Pro Fun classic RPG turn-based combat breaks up the story, keeping the game exciting as the story moves along
The combat in game is turn-based, mostly in the form of mini-games. These gameplay sections of the game are sprinkled about in order to break up the story and provide a good bit of interaction over the regular reading sections.
Con Tedious level design
There is a lot of backtracking and lever pulling that gives a feeling of lazy level design to elongate the game.
Con Co-op may leave one or two players out on certain stages
Some stages do not offer gameplay for all co-op players. Although the co-op is drop in drop out, certain points of the game do not offer anything for the other players to do.
The game is pretty difficult, so users may find themselves starting over quite often. This can set the player back or just aggravate them. More patient players should be pretty forgiving, but for the casual player not used to this type of game, it may be too much.
Con Not the most original story
The story feels a little to familiar and a little too contrived.
