I was never really impressed by EO

Games I think that look and play better that are similar:


Sol Trigger (PSP)
Tales of the Final Primise (PSP)
Master of the Monster's Lair (DS)
Wizardry: Forsaken Land (PS2)
Shin Megami Tensei IV
Dragon Quest VII

I could never really get into this series. You have to use a guide to get specific builds for characters in order to get through the game. If you don't have any idea of what you're doing with a build in the game then the game becomes ten times harder. Which is saying a lot because the games are immensely difficult even when using a guide. It's just poor game design honestly. You NEVER should have to use a guide to get past a mandatory part of a game.


Well, technically you don't NEED to use a guide, as there's this little thing called Trial and Error. I'm in no way advocating this time of gameplay style as I myself dislike wasting time needlessly trying to figure out optimal builds, but how else do you think people are even able to come up with the optimal builds in the first place?


I liked doing trial and error in for example FF1, but imo all this series has been doing is making up random skills such that only the skill choosing part is becoming more complex. I'm hoping the easy mode or the rebirth system lambchips mentioned will be enough to keep me interested, but I prefer being able to reset my builds to adapt tactics.

Yeah, there is. TC I made a similar topic on the EO board the other day saying I was turned off by certain elements of the game and was relentlessly attacked by the users on that board. Judging by the gameplay and responses I have read on this and other boards about this game, I'd say this is a good game for easily annoyed autistic people.

You would think people could have different game opinions >_>

You can have different opinions, but bumping a thread to keep making your point noticed is just screaming for attention. You already got all the answers you needed, hence there was really no point in bumping this.
