True rune unites sound interesting. All I know is that the one in S2 wasn't a proper magic unite. It was basically the two runes executing their final spells in succession; one after the other. Compare this to any of the elemental magic unites and you will see the difference.

The game itself should be a stand-alone. Its not hate, I just have high expectancy for the series, that's all, everyone here does.
However, we know that there was no "save the storyline with another game and fix it all" move or whatever. Konami deliberately planned to produce the two games together from the very beginning.
And, S3 definitely deserved the 9.0 rating. It was brilliant. It's no surprise some of us are disappointed with S4's "return to the roots" move after the high standards set by S3.
