Still not to the Aveyond level, but fun.
This is a prequel to Ella's hope, and came out after I think. On the whole Ella's Hope is the better game. This is a typical Eridani RPG. It is lots of fun, many side quests, different scenes, etc.
But... you rarely get a chance to select your own party, and several times you are a party of only 2 or 3. Since you don't get to choose your party most of the time, you might have equipped a special something and now its gone until you get the player back.
Like Ella's Hope, anyone who has played an RPG before can play this on HARD mode without a problem. Also similarly, you have to hunt out side quests and can easily miss them or miss the chance to fulfill them. At least this game has a journal listing them.
2 more issues I have with Eridani games:
the spells are limited and you don't have a choice, you just get more slowly as you level up.
The male characters are wimpy and effeminate, I can't imagine that most guys would want to play these games, but maybe that was the intent.

Like many other 2-D Adventure Games
4 Modes ... Easy- Normal -Hard -&- Story
In Story Mode your Toonie is Pre-Leveled, with fewer Fights.. Same Quests, but no "Stray" monsters/critters
Had to Mute the Music pretty early into the Demo
Overall, Nothing New or Special.. I'm passing...

For a lover of RPG's this is not for me
As the title suggests, I love RPG games. This one for me however wasn't that memorable. I played the demo (only the demo) about three hours ago and to be honest, I can already remember very little of the storyline. For those who have played even five mins of the game will undertsand why I think it is strange. Without giving any spoilers away, it does seem like a bazaar storyline. However, it may unfold and become a beautiful tale like many other RPG's did. I'm not particularly fond of any of the characters so far. Leah to me, seems to have no depth and as for some of the other characters you encounter early on, if they were real I would possibly think of giving them a slap round the chops!
The gameplay itself is very typical of its kind. Graphics & music are what you would expect, so really, rather average.
I played it on story mode (not a great lover of loads of fighting in RPG's, they tend to bore me) and have yet to encounter a villain! For an hours worth of story playing and even on story mode, I find this rather strange. Also considering right at the beginning a guard at a gate states you need a weapon... Little touches like this can annoy me slightly, but that is only a personal opinion.
As regular RPG players will know, getting lost often can be a bit of a deal breaker! Unfortunately, that was my deal breaker. I spent a good ten mins trying to find people and then another 10 mins trying to figure out where I was supposed to go! Normally, you have little hints to work out, maybe I missed them, but the demo ended whilst I was lost and due to this I had no interest in continuing.
If you are new to RPG's I would not suggest this to start with if you are a regular player, give it a go, but I wouldn't suggest it on story mode.

The grafics are terrible, the game play is horrible. Where have the good games gone to.
