Worth the buck so far. Heck the menu / options screen alone showed more polish than over half of the jrpgs I have seen on i devices. It may be a port, but the controls are done well, it is visually fluid and the speed isn't even turned up all the way. The jumping effect is kind of cool, your character leaves a visual trail of himself while jumping. Attack animations are solid looking. Menu is very in depth but easier to navigate then say, Zenonia. Translation doesn't appear to be off at all. The controls appear to be small in the screen shots but there is a option to increase the keypad size in the options.
I am actually impressed. I have only had a few seconds to mess with it. But there appears to be a great deal of info to digest and variations of play style, judging from the menu. It looks like there are different skill trees and if I am understanding things right, different souls do different things as well. The story is very vague and I am not sure if the title implies that this is a sequel. But it leaves a lot of interpretation and mystery in the beginning. Its kind of like playing a manga storyline so far.
Anyways.... I haven't touched it much, but I am feeling pretty safe in saying that this is worth the buck it cost at the moment. And if the network play options work like they say, this one will have some legs. Its jumping out at me more than the Hybrids did and (which it is more similar too) Maple Story.
Do not get if you do not have WIFI or 3G. The game requires a network synch to begin playing. It only takes it once, but still required.
*edit the first quest has you going out and collecting iron from a mineral node. It appears that there is crafting in this game as well.
I was just messing with the combat originally... I am definitely feeling safer in vouching for this already.
