Seriously, the game has the most awkwardly written script I've ever witnessed. It's like talking to your friend or something. Every conversation feels like a joke. Sometimes I think they were parodying themselves. The only time it isn't funny is when something Really serious happens (like when someone dies or a city gets destroyed).
Do you agree? What's the funniest JRPG you've played on PS3? (I'm talking funny all throughout. Not just one tiny part.)
If you're willing to try a WRPG you should check ou tthe Mass Effect series. It's writing is also a huge joke. Very funny game, but the gameplay is pretty weak.
I would say there's probably funnier dialogue in Dragon Age Origins sooner than Mass Effect. Of course South Park The Stick of Truth will change all that. And yes Hyperdimension Neptunia has comedy but its of the more standard cliche Moe style though they did ham it up a bit for the localization.
And the game with the most awkward dialogue hands down has got to be Deadly Premonition. A psychological analytic monologue about Tom & Jerry cartoons?

Was it fun though? I read the back of the game and the description makes the gameplay seem fun.
The battle gameplay is a tiny notch above being ordinary, but it's still fun enough to play. Not too simple. Not too complex. It has it's own identity. "Speed Tactics" lives up to its name.
I smiled when I saw a CGI cutscene again. It was awesome. Maybe this is the reason why I play a lot of "2007" PS3 games. It's because of the confidence of Japanese developers to put expensive CGI cutscenes in their games.
I'm typing "SPOILERS" in this post just for insurance: (This was shown near the beginning of the game; After the tutorial.)
*You could really feel the impact of the scene when she transformed into that robot thing, and the music started playing. Frozen innards splattering through.... Ewwww....
I don' understand how people can claim to be jrpg fans and then say this is a good game. This game along with other offenders like last remnant, infinite undiscovery and more are atrocious jrpgs let alone games. Real fans of the genre know this.
