… Man I really don’t have much to say about it.
Also my reading speeds have been somewhat reduced. Extremely busy with some matters lately and will probably be for a while on. At this point the time I make for reading is my only oasis in this world ;_;
Let’s see… compared to their previous work that I played I feel it’s a step up in terms of setting. In fact, the setting may as well be one of their better made ones with the entire theme of revitalizing a dying village. I mentioned much of what I feel about AXL games in my post about Dolphin Divers.
So, while the setting is pretty nice the rest of it feels like average AXL. People really aren’t kidding when they say you’ve played all of AXL games after picking one or two of them to try.
I almost wonder how AXL manages to produce games with such stable quality, by the end of every game my impressions are roughly the same: a decent, by no means bad, but lacking a punch and easily forgettable story.
It’s also a bit of a pity how AXL games tend to bring in potentially interesting settings that could put the characters into a life or death crisis but rarely makes use of it properly. It gets lightly used here and there but never gets focused on. They mostly end up as something not much better than a SoL regardless of the setting.
It’s just that man, if they’re capable of creating such stable quality, I wish their games were a step above and they produced above average tier games with every release. Then they would be a pretty cool company you can put trust in producing an enjoyable story with every release. It always feels like their games are one step off of reaching that point.
So yeah, typical AXL game. Good setting, could be better, but doesn’t get much better than slightly above average. Enjoyable story but forgettable and relatively plain, lacks a punch to make the story memorable.
