You find yourself in the body of non-ordinary student Maya who's curious enough to find out that there's something bad going on in the world. Maya lives at an 'underground' and most poor shell of seven space shells-islands forming together the Septerra planet system. And she's a fine girl btw :-) The storyline: members of highest core, so called 'Chosen' decided to enslave all other people. So here you are the poorest against
the highest lords with all their technology and knowledge. But you're not alone, your friends -- Grubb, technoman who can fix any machine, makes his own robots, including another your friend robo-dog named Runner, and other ones -- form party with you. On your way you're continually visiting all the shell worlds, each of them
with its own specific culture, architecture.
There's a lot of adventure tasks,
and the battling system doesn't require a big action. rather thinking and to strike the best way. Instead the magic in the battles there are so-called Fate Cards used alone or combined to generate special fire, water and earth spells, also good for healing which is essential.
After successful battle with creatures and enemy people (or gods) your statistics improves, allowing you to make more damage, also you earn the money, and there's a lot of shops around where you can buy better weapons, armor etc.
As a final result, I would suggest this game to all RPG
lovers as well to the adventure players who want to try
something slightly different.
snd: 5/5 - The great soundtrack and great surrounding audio as well. Speech of the characters it's just beatiful.
gfx: 5/5 -
playability: 4/5 -
The control was making me sometimes crazy, and I really don't understand how come you don't see your enemy health status during the battle... anyway this game rocks!
