I do wish this game was like Guardian Heroes for Sega Saturn back in the day.

    I honestly had no idea what I was getting into when I purchased this game while it was on sale. I'm a big fan of JPRG titles, and was suddenly surprised when I realized that this title falls into the genre. Immediately I was worried when I heard people drawing comparisons to another throw-back RPG named Earthlock, but my worries were consoled after playing this for a few hours. This title is wonderful.

    I love Joe Mad's art and this comic. Wish there was more to the comics, but I'll take a game with the art. It's a dungeon crawler with a lot of Turn Based action, but for a game at this price point it's complete and gives you a lot of game for the value. Would be five, but I don't think it's perfect or a game changer, just incredibly good at the type of game it is.

    I've always been a fan of Joe Madureira's art, including the Battle Chasers comic. This game allows his artwork to come to life. It's an old school, turn-based RPG done really well. Great game if you're a fan of Joe Mad's artwork or enjoy turn-based RPG's.

    I was ecstatic to see early images of this game and its amazing character and art work coming to consoles. I was hoping for a next gen Guardian Heroes side scrolling hack n slash....What this game is in fact is another turn based RPG. Bummer.

    The game itself is average. Has some intense difficulty spikes but overall is a pretty standard RPG. Worth buying if you like classic RPG's and can get it on sale.
