Bappo Posted August 27, 2003 Report Share Posted August 27, 2003 Haven't read any reviews yet so have nothing to compare it to. Went and picked up my SC2 to day and came home with SC2 and Otogi. Wonder how that happened? Otogi is $39.99 so that probably has something to do with it. SC2 is fun but had to try the other. If you played the demo you know what gameplay is like, no need to repeat. A 3D fighting game where the prefered combat is in the air. Magic force decreases slowly through a stage and can be replenished by releasing souls, killing demons, etc. If your MF goes to 0, your life force starts to deplete to an eventual death. Kind of an artificial level timer. You gain levels, buy and sell items and magic, use different skills and magic, and generally complete your goals. One interesting twist is that you can complete your goals fairly quickly but you dont release many spirits if you do so. You can DEVISTATE your environment if you want...no you must to gain exp and cash. You can go back and redo any completed stage from it's current state so that is nice. Fun factor is very high IMO. I like weighing the time pressure with destroying the level and creatures Hard to score a perfect A on a stage. Quite pretty at 480p 16x9 DD5.1 is used well. Camera use is not hard to get used to although it is a bit odd. Using target lock helps. All in all I like the game considering I have completed 3 of 25 stages all be it I have redone each of those 3 levels to better my performance. I know there are unlockables just not sure what and how many. They are unlocked by some combination of spirits released, % of the environment destroyed, # of creatures killed, and score. This is a SEGA game and it reminds me of Panzer Dragoon Orta in that it is not a formula game. Nice and daring in approach. I still like PDO better though, so far.
