People that like it don't suck at it and complain on message boards. The game isn't as hard as what the media made it out to be. Gamers these days aren't used to having to figure out things on their own and DS has an oldschool difficulty that is only brutal until you memorize basic concepts like trap locations, enemy spawns, attack patterns, etc.
This is NESchool grade difficulty. Just like classic games like Ninja Gaiden you are rewarded by using memorization skills. --- For a good time head over to the 3DS board.
I'm wondering the same thing. Sure, I liked the game, but the hype is just ridiculous.
I started the game expecting to see the hardest game ever and great gameplay. The gameplay is great and the atmosphere is awesome, but hard? Sure, for the first hours, but then it's like any other game. No, I didn't pick Royal, I picked just Knight. --- BROCCOLI COCONUT HOT DOG
yeah it was easy its called keep you shield up and wait for an enemy to attack then counter attack while hes recovering.. or roll then attack... its obvious youll get killed trying to start off the attack or trying to hack and slash like is dynasty warriors or zelda.. play and fight with patience and youll see how easy it indeed is..
but yeah i dont understand the following either.. while i platinumed the game and do like it I wouldnt call it a must buy, game or the year or score it higher than 7/10
and the people that do Im sure are only doing it because of the novelties in the game (i.e reading and leaving messages, getting healed if your messages are rated, being able to invade others games, being able to see other players white phantoms while they play and seeing bloodstains to give you hints at how someone died to warn you... thats why... because it surely inst because of the "breathtaking graphics" "exciting gameplay" and "stellar storyline" because if so then lololololol --- My first time and day in Jueno and the first 6 hours of it is spent staring at a chocobo's butt.
