I'm sorry I'm late, but the dog ate my homework.

This is a lovely little turn-based fighting game that plays like a cross between a tactical RPG and stone-paper-scissors. You have to outwit your computer opponent by picking the correct moves, but you're only able to control the action every three turns...

I really like it too. Bit easy though - pity there's no multiplayer.

I didn't let it finish loading. It was taking ages and I had to pick some cards and thought "oh no, Final Fantasy!"

Being like Final Fantasy is a bad thing? :confused:

I love everything about Final Fantasy apart from the fighting bits. Can't be arsed trawling through endless drop down menus and options whilst watching the Playstation control the action for you. Why can't it be a beat-em-up style control system where you feel like you are actually doing something yourself instead?

This tries to make it more interesting by replacing the "I attack you, you attack me, I attack you, you attack me" game mechanic with "I guess where you're going to be and what you will be doing in one, two and three moves' time and try to find the sequence of events that will both avoid your attack and hit you at some point during that three-move sequence".

Alas. Like I said, this'd be more fun multiplayer.

I love playing the lecherous priest.

I've finished it with every character except the schoolgirl, and I think the best character is definately the demon-woman with the gigantic sword.

I'm hopelessly addicted to this game - I'm playing it again and again despite having beaten every challenge possible, including the one-round kill.
