Never played one before but the battle system isn't to my liking and having to equip items at the house is just weird. Item use refreshing at the house is an odd thing as well.

Lol. Maybe this is why I can't use the tools I made.

PS2 entries are closer to traditional JRPGs and are honestly my favorites in the series. The Mana Khemia games were super great to me, if you've never played those.

The Switch one is still rare. Amazon has been getting new stock of the PS4 and you can still get it new at $39.99

I really debated this game. Seems like a ton of buzz, but if you bailed after 2 hours... This deters me. Why did it turn you off?

Battle system is kinda wonky. It's like active battle but you can only control one person at a time. If you switch to someone else and don't input commands fast enough and another person comes up the AI picks what they do. So really you only control one person at a time.


In order to use items in battle you make them with the Alchemy aspects, but you have to equip them in the spot you make them which is in her house. Items have a limited use in battle. You can reset the use by going back to the house cause you can basically go back anywhere instantly like a fast travel to the house. Each character I think can equip 3 items each. You can't seem to heal with items outside of battle. Also the menu for creating items is weird and you can't, or I couldn't figure out how to make mass items. I think the more ingredients and better ingredients you add get better items but again, I decided to bail.


The last aspect is the main loop seems to be scouring the environment for items to collect for the alchemy. Which is kinda boring.


I'm not sure if my concerns are all fixed by trying to continue through it but I've just decided to move onto something else. Decided to try Greedfall which isn't in my normal realm of gaming.
