Advantages: Fun fighting style, great characters and story line
Disadvantages: Can only save at designated points
This game is based on the composer Chopins last moments as he is on his deathbed drifting between this world and the next. It is a classic RPG and one of my personal favourite games, and it is actually the meaning behind my username!
You start of flicking between the stories of two main characters, chopin and a girl named polka, as you go on you meet new characters which join your group and you follow together ( This game follows a lovely musical theme from characters names such as allegretto, salsa and falsetto. It also has fun music - related mini games and references throughout. ) It has a fun turn taking fighting style and you learn exciting new moves as you level up, there is a small degree of customisation in this as you can buy different clothing and weapons with all have different perks and effects from travelling salespeople and in villages, there you can also buy items to help in battles with effects such as restoring health, powering up your attacks and bringing teammates back to life. The cut scenes make a brilliant story and i always enjoyed watching them but some of them are quite long and if that's not your thing you can easily skip them.
You cannot save whenever you like there are designated save points dotted around the map which appear as glowing crystals. The graphics aren't top of the range but they fit the game well, the characters have been made in a cute anime style and the scenery is detailed and enchanting. There is such a variety of the creatures you fight and they are all very imaginative, it is always exciting to discover a new opponent! One piece of advice i can give about this game is not to rush through it, take your time leveling up because the bosses are fun but can be very tough if you are not prepared, for example, i got to a chapter about halfway through the game where you go onto a pirate ship, it warned me that once i crossed over to the ship i could never go back, i should have left it until i had leveled up more but i didn't, i went across unprepared, it was physically impossible to beat the boss and as a result had to restart the entire game, i also know two other people who made that same mistake so be warned!
Like i said before, this is one of my all time favourite xbox games and i would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, interesting RPG but DO NOT RUSH IT!
