Great character designs, great battle system
This Japanese RPG is worth buying if you have some Japanese skill. What's more important than good looking and erotic character designs is the battle system. It requires skills to make a combo that does a massive damage. It's about power management and timing. You'll not get bored because it's not about pushing A and wait, ...[read more...]

I can see how the battle system has inspired the one from the Project X Zone games on 3DS. Try juggling enemies while aiming to hit at the last minute before they touch the ground to score critical hits. Battles are random encounters, and you will battle multiple enemies at a time while taking turns.
The dungeon maps are based on exploration and trying to open new paths and finding items, which is unusual, but welcome, for SRW games.
The music is what you would expect from the series. I had a big smile when Lamia Loveless' theme song started playing after Aschen Brödel transformed for the first time in order to bust a door with a Genbu Spike! :D
Highly recommended for anyone who played previous SRW OG or PXZ games!
Putting the character designs aside, this game has some very addictive battle system.
The objective is to avoid a "Forced Evasion" while attacking and to attempt the highest number of hits and damage possible. It is a very satisfying system if you can manage to pull the attack sequence off.
You also get some cool animations when finishing moves are used.
With so much focus on battle, there are some cons.
The world map, town menu and menu in general are a bit of an eye sore for a game that has many good action sequence in battle.
However, you will be fighting enemies majority of the time that you probably won't care in the end.
There is also no touch screen support. It is such a pity because the feature worked kinda well in SRWW.

It requires skills to make a combo that does a massive damage. It's about power management and timing. You'll not get bored because it's not about pushing A and wait, repeatedly.
After you finished the game, you can start again with the equipments and money you've got.
