There are turn-system battles, magic spells and overhead explorations: all of the are available in this release. The game is acknowledged as one of the best RPGs ever to be released and is the last one featuring the Algol Star System.
I've been waiting for this one for a while! This episode, m the series is best described as not as good as Part 2, but better than 3. The graphics are bright and colorful, and the audio Is pretty good The only place PS4 lags is in the plot department. I couldn't get into the characters, and the story twists weren't surprising. However. PS4 is sffll an excellent title, and definitely worth buying. RPGs are great, so try this one!
Having blown through the second and third games. I awaited PS4 as a welcome challenge and was not disappointed. The hew magic technique where you combine magic spells was a plus Everything from the large quest to the many characters will keep you glued to the TV; I know I was. Or maybe it was the feet that the game costs almost $100. Ouch! It's a great game, but the price will frighten many players away.
When I started PS4, it seemed I wasn't going to enjoy it at all because of how slow the story developed. Well, it took a while, but I found myself really getting into the game. The weapons, the magic, the potions, the characters and their abilities were all great. On the down side. I thought the graphics should have been cleaner and less dithered, and the music was a rnirxx disturbance. All in all. a good game for the PS series.
I must admit, from first glance this game just didn't look too great. It took quite some playing for the story to progress, but once it did, you get involved. There is a good selection of magic, weapons and other assorted RPG items to keep you happy. The only drawbacks were the lack of graphic detail and the fact that the music can get annoying. However, it's still a top RPG with enough game play to get you wrapped up in it.
