The game looks kind of neat from the...thirty seconds of footage I watched and the pictures I've looked at. And there's loads of hype about it. My biggest issue with the SRPG genre is that I'm just not very good at it. Are the Fire Emblem games really hard? And are they worth all the hype that typically accompanies them?

My prediction: TC will think it's pretty awesome.

I think it's looking to have a lot of things that will appeal to someone who doesn't really like, say, Disgaea or FFT. Good graphics with animated battles and fairly easy-to-understand mechanics--the rock/paper/scissors-esque combat... Lots of character dialogue and cutscenes...

I really like Shining Force, so maybe thats why I liked this game as they are somewhat similar.

Well that was certainly interesting. It's not as boring as other SRPGs that I've tried out in the past, and the graphics were really pretty, with some awesome 3D effects. That said, is the entire game just grid-based battles with cutscenes in between? Does the game let you walk around, explore, etc? Seems like I might get tired of just fighting, then watching cutscenes, then fighting, and so on. I didn't really finish the demo (battery was low, plugged it in) so I can't comment on anything that happened after the very beginning of chapter 1.
