Is this game any good? From the video on their website, it just looks (at least, the gameplay does) just like a typical JPRG from that era. Nothing really spectacular about it. Am I wrong?
Yes, its quite good actually.
Its long without being boring (you can manage parties of 5 characters
but you don't need to issue individual orders; rather you can control
the flow of battle with formations and such, although you'll always
have full control of the main character), the graphics may not be
ground breaking, but they are solid, same for sound.
The beauty of Burning Heroes requires that the player
scratches past the surface to notice its uniqueness:
multiple interconnected scenarios, the ability to choose
your own companions and a plot that is compelling, captivating
and humorous make this game a veritable Enix gem.
Personally I see it as Enix's equivalent of Treasure of the Rudras
as far as quality and polish goes.
