    I played some of the PS2 titles along with the GBA game. I'm tempted to rent this one as I wasn't that impressed with the demo tbh.

    I cancelled my order. I quite liked the look and feel of it but it seemed to be a game that took quite a lot of time up, which right now I am a little short on and I have a backlog of games to play.

    That's the safe thing to do. I've still got 5 or 6 games sitting around unplayed at the moment. Some of them have been wrapped up for a good couple of years now, so i've halted my buying habbits. At least for physical releases.

    to be fair the metro has never been a serious game reviewer in my eyes. It seems to me that the reviewers are journalists rather then gamers (the same with all newspaper publications)

    i can see this getting quite a few good reviews

    @Afiddes Metro is serious - they're the guys who used to run Gamecentral on Channel 4 teletext

    ahhhhh kk my bad!

    i will admit to not havign read the metro for a few years but remember the games review section to be a rare occasion and usually feature one game with a half page review and a few 1 paragraph reviews at the bottom. I have attempted the sun a few times since but it left a bad taste in my mouth so i seem to have tarred all with the same brush

    I think the Metro reviews often make good points, personally, but everyone gets different things out of reviews.

    I wonder if this is a game that would benefit from being played on the XL given that I personally felt that the demo could get quite cluttered on the small screen during battles. Might be that it's all down to the camera I would find it just as cluttered on a 90% bigger screen too. :p

    Will get it at some point anyway.

    Metro Skyward Sword review was spot on if memory serves me correctly, I tend to agree with their reviews. Everything he's mentioned there as a negative I can totally imagine being stuff that would bother me in this, like the 90's white rapper voice work etc.

    Well, Amazon are readying mine for dispatch. Will let you all know how I get on over the weekend. At least I *should* have it for the weekend as I was on a Prime trial when I ordered it...

    The only thing really putting me off this one is that I never bothered to play the originals. Not a single one of them.

    @Murbal Thanks, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

    If you never intend to play them you could get pretty quick plot rundowns. I think one of the reviews said they had some in-game?

    If you ever do get a chance to I would recommend giving 1&2 a go as they were pretty good fun.

    To be fair, i've only ever heard great things. I've just never got around to playing them. Some day i'll probably sit down and play through the lot. It's just a matter of when really.

    EG review actually has me wanting to go back and play through the earlier games again.

    The Metro review made me want to play tWEwY again. Joshua was great albeit a bit of a git and Neku's negativity was surprisingly fun.

    I've not even seen any gameplay of this franchise but I do like RPGs of any kind. Should I be getting this or will it leave me in a quivering wreck of confusion?

    Oh. Thought I heard someone ;-)

    In all seriousness MadCaddy, my copy should hopefully be appearing today so await my initial feedback... I do anticipate the story will confuse, it's whether or not the mechanics do too.

    First Impressions - this is a bit of a brain dump so hopefully it mostly makes sense...

    - Looks wonderful, drop sections particularly.
    - Plenty of customisation.
    - Camera woeful - it's CPP compatible so that may improve it but locking on could be simpler.
    - Flowmotion is great - a v neat addition for traversing and utilising the environment
    - Combat is entertaining for the most part. Blocking/dodging/abilities on a cool down from your command deck are very similar to Birth By Sleep but the addition of flowmotion opens it up even more.
    - Lots of tutorials that you will want to view, plus memories and a glossary to fill in details of the story (which is notably barmy).
    - The switching between main characters seems a neat idea but may start to get annoying the more involved you become with the game - apparently it's on a timer so if you're not paying attention it could happen in the middle of a boss fight.
    - 3DS screen feels a little too small for the action imho.

    I shall persevere!

    Playing this game has sold me on the idea of the 3DS XL. It looks really nice but could do with a larger screen.

    Jaggies be damned! The 3DS XL shall be mine!

    I keep trying to love these games and I do in theory but I just never manage to get into them. The same happened with the first Kingdom Hearts game too.

    Club Nintendo are currently offering a 3 pack of AR cards for 200 stars. May be of interest to some.

    Three cards seems quite a small pack to me, although I presume there aren't all that many of them.
