Summary

Great Game, one of the best

The Good

Many spells, the magic experience, and attack experience scale, it goes up in level as you use it more. The fact you do not have to buy weapons again and again, you forge them, and you cast magic on your weapon when necessary. A lot of imagination went into this game.

The Bad

Starts off a bit boring, you are in the same area for the first 20% of the game (Pandora realm). "The BIG BUG" as some people describe it is, once you get hit, if the monster keeps attacking, you cant hit him back, and you die. Some monsters/bosses repeated, just in a different element (ie. Fire Gigas, Frost Gigas, Thunder Gigas).

The Bottom Line

A must play for any RPG Fan, especially if you are into the action games as well as RPGs.
