A very original game with a few gameplay and functional flaws that may frustrate some.
-the combat and gem system is very original
-the art style is great, and the story and characters are very interesting
Not too fond:
-the battle music variety. There is only one combat track which loops. I ended up muting it.
-New game+. It is merely a restart with no changes to enemies or difficulty, with your level and money carried over. At least it makes New game+ much faster to complete for the alternate endings.
Frustrating and irritating:
-New game+. It resets your mastered spirit skills. The game already restricts your acquition of skills by limiting the number spirits you can hold in the duration of the game and the availability of spirits by location.
-Kirikiri game engine bugs. Kirikiri is an extremely buggy engine that can make saving an irritant. Also it can crash the GUI and freeze the combat. Rotate your saves, and save often.
Save menu bug- When bringing up the save menu, the menu is blank and I can't access the first page or it brings up the Spirit book.
Fix- Click on page one of the save menu which brings you to the Spirit book. Exit out of the Spirit book and open the save menu again. It should display properly.
Combat freeze- In combat, sometimes I cast an action and the game does not respond.
Fix- Hope you have a recent save. You have to restart the game client.
All in all, a very intriguing game, if you are forgiving of poor New game+ balance and the various bugs of the Kirikiri engine.
