No. I actually played the 1st couple of games in the series. I like the way the battles play out and the character customization. But they just haven't grabbed me.
I started playing SMT Strange Journey and finally realized why. The games are similar in some ways, but what kept me coming back to Strange Journey was the story.
I'm not really sure why EO has made the decision to have only bare bones stories in their games. How about a good story AND a good battle system?
I hear a lot about using your imagination to fill in the story in an EO game. Well frankly I don't need a video game to imagine a cool story. I could just read a book or imagine something myself. A big part of the experience for me in a good RPG is a decent story, I feel it's part of what I am paying for.
Anyway those are my reasons for not getting the game, hope the rest of you who do enjoy it. I don't hate the games, but that one flaw keeps me from getting into them.
