What? A PS2 Msg from Neonoone, with no remarks against the PS2??? What is going on here?

Well, I've heard that is too short, too much FMV and not enough gameplay and the lastability is shocking. But, the graphics and the character designs are soo good (I'm a big fan of FF7 and FF8 character designs, which were done by the same guy) that I think I am willing to let this one into my PS2 collection (currently consisting of Quake 3 - there have just been too many awesome DC games recently!!!)

David - have you tried out the 4-player mode? Just thinking that the game would have to zoom out a fair way for 4-players to be on-screen at once.

Well, the game may be 99% eye-candy, 1% gameplay, but at least it's something to show the non-believers who think that the ps2 graphics aren't up to par.

I didn't actually try the 4-player mode myself although I have some video footage.. I did play 2-players.. but the camera angles are so annoying through the game. Tis game would be the biggest disappointment to date on the system.

Whoah! that's something you don't just take with a grain of salt there... It must be bad if a vg-site host thinks this badly of the game. Well, I still wouldn't mind playing it for the eye candy though ;)

I'm not saying that the game is the worst on the system.. just that compared to the amount of hype and promise that it had that it falls way short of the mark.

I bought the game the other day. I found it for $60 second hand, so couldn't resist. Nothing that anybody can say can really prepare you for just how much FMV and how little playing time there is. I found that the best way to look at it was to think of it as an extremely good interactive Anime. Plus, you can pause ANY of the cut scenes (rendered or not), and skip them if you want.

The story is really good, and the graphics and sound are some of the best seen yet. Also, unlike most Animes, this one has a hell of a lot of humour in it, and it is genuinely hilarious (play through the diguise scene with Kou properly!)

It's not really worth $100, but if you can pick it up cheap, it's probably worth your while...if you're an Anime fan.
