[Discussion] Optimal chapter playthrough order

Postby Lemmy Claypool » Wed Sep 14, 2005 4:08 pm

Having not yet played this game for myself, I just wanted to know which way the story would make most sense. I.E. playing Hugo 1 first, then Chris 1, then Geddoe 1, then Thomas 1, and so forth, going in the same order for chapters 2 and 3 (though Thomas would be exempt from chapter 3...I think).

What Konami has recommended is just as what you have said; Hugo 1 -> Chris 1 -> Geddoe 1. Although Thomas 1 CAN become playable after Geddoe 1, this is not always the case; the Thomas chapters are bonuses, so it's not really important that you play them in order. However, his chapters become inaccessible after you get to chapter 4.

The order recommended by Konami is probably fine, because otherwise you can have the plot spoiled before it happens in other chapters.

I don't know if this is Optimal, but the order I play them allows you to choose some optional Duels. I play them in the order of:

Hugo Chapter 1 (optional Duel against Chris)
Chris Chapter 1
Geddoe Chapter 1
Chris Chapter 2 (optional Duel against Lucia)
Hugo Chapter 2
Geddoe Chapter 2
Geddoe Chapter 3
Hugo Chapter 3 (optional Duel against Chris)
Chris Chapter 3
Thomas Chapter 1
Thomas Chapter 2
Chapter 4
Chapter 5

Hope that helps.

Yeah, thanks SARS and Geddoe, that does indeed help. :D

But Geddoe, would your order spoil any aspects of the story for the sake of the duels? Or would it just mean I get some extra duels and not spoil any story?

also, if you played Hugo Chapter 1 before Chris Chapter 1 and you completed Jimba's request/"mission", you will see a scene at the end of Chris Chapter 1.

hmmm, i am actually curious--does Hugo keep Jimba's item in his inventory if he fails the mission?

He meant if you don't give the pentacle to the butler. Basically it was Jimba's request and he failed by not giving the item. Yes, you can keep the pentacle throughout the entire game.

I think the Chapter 3s are suppose to go Chris Hugo Geddeo, according to how they arrive to meet Sana in the Flame champ hideaway.

Maybe if you looked hard enough you might find Freed & Yoshino in the hideaway. Just kidding, what you meant to say was Sana instead of Sanae.

Hugo Chapter 3 (optional Duel against Chris)

How do you get this? I played it through and i can't get this.
Just think about it. Someone might be writing a Kingdom Hearts 2/Pretty Cure x-over right now. That someone is me.

Now playing POTC At World's End
Nozomi Yumehara and Darkside Dream... Miko (Princess) Yumehara
Sisters (Yes Precure 5/Precure X-over)

you have to choose the right options and duel lucia during chris chapter 2, that will unlock the scene of chris dueling lucia in hugo chapter 3

Duels were so funny. What was up with that strange duel between Luc and Sasarai in Luc's POV? The whole fireball thing threw me off. Then again they are more mage like, I can't imagine either of them using a sword or some kind of savage weapon others use in the series. haha.

AND i'm a GUY!! Geez...


No offense, but that is really hard to determine due to your username and ... um fanbase of games and characters.. that would be the best way to put it.

Chris vs. Lucia happens in Hugo Chapter 2.

The option to duel Chris in Chapter 3 is at Chisha.
