Played the first part of the demo a few minutes ago. Nice visuals and the battle system is good once you get the hang of it. Took me two times to beat the guardian of the woods because I didn't know I could move around during battle the first time. I'd suggest not using your little fighter and just fight him yourself and use magic to heal and to use spells on him.

I was already sold on the game before even trying the demo.

Putting a command menu in a real-time battle is annoying. Overall the game feels very slow. The demo changed the status from preorder to waiting until very cheap.

I played the demo at Eurogamer and loved it. I've got the Wizard's Edition pre-ordered, can't wait!

You can actually run around while maneuvering the commands by LR/R2.

I game is faster than I thought.

Day 1 buy for me!

I was 50/50 on the demo, the first part was actually boring while the second part of the demo I actually enjoyed.

A lot of people have been telling me that the game, or at least the demo :P, is amazing! Plus, it's being co=developed with Studio Ghibli, same people who made Spirtied Away.. :o


This game is worth looking into :)

I was well aware of that when I wrote my comment. Actually, if I were not able to move freely the combat system had been a little better, imo. Moving around while browsing the battle commands is exactly the part that annoys me that much. If they let me move in real time they should assign the copmmands to buttons that I can press in real time. It's not like they're occupied with something else.

BTW; when I said slow I didn't mean the battles. Everything else feels awefully slow.
