One of the most addicting JRPGs
10 February 2018 | by Erico_the_GreatSee all my reviews

There's nothing I hate more when people always tell me that the greatest JRPGs are one of those overrated franchises (I won't say which ones) when in fact they've never really played a lost gem like this before. When it comes down to the amount of things you can do in this game, the only word to describe it is, "endless".

It's played in real-time combat, much like hack and slash, where you can battle yourself through randomly generated dungeons and proceed to the next floors. Whenever you defeat enemies you will earn ABS (absorption points), which enables you to level up your weapons instead of your characters.

You also have a city-building aspect to the game, where you will be able to rebuild towns in order to restore the past to its former glory by meeting certain requirement goals for each objective.

I would say that I have spent over 100+ hours into this game and I'm still playing it to this day.

If there are any games you want to play in the JRPG genre you should definitely play this game, it has one of the best, if not the best, replay value in any games that I have ever played. So if you haven't played this game already, please do, and please tell Level-5 to make a sequel to it.
