So now that the cpsIII emu is available, everyone can finally try and play this hard to find game.
It’s a lot better than what I thought, pretty limited for vs play due to lack of playable characters, but it has the best single player mode ever and graphics are really good. Backgrounds look all nice (some are quite gorgeous) with some destructable stuff here and there, and sprite detail and coloring is amazing, with animation so good that only SF3 surpasses it (and maybe Jojo, but JoJo is unconsistent as far as animation quality goes). CFJ renditions of Warzard characters were quite bad compared to the cps3 eye-candy.
The level up system is interesting, it’s nice to see how you get new moves, how Leo gets new swords and shields which change his sprite; enemies also become stronger as your level rises (that’s not effected by difficulty level itself) so that they start doing new moves as well - this keeps replay value really good.
I just found a second ending with Leo - so the game has multiple endings. I continued in both cases, so that’s not what triggers the different ending. Maybe it’s the character level? Are there more than 2 endings per character?
Also finishing moves look cool, slicing enemies in half with Leo never gets old
This game needs soo much documentation!
I didn’t really try vs play aside from a couple of matches with lv 1 characters still not knowing anything. I don’t think it’s tournament worthy due to the extremely small selectable roster, but it would be nice if it’s somewhat balanced - you know, kicking in a Warzard mini side-tournament in bigger events could be fun if vs play turns out to be interesting/fun
