This game is a little different from the last one. There's no job system, and takes place in a completely different world. A la Final Fantasy? Perhaps. I wanted the series of the Dimesions to be something like Final Fantasy, so I kinda follow in it's foot steps.
The System in this game is rather simple than the last one. You buy your spells from shops, and then you can use them...but, you can also equip your spells. Weapons also give spells, but they aren't permanent. Anyhow, try it out.
The story is about Gran. One day he stumbles on ancient ruins in a forest while hunting. He comes across a message in the ruins, talking about "Garmos" attacking them. The person in the message says that the year is 1999...yet, the events, as far as Gran knows, did not happen that year. And the condition of the ruins does not seem like it happened recently. Gran informs some Investigators about it, and tell him to not tell a soul he has seen it. He goes home, and tells his good friend Ian, who raised him, what has happened. Later that night, Agents attack him. Somehow they knew he told someone. He kills them, and become a fugitive.
He runs to some mountain ranges, and looks at the scenery. Then he takes a look at a grave...Mater Kyle Folbergs grave. While looking at it, it mysteriously disappears. He is freaked out by it, and decided he might as well go back to Grandwell after all and see if he can just set things right. When he gets back, the city is no longer there, and is replaced by a bunch of tents. He meets the general, and is signed up in the army. He then gets a partner...someone by the name of Kyle. Then, some Royal Dragoons attack them. Kyle and Gran take them out easily. They sleep, and then wake the next morning, only to be told to hurry up and get on with their mission, which is to sneak into some Dragoon territory, and spy on them.
They go on their way, and come across a village, which seems terribly familiar to Gran. They walk around untill making their way into the bar, then finding some man attacking the bar tender. They stop him, and he asks Gran what his name is. He seems suprised by the fact that his name is Gran, and insists on going with them. They ask him what his name is, and he hesitates, then says it's "Black". Both Gran and Kyle think it's not his real name, but as long as they have something to refer him as, they're fine. After that, they wander around the village, and then find out that there's a house nearby that was burnt to the ground years ago...the parents died in the burning, and the children were abducted.
Gran becomes interested in seeing this house, and they make their way to it. As they walk in, Black makes some comment about "burning memories". This somehow causes Gran to faint, and have some sort of flash back...
***This is then the end of the Demo. More to come later.
"This is truly a great game! One of the best I've seen! I can't wait for them to finish it! This game would get at least a 9.0, if it wasn't for that whole plot thing(or lack thereof) dragging it down like a bad meatloaf."
