4.0 out of 5 stars
Unique - in a good way!, 11 July 2005
Unless you played Otogi 1 you probably won't have played anything like this - I certainly hadn't! This is primarily a 3rd person melee game but with RPG elements such as experience, levels and different stats for each of your characters (which can be increased by raising levels and/or using skills related to that stat e.g. using many physical attacks results in increased physical damage and health).
The game is spread across 27 stages which can be replayed in order to get all the items, more experience or money, or just to get that 'A' for objects destroyed! This gives the game a fairly open-ended feel and lots of replayability - especially when you consider the Havoc Mode (various challenges that produce items when completed).
The only reason this gets 4/5 stars is because it is definately not for everyone, it has a very Japanease feel which I personally like but may to be to everyone's taste.
