Have you ever saw something simple and trivial created gaining a magical proportion just for sheer imagination of the creator? If no, then experience it. And you have the best way to do it courtesy the latest creation by Media.Vision and Square Enix. This simple yet awe-inspiring game has an aura of freshness around it so much so that it breaks the earlier shackles of limitations the iPhone games are generally associated with and has gained a dimension of sublimity that is worth to be adored and cajoled by all sects of gamers.
The basics of the game are simple rich with all the customary features of iPhone game backed by a simple yet solid storytelling that forms the backbone of the game. The protagonist named Darwin is picked up and captured in a mysterious mansion from where he is forcibly sent to fight a string of deadly battles in some mysterious lands. While the previous version was all about fighting and fighting between two groups or teams, this version is all about a more humane touch with Darwin being forced to sacrifice certain people close to him just to save the world.
The game revolves around random battles – there’s no doubt about it and like any other game of this genre each battle ends up with rejuvenation of HP and cancellation of any status ailments. But the difference in this game is that it has added two all the new dimensions called Sopia and Advent abilities and that has made all the difference. Each and every character of the game is associated with a skill meter which they can fill as they fight it out enabling them to inflict massive damage to the enemy and heal up their own injuries in quick time. As you go up from one level to another each character earns additional Wake abilities so as to ensure that none falls behind the other in terms of skill and abilities.
The features are simply stunning – to say the least. The battles scenes are breath taking, the set up simply amazing and are indeed a visual treat, the characters are so close to life that if reminds you of a film. With the option to switch from type of ability to the other in no time, you have a lot of variation that really is a key feature.
Perhaps the only lacuna the game has is in its story. It lacks the expected twist and somehow I have a feeling that it fails to reach the height at any point. And the other thing that will bother you is the voiceover. It’s only in Japanese and when you don’t understand it you lose much of the vigor the game has to offer. But for these two features, the game is an exemplary one and is worth possessing. I would suggest you to go for it even if that costs you $17.99.
