Having just bought the game yesterday and playing it for a few hours, I am thoroughly surprised and satisfied with the game. All the controls have been remastered with the new interface to make finding information extremely convenient. Also, the music and extensive voice-overs are very much top notch. In fact, the music is so good, that I am tempted to find the original soundtrack.
Ironically, the english dubbed voices sound better than the japanese counterpart, making the game feel wholesome. Hearing the funky orcs with hispanic voices talking like mexicans really made my day. Also the one-liners for all the characters are very comedic and fitting.
I guess the only disappointment that will come to mind are just the low-quality sprites, but they don’t really matter after an hour into the game. For those who already have the game, I recommend changing the art portrait from smooth to sharp to reduce strain on the eyes (making the sprites pixelicious). In addition to changed gameplay mechanics, the fast forward/skip button is possibly the best addition to this SRPG genre as of now.
I will upload a pdf version of the game manual later to clarify the new features of this game and to save myself the trouble from ruining a really nice manual. This is also because the paint on the manual cover comes off very easily on the fingers, leaving nasty prints on the cover.
