Necessary Patch for a Great Game

Reviewed By: Vortiene on 29 Jan 2022

This game was shunned by reviews when it came out for this one simple reason. It’s a shame the game itself is really well made with quite a bit of content in it, only for it to fall to the wayside due to this glaring issue of overly high encounter rate that can so easily be fixed.

I played through the game a couple years ago with action replay codes to reduce the encounter rate and raise the EXP rate to balance things out. The game’s got so many unique areas and quite a few side quests. If I had to say anything else that needs to be fixed with the game in the future by fans after this one thing, it’s the potential bugs and softlocks the game is known to have if you do the wrong things. There are walkthroughs out there that will explain how to avoid these bugs, but it would be great for them to be simply fixed in general.

Thanks for making a patch version of this fix. The action replay codes for fixing the rates have sort of disappeared from easy searching online.
