I have just started this game for the DS. Am I the only person who is not keen on this? Its rare to see a bad review for it.

The storyline is just all over the place and doesn't make much sense. Does it open up later on? Also theres too much annoying dialogue which you cannot skip when you need to try a section again.

I'm not really enjoying the battle system, mainly because I suck at it. Do they really expect me to multi task between two screens? I end up just tapping in a desperate frenzy. Any tips to make me better?

Also I was expecting an RPG similar to a FF type game but set in modern tokyo, but this seems like an on rails action RPG. Is that an accurate description? Or is it mainly the beginning which is on rails?

I had high expectations for this game and really want to enjoy it, please help!

You need the full set in order for it to work unlike the DS version.

Eden set is immensely useful when fighting the Noise #96. Combine it with Yoshimitsu.
This video shows you how to use it. (Guy is a pro, check out his Final Time Attack video too.)

LOL... you should go to any DS forums. I loved it on the DS and so did many, so im sure it's just you sucking at the battle system on the 2 screens

And you have the wrong understanding of On-Rails. This isnt on-rails, it's just that locations arent open yet during the first few days in the game.

If it's for the DS, it's not this version of the game. They do differ in some areas.

You can fast forward through the dialogue in this version. I have no idea about the DS version.

I didn't like the battle system on the DS either. I set it to Auto (Fast) and let my partner be controlled by the computer at all times. The battle system on the iPhone version is much better IMO.

It's not on rails. "On rails" is used to describe shooting games where you don't control the movement of the character, you just shoot. Examples: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Rail_shooters
I wouldn't even describe it as particularly linear. Maybe it's because you don't have many areas open yet?

The TWEWY wiki is worth a look, there's loads of info there.

Why'd you pay $17.99 for a game you've already 'beaten' three times? It's a good game but not worth that much IMO.

Anyway, if you can't see the 'skip' dialogue option on the top left of the screen whenever there's dialogue, then it must only appear once you've completed the main part of the game - I have the 'skip' option, I don't remember if it was there at the beginning.

The script is fantastic, and I'd forgotten more of it (and the plot in general) than I realized since I'd played this on DS back in the day. I was perfectly happy reading it all again, personally.

If you really don't want to, I'd probably pass on the game altogether since that's one of the main highlights. The combat's still very fun, but less unique than in the DS version.
