I played a bit last night and a bit today... 2 hours in total or so. The game looks awesome when walking around (especially when the camera is far away) and I noticed me going "wow" a couple of times.
In battles, where you see the characters really up close, you notice that the characters consist out of big chunks unfortunately. I'll just blame that on the DS's 3D capabilities. Still looks good to me though.
Liking the game so far. (Even though it got bad reviews.) The story is really predictable though: you and your family are "different" -> people are afraid of your kind -> they realise you belong to that kind -> you're hunted on. Throw in some bad guys (a bad church to be exact, a la Tales of Symphonia), and voila. Would've been nice to have a more innovative story, but okay.
Just noticed this topic, sorry guys. The file server's URL changed over the years, which is why the link didn't work. I'll fix the ones I come across, let me know if you find any other seemingly dead DS-Scene links and I'll fix what I can.
