I'm sure everyone here can relate to the feeling of following a game, anticipating it's release, and then peeling back the plastic wrap to pop in a new game? Yeah? Well I pre ordered this game months ago, because I had been completely wrapped up in the art style and dark and twisted story line. Now, I'd also like to say that the whole strategy role playing game or tactical rpg or whatever aspects intimidated me. Because this is my first venture into this genre. So I was very weary, and overwhelmed with the notion and premise of the game play...
I'm kinda slow in the intelligents department, and organizing huge stratagies and attacks, well.. It's not really my thing, or so I thought. Eternal Poison is surprisingly user friendly, and the tutorial was much needed, and very helpful, so those who are a little turned off by the srpg genre, I say if you can find a copy of this game take a chance, it's worth it. The one complaint I have so far would have to be the battle animations, which if any of you have been following this game, know you can simply turn them off, and the battles are quick and engaging. And exploiting weaknesses is loads of fun, and combination attacks are so satisfactory when pulled off successfully.
What I know of the story so far is from Thage and Raki's pov, and it's the most appealing to me at this point. I'm sure once completing their tale I'll jump right back in with the other stories and find out all the ins and outs of Eternal Poison.
Last thoughts, I just wanted to give some praise to this game, and as the first review stated above, it's a gem, and worthy in any rpg collection, I for one do not regret in anyway picking this game up.
