Technically sound and well-written, but tough as nails. 0

Covenant of the Plume is deceptively slick for a strategy RPG.  It drew me in with its sweet, sweet nectar, got me in a dark alley, and then beat the holy hell out of me with its sudden spike in its difficulty.GRAPHICS AND SOUND-Square Enix pulls off one of the coolest introduction videos on the DS to date with Covenant.  I don't normally point out cinematics, but sometimes when a good one happens on the DS, it really makes me realize how cool handhelds have become.The rest of the game features ...
