Current Mood: Bof
Second hand buy, this game is a good investment, except for the ambisenestrous that I am.
A beautiful music, one of those games where you will not turn off sound from the beginning to the end. With Chopin inside, naturally.
Grade: 9 / 10
There is the rub. The principle of a different attack if the character is in the light or not is excellent. The combat system is basically very well. But as soon as you level up, so does the combat system. And with no possibility to go back or to choose “semi-active”. After a very short gaming time, I began getting killed repeatedly by weak monsters simply because I was not precise / coordinated enough.
Grade: 5 / 10
Length / Sidequests
I did not get very far, but the game seems long enough and valid for that matter.
Grade: 7 / 10
Story / characters
It is a game working on the opposition dream/reality and light/dark, while retracing Frederic Chopin’s life (the game begins when he is on his deathbed). The character ideas are good, and well created, and the story seems coherent so far.
Grade: 8 / 10
In the end…
A game for people who like classical music, history, … and have gifted hands.
Final grade: 7.4 / 10
