Challenging! Brutal, but fully playable!!

Reviewed By: dominic20072007 on 02 Jul 2015

I don’t know about most others, but I personally judge a role playing game based on graphics, battle system, story, and difficulty.

We all know this game has great graphics, a great battle system, and an acceptable story… unfortunately it never had difficulty… until NOW!!

One of the things I look forward to when playing a game is entering a new area or encountering a new boss… and then GETTING MY ASS HANDED TO ME and totally dying!!

Then… I look forward to leveling up, grinding, purchasing weapons/armor (if possible) then attempting the level/boss again, then of course… succeeding!!!

With any game, it is very important to me that I die at least once or twice with each new boss or dungeon… (sometimes more)

This hack does that!! I am through 95% of the game and I have enjoyed every moment of it.

Thank you!!!!
