So I have been reading about this game for quite a while and I just picked it up on its release date, this past Tuesday.

To be honest this is one of the best DS games that I have played, both in functionality and difficulty. For this game the moving around controls are relatively simple. You either touch the screen where you want to walk, or you press up down left or right x b y a for lefties, to walk around. What really gets me is the controls for battles. Essentially you are in control of two characters. One character, the main character, is on the touch screen. You control his attacks by tapping or dragging on the touch screen. The thing that really got me is that there is so many different ways you can attack. And there are a great deal of motions involved in it. The second character is on the top screen. This character is controlled by pressing on the D-pad or abxy buttons. Both characters can be controlled by the player at the same time. Granted the character on the top screen goes into auto battle mode if you idle her for too long. So an incredibly detailed control system.

The game itself has what many people, I know, call "Xenosaga Syndrome". Meaning that there is a great deal of cut scenes filled with lots and LOTS of talking. Sadly, while some of this is needed by the game, all the extra banter and talking is fine on systems with power, like the PS2, but it is not that great on the DS. So that is the one lesser downsides to the game.

Anyway, has anyone else played this game aside from me? What do you think?

I just bought it today and was super confused at the beginning.


After about an hour of playing I've gotten the hang of using different pins, but I still can't concentrate on controlling my second character. I have her on auto mode.
