Chapters 1-4 were absolutely fantastic; loved every minute.
Then the second half. Holy s***. How could they even think this was okay? I remember reading sometime earlier in the year that the second half of the game was terrible, but it slipped my mind when I ordered it a few weeks ago. The idea for the plot during part 2 was OK, but it's one of those things that would be better suited for a movie than forcing you to redo the same thing 5 times. Really SE?
I saw there's a sequel in the works and I really hope they don't try to pull this nonsense again. The gameplay is great but there's no way I will replay this game anytime soon, if at all.
"half" is stupidly inaccurate and all the repetition can be done in like 2 hours...
Is it repetitive? yes Is it perfect? no Do people super exaggerate and pretend like it makes the game horrible? yes Is gameplay more important than story: always.
those supper-duper fun-fun group boss fights tho.... they so fun.... (dat sarcasm tho >_>)
I honestly found those group boss fights to be super-duper fun-fun though. It was nice to get some challenge considering the game was pretty easy.
This. I actually got squad wiped a few times.
Considering how every boss in chapter 5 is a complete joke compared to how much harder they are initially, it's so easy over level them and just roll them. I only had one party member die in a boss fight and it was Ringabel getting owned by Bone Crush because I wasn't healing the laughable 600 damage Lord DeRosso was doing to him with physical attacks before he uses the ability. Otherwise every boss has been a joke and Growth Egg is so OP it makes the game trivial.
