I just finally finished the game. My winning team:
Night Clubber S+8
Black Dragon S+6
It was quite an enjoyable ride, although the game wasn’t without flaws. What annoyed me the most were the long traveling times between islands. If I had to go from Fern Isle to the city and back, one could go mad. Other games have teleport spells for this sort of stuff, I wished the developers had thought about that too. Well, otherwise it was quite good. The monster synthesizing was cool and the graphics were impressive for a DS game.
I’ll pass on post-endgame content, I just don’t have time for that. I guess I should get back to hacking Caravan Heart instead. Although currently there are still Call of Duty 4, Crysis, Unreal Tournament 3, Gears of War (PC), … this is surely the coolest time of the year for a game addict like me.
