    You really need to take some basic english courses. Your spelling, grammar, and punctuation is atrocious.

    You're wasting your breath, he's a painfully obvious troll.

    You're onto something, but he should probably go to kindergarten first, though.

    Terrible Troll and a Terriable Speliar.

    Do you still get to worry about giving your people rice, and make strategic marriages? I haven't played Nobunaga since the first one on NES, I wonder if it ever got any easier to deal with?

    Luckily no. It's not THAT complicated this time around. I've been just thinking of it more as Pokemon + Fire Emblem. It's really not TOO complex. I mean some rules are kinda over the top (Beat within 4 turns OR using the opposite type [super effective move] to defeat them OR not letting your allies get damaged to capture the other person), though it's pretty simple usually. I've clocked about 2 hours into the game so far so I can't say much but it's really fun and addictive.

    unfortunately for me, i will have to wait around two weeks to get it

    Awesome to see this game deliver! And quite honestly? it's the main reason I got a 3DS already instead of waiting a little longer. I love me some good Turn based Strategy games, and really, Pokemon actually works as a series that adds to the genre rather than take from it. Also, I'm a tad disappointed on how short this review was, since it doesn't go into detail about either story, or collecting stuff, which is something this actually does pretty well, by both encouraging you to collect not only all of the 150+ pokemon in the game, but ALL of the human characters that are attuned to each specific pokemon. I thought that was a cool feature and it's a bit weird to not see it mentioned.

    I just hope it can hold its own against FF Tactics, Jeanne D'Ark and Metal Gear Acid!
  • BladedFalcon - June 19, 2012 8:45 p.m.

    Well, I don't expect it to be better than FF Tactics in terms of story, and perhaps it won't have the dept of the job system. However, I'm pretty sure this game has a chance to have a depth and addictiveness of it's own that FFT couldn't have. I liked Jeanne D'Ark a lot, but for me, the graphics alone of this game makes me like it so much better. To me, 2D sprites > 3D Polygons every single time, specially so if your game is in a 2d plane anyway. And to be honest? I never got into either of the Ac!d games, I can see the appeal, but to me the weird mix between turn base, cards and combat never really meshed enough to keep me hooked till the end.

    I felt the same towards Valkyria Chronicles, I didn't like how you moved around freely and took aim. Plus I couldn't stand how they told the story. I do feel I didn't get it a fair try though, since the games are so affordable now I think I may give them a second chance sometime before the Wii U's launch.
  • BladedFalcon - June 19, 2012 9:36 p.m.

    You probably should, as should i as well, since I got the game gifted to me since last year, but haven't gotten time to touch it at all >>;
  • IceBlueKirby - June 19, 2012 2:56 p.m.

    I've started playing Pokemon Black and a bit of Rumble Blast, so I'm in the mood for more Pokemon, and this ought to fit the bill. I've played plenty of SRPGs but not really many straightforward strategy games, so getting used to this will probably be a challenge, but one that I don't think I'll mind spending a while to overcome.
  • onetimebuster - June 19, 2012 2:49 p.m.

    Well at least it works on the 3ds.

    Great Review, Pokemon was normally Deep to begin with, nice to see it transferring to Nobunaga awesomely, definitly gonna try it out. ”Despite cute characters, embraces deep aspects of the genre” Implying Pokemon already wasnt and Pikmin said hi, but I know you had to say it :P
