Default Eternal Legacy, can it get any worst?

Finally bought myself to finish Eternal Legacy (purchased on launch day), just when I thought things coudldn't possibly get worst, I was presented with a 15 second ending that not only has nothing to show, but it is the first time in a RPG in history that has 0 (ZERO, meaning not a single one) line of dialogue / text.

I wish I have something to give away as a spoiler, but apparently there's absolutely nothing. I feel relieved to finally have deleted the game.

"so many shits"? lol

Anyway, the game has an average rating of 4.5/5 stars, so it can't be that bad.

I'm going to try and give my opinion on eternal legacy:
it's ok! Sure, it's by no means perfect- annoying equip system, horrible voice acting, slow progressing and pretty cliche story and a low difficulty level

but Im having a pretty good time. It has a nice feel to it, and I've had fun playing through for some reason or another. Maybe it has something to do with the fact it's the first turn based RPG that I haven't found to get too difficult an hour in? (oh, rimelands also pwned)

This games better than chaos rings. No idea what you're talking about. If it was terrible, you wouldn't have played it until the end. More like 'can it get any worse' than people who can't even take the time to get the title of their threads right. Qft.

@backtothis
was chaos rings more difficult than this? If so, by how much?
Cus I generally suck at Turn based RPGs- steampirates broke me completely for example.

Honestly I'd say it's about the same. The combat is less complex actually in chaos rings. The storyline only lasts 4-5 hours though. Then you're supposed to replay it 3 more times with different characters to unlock the final boss. It's a chore in my opinion.

For excellent tbrpgs try ash or crimson gem saga. They are pretty difficult at times, but they're truly very fun to play. Or you can replay rimelands lol..

Haha, that's because SteamPirates is ridiculously difficult. I've played tons of RPG's over the years, and I couldn't help but find myself running low on HP left and right.

Chaos Rings is so much more noob friendly. It basically lets you set the difficulty by allowing you to pick what level range the monsters will be whenever you start a new dungeon. It's a great way to let you challenge yourself without it being too difficult.

You have got to be kidding me. Better than Chaos Rings? That is exactly the kind of response Gameloft wants. The only reason that got me to actually finishing the game was for no other reason than to see if it actually gets better considering that I did paid $7 for it. But man was I wrong. The only thing I was glad the whole time was that the game ended on probably the 4th hour. Thank god it was short as if it was any longer I wouldn't be able to stand it.

Chaos Rings is a Chore? No wonder since you never played it. You can turn off all the battles in CR, if you wanted to. You can even set your own difficulty aside from the last bosses (there will be a few surprises waiting at the end, just to make sure your work gets paid off).

THE ENTIRE ETERNAL LEGACY GAME IS A CHORE. Sword Rush, Sword Rush, Sword Rush, Ultimate, another member spamming their most powerful attack, and another Mass Heal + Large Mana Potion. This is Everything you do in this game. The whole point of having a 3rd party member is entirely useless, as they all function exactly the same.

If you want to read about my impressions and comparisons for EL to Chaos Rings, go see Eternal Legacy's main thread.

Now that I have finished the game, I can finally conclude that Eternal Legacy is borderline trash coming from Gameloft. It is really as if they did all the work JUST to get a decent first impression. They got the screenshots right. They got the character models looking up to date. They copied some design cues here and there. It looks like a decent game from the outside, but for those of us who played more would find it almost a disgrace to the whole genre. I would go as far as to say even picking up FF1 or FF2 would be a better investment than this trash (and those games at $8.99 no less). But there are better titles out there, like Chaos Rings, and Crimson Gem Saga, if you haven't gotten those already.

Initially I was under the impression that investing $7 to support Gameloft for a FF type game was a good idea; turns out it had become quite the opposite. Everyone should know about just how terrible this game really is, and we need to stop supporting games like this in the future. Don't buy this game. Don't support RPGs don't don't even have an ending.
