I played the demo today I was both impressed and disappointed. Nice atmosphere and visuals and characters and dialog choices and so on. and flying? cool. And great character customization, both in appearance and combat specializations. However the combat itself was very underwhelming. turn-based in the classic JRPG style is a bit slow for my liking. Also I read a couple of GFAQs reviews a few minutes ago and apparently the combat doesn't get any more difficult. I thought it was just easy because it was the first few encounters, but apparently not. That combination is a more or less game-breaking flaw for me, which is very disappointing because I really liked the rest of what I saw.
I haven't played for a while but I played all the way through the game, and I'm checking back to see if any info gets posted about another game.
I agree the combat is kinda lame, but the adventuring makes up for it. Flying adds a whole other level of exploration, it's a good game. Worth it if you ask me. --- This is gonna sound weird, but for a second, I think you took on the shape of a unicorn PSN:drpokerface
