Wow. Just wow.

Yeah, so it doesn’t have the soul collecting of Dawn of Sorrow, and the tag-team system ranges from pointless to annoying, but how any reviewer can say this is anything less than fantastic is beyond me. It ticks all the boxes: save points and warps in sensible places, a shop to buy potions, a great (if confusing, currently) story, and excellent graphics and controls.

Today’s play took me back to the City painting, as Wind told me to “find the butcher in town and mince some meat”. So off I went, found the meat, slapped it about a bit, and erm, nothing happened. Tried all sorts of powers and skills and magic and weapons on it, and… nothing. Hmm.

Then I left the painting and went off exploring the castle. I found another painting (which I haven’t entered yet) and another boss (some green goo in a big pot) who was pretty easy to kill. Level 12 and 130% explored now!
