Review # 43 for Chaos Nyte
Them's Fightin' Words
    Journey with Claude and his friends as they seek to save a Moon Pie, battle evil, and have FUUUNNN!!

Storyline - Okay, so this game isn't gonna win any awards for story. Badly convulted, spelling errors abound, and scenes are put in that don't make any sense with the context. The writing goes from kindergarden humor about gays to a somewhat deep love story. On the other hand, it is funny. Once you start to look past the problems and just enjoy the game, some of the moments will actually have you laughing out loud. (Say it with me, "Darbon, Loooooove!") Despite people joining for little reason and usually being acted out in the most sterotyipical manner possible, (Arr, Arr, Arr! I'm a pirate!) the characters come alive, each with their own background story. Some of the scenes are truly fantastic, using features I didn't know the OHR was able to do. Though the game shoots from highs to lows in story telling at an amazing speed, it all balances out into making an entertaining, three hour game.

Gameplay - Entertaining, to say the least. The farther you get into the game, the more chances you have to go on interesting side quests, all of which yield fun and rewarding experiences. There really aren't to many, and it looks like some were cut out of the game to say time, but all of the side quests are well thought out. Towns are small and well designed, and dungeons focus more on exploring then fighting, bringing into play the problem of keeping your characters strong and still being able to afford healing herbs and new armor and weapons. While I would of enjoyed more battles, the game makes the adventures enjoyable with some low level puzzles. The plot also connects well with the gameplay, and for the most part, the game never seems rushed.

Graphics - Hmm...we move into a grey zone here. The graphics are decent for areas, horrible for others, and then move right into amazing. The fight scene with Darbon isn't something your likely to forget anytime soon. The end of the demo takes a interesting twist, with a complete revamp in the graphics, although its hard to tell if this a good thing ot not, since the walk-abouts still aren't all that great. With some extra time, I'm sure this area of the game could be improved a lot, though as they are right now, still aren't all that bad.

Music - All ripped, mostly from Suidoken 2. It fits well well, but oddly, some scenes seem to bear resembalence to Suikoden 2, as if they were inspired by the music.

I would like to point that my grading may seem a little harsh when compared to some other peoples', but unlike them, I actually finished the demos instead of giving up when I run into a hard boss. I left no stone unturned in the demo, and I found that it was good. I judge my scores as fair, and I'd like to thank Sephy for turning out such a wonderful game.
Final Scores
Graphics: 6/10.0
Just a bit above decent.
Storyline: 7.5/10.0
Ignore the real plot, and focus on all the fun the characters have in getting there.
Gameplay: 9/10.0
Yes, you'll enjoy it.
Music: 5.5/10.0
It fits, but its all ripped from popular games, and really doesn't capture the games feel.
Overall Grade: B+
Final Thoughts
    Enjoyable to the end, download this one and spend an afternoon in the world of Moon Pie.
