the best aspects of the game.
The nub makes it easier to control the characters, but it can still get a little hard. i think it would be better if the sensitivity was lowered a bit. still, it is pretty nics.
Not the best, but still good. i've alwasy loved those "old" sounding songs. it make the game feel more... medieval.
the concept is AwSoMe. if you like FF7 or Fire Emblem, this game is a must-buy. just like ff7, you choose you character, choose who to attack and there you go. you killed him. one thing that is different though, there is no bar that needs to fill up in order for you next turn like in ff7. that was the only thing stopping the concpet from getting a 10/10. the story is very good, and i couldnt stop playing at one point!
Lasting Appeal: 8/10
very long game. 15-20 depending how good you are. it took me eternity. even though there is no multiplayer, a still want to play it again.
i think game is very good, but a sequel would be nice. it usually does not get the credit it deserves, and it definitely is a must buy for all rpg/ff lovers. if you have too much money, and dont know waht game to get, try atleast renting this game, and you'll see what i mean.
