The plot is told through cutscenes voiced by the characters. The voice acting isn't the best in the world. They've got the right voices for the job, but a lot of the actual voice acting is dry. Luckily, if the English voice overs are annoying you, you have the option to switch the voices to Japanese. The plot jumps between Chopin's life and the dream world which the gameplay centers in
Cool Game Especially for Anime Fans5/6/2008
Cool game so far. I wasn't sure what to expect but after playing it for the first time my jaw dropped to the ground after I saw the exquisite anime/3d styled graphics. The game has an interesting story about a young girl with real-time rendered cinematics to tell it. So far I am on a journey through a fantasy countryside (bird's eye view Diablo-style) and occasionally run into a baddie and then the screen zooms into battle mode similar to Final Fantasy battles. I would recommend this game to anyone who, 1. Likes fantasy, 2. Likes anime (the sweeter side of anime - not ninjas, etc), and 3. Likes third person style games. One additional note is that you can change the cinematic/game play audio to Japanese with English subtitles - awesome if you like to hear the foreign language.
The demo is amazing!8/25/2007
I had the pleasure of previewing this game last night. You can download the demo from the Xbox Live Marketplace for free. The first element of the game demo that I really noticed was the beautiful cell shaded graphics. It was so beautiful it felt almost like I was in a dream world watching thecharacters and game environmenton my television. You can tell alot of time was put into creating this game and making it as perfect as it possibly could be. The controls felt very fluid. I love the battle system. It would be described as part turn based and action. You are given a time frame to exacute each charater's actions. This made the battles more intense and exciting to experience. I am a huge fan of music and especially classical music as I am a musician so I love how they incorporated the composer Chopin into the story. The music in the game isbeautiful and any person will appreciate it.After playing the demo I can tell I will really love the full game due to the story, gameplay, music and graphics. After playing the demo it left me witha strongdesire to play further. I can not wait until the game is released.
