My impressions after beating Breath of Fire. Certainly a hard game to figure out.
I guess it just comes down to how much I got stuck in a game. I actually think this is the game that I got stuck on the most in all my history of gaming. I mean, starting out its fine, eventually I figured out what I had to do, but it just gets more and more cryptic. Sometimes they were really stupid things that I overlooked or things I simply had no idea about at all. It really came down to me admitting I didn't know what to do or any idea of where to go and just simply look it up on a guide. It really hurt my gamer pride, but honestly I don't see myself completing this game without one. And in the end it really just came to me finishing it as fast as I could. I just didn't care anymore and just wanted to end this game. Then when I finally did,and I still didn't know how I felt about beating this game, I mean I wasn't mad or anything, just confused. Like "was that fun?"
Conclusion: I don't know if I truly liked or disliked Breath of Fire. It has a lot of good ideas, but the second half of the game just came to me using a guide to figure out what to do because the game doesn't tell you at all what to do or where to go, it simply doesn't give directions. I mean, it's an old gem but the age really shows.
