This one of the darkest games this generation. The plot twists are insane and it's somewhat fun early on.

Yeah this part reminded me of DQ4 as well, but honestly I've found the last few hours to be a bit boring. Can't wait to get the whole crew back again.

Still have no idea how one of the greatest RPGs ever has a post with this few responses

Playing the Switch version. It's actually really cool that you can go through the whole game in 2D, but I'll probably be leaving that alone for a while.

Loving the auto battle which really speeds things up and makes grinding less tedious. Also really like the ability the move around in battle, even though it doesn't affect turns or defense at all, it still makes things a lot more exciting.

the 2D mode to me is more of a 2nd or 3rd playthrough thing. its a TOTALLY different game

the party AI is also really really good. Also uh, make a beeline straight for Erik's dual wield.

I unlocked his steal ability even though I use that skill like 0.001% of the time in JRPGs

100+ hours and it's still engaging, but


SPOILERS





I'm not a fan of the time travel part, yeah I get that it opens the game world up, but it really cheapens the impact of a certain character's death, and all that stuff and character development that happened after the tree's fall all seem pointless now. Not sure if the game addresses this after you fight the true final boss.






SPOILERS END

i have heard the same thing from others and i absolutely get the feeling. but it does do something with it in the end

honestly its just a matter of the game itself being so good and that they manufactured this script for what is legitimately a videogamey post game with all the post game video gamey challenges that it feels like an 'Act 3'. Personally i was so happy to have them back, i really didn't care

i don't wanna spoil it but if you make it to the end, they put a decent little bow on it in a way that only a DQ game can.
