Unsure if I should keep this game or not

#1 Posted by mordecaix7 (657 posts) -

I'm not sure whether I should keep plodding through this game or not.  It seems to be kinda fun, collecting the new weapons and stuff but I have a few complaints:
 

  • Compare function to what I have equipped doesn't seem possible
  • Cannot pause (i am interrupted frequently during my free time)
  • Cannot play on SD TV (text is way too small, had to resort to my 19in. computer monitor)
  • Combat arts and other aspects of the game are very confusing and I've failed to make many combat arts work at all
  • Um...how does the encumbrance system work?
  • Can't stand the camera view
 
I've got five days to decide if I want to keep it or get my money back in full.  Sifting through loot scratches a big itch I have in any game I play but when I'm not doing that I'm not terribly sure I'm really enjoying what I'm doing (especially that stupid no-pause thing)

I'm kind of in the same boat as you, but I'm going to keep mine as it's for PS3 and I want a big PS3 collection some day.

Did you happen to read the instruction manual with the game?  It explains a lot, including some of the details about Combat Arts.  I would also suggest looking around online for some helpful hints on that. 
 
Other than that, I'm keeping my copy because it's pretty fucking sweet.  Unfortunately, Ascaron has shut their doors, so Lord knows how much support the game will get for updates or anything.

Yeah i've read it.  One particular example of not getting a combat art to work is the Inquisitor.  one of the combat arts is supposed to raise corpses from the dead to protect me or something like that but I use the buff and nothing ever happens.
 
*EDIT*
Returned it during my lunch break today.  Picked up Muramasa: The Demon Blade instead. :)
