The mechanics don't get as much dislike, except from those who don't like sRPGs to begin with.

The Magedom of Janam had a rich political story to it. A cold but effective ruler was doing his best to set his subordanites against each other to compete both for their own improvement and for his own entertainment. Meanwhile his son is biding his time and trying to stay above the mess until he can take command and set things right, all the while thinking of his younger sister, who is being used as a pawn for science. Enter our hero, someone the prince can confide in and trust while he tends to his own complicated affairs. Then we have Chrodechild and her overtaken country. She is being used as a pawn along with our hero and countless others by the nation we thought to be the good guys. Among these are a number of smaller tribes facing the possibility of invasion and possible enslavement. Towering over it all is a huge superpower trying to take over the world, under the guise of trying to improve it. Finally we have our company, the neutral voice and rallying point against the superpower, the biggest hope for independence. It was all building up to be an emotional and epic power struggle to take down a tyrant.

I kinda liked the trading aspect, but all the time spent on trading and unlocking better equipment wasn't worth all that much because the battles were so... easy.

JanusThePaladin wrote:Anyway, i agree with the entire sentiments of this thread. I thoroughly enjoyed the game up until the invasion of Cynas. When you get to the point before the invasion, your first thought is "really? already?" and from that point on it either moves to fast, or agonizingly slow. I didn't mind fighting the One True King, as he was eluded to throughout the entire game, as opposed to the the tree at the end of S4, however, the sudden decision that he is a Tenkai that inexplicably became all powerful and decided to merge the entire multiverse together simply for the purpose of more power, only he didnt really want the more power, he was just stuck in the loop? Thats about as far fetched and unbelievable as Culex's appearance in Super Mario RPG.

JanusThePaladin wrote:I concur. I mean Duilf mentions that the One King is so powerful only the stars could approach him. It just seems rediculous to me that countless otherworlds hadn't thought of using the Chronicles as a weapon against him. If they have the power to effect the true chronicle its simply logical to think you'd use them to battle the man possessing the true chronicle.
