So I just finished up the El Shaddai demo and I gotta say I loved the art style and direction they took, everything is artsy and lovely to look at as it is to listen too. The only downside I can see is the one button combat it has going on but I'm sure it's something you can get used too and master in time. I'm very interested in the story and how Enoch and Lucifel will react toward one another. So far Lucifel seems to come in and inject himself into where there is a boss fight and give some valuable or possibly sarcastic information regarding whom your about to fight. But I don't know Japanese... so XP
Guard button guards and you jump nice and high though the check points for certain area's can be just a smidge unforgiving it's just a small issue. I liked the way Enoch moved and you can easily just jump out of the way of being attacked (at least by guess with the funky bow sword, the shooters are VERY annoying and I can tell they will tick me off as time goes by. But again, small issue.
Over all I liked the game but I'm unsure if this will be a day 1 for me.
Might and Magic: Clash of hero's was one of those games which i didn't see the quicklook for, I was browsing Ps3 trophies and spotted something new and check it out, seen it had neat sounding trophies and that it was a possible srpg, more searching found that it was something I missed on the DS so I had to download it just to see what was up. I'm really glad I did.
M&M:CoH while I'm not too interested in the story (may change over time..) I found the art to be... lackluster..Western Anime has always left a bad taste in my mouth, mostly because it usually just looks really ugly. So this games art by mean of character's look like poop. My sister made the comment that the elven girls father looked like zelda when he was dead... it's true.. But the area, the tree's and so on look fantastic and i do like the demons XD Anyway..
Best thing to be said about this game is the actual 'game' part of it, from getting additional party companions (pixies to awesome fucking deer and bears) to just the normal archers and see what does what. Alinging characters side by side matching 3-4 will make you a wall, while aligning up and down three units will make an attack force. Later your able to then take three units of the same color, the add three more which bumps up the attacking unit's to another level of damage dealing. The same for your walls that can be upgraded to 2.
Your deer you take two unit's of it's color and power it up to super sayin and if it remains untouched for 3 turns it unleashes hell. I gotta say those deer have saved my ass more than a few times and not once did a lose a match ^^. The only confusion i had at first was that I could only move the bottom characters.. but getting rid of a unit can be done anywhere. With that little but of confusion out of the way it made room for a lot of fun with building walls out of your units to making an attack force or boosting up your deer to mess some stuff up. it's rather addicting and I eventually reached the last boss, beat it and it was over.. I was bummed.
I can honestly say I had a LOT of fun with this and looking forward to picking it up and playing... after i finish Dragon age 2... I'll write a blog about that later.. I just.. need...more...time!
