While the modern setting is cool, I found it to have one of the most boring battle systems in RPG history. I spent about five hours with the game and in that whole span I never got another party member. Every single battle went something like:
Bash - Bash - Bash - PSI Power - Bash - Bash - Bash - PSI Power (now I'm out of PP because you're not given very much at all) - Bash - Bash - Bash - Bash - Bash - Win.
I don't know, I really like parts of the game, but I loathe the battle system.
Funny, I was excited about this game before it came out. I bought it at release . . . I think that Nintendo Power had a $10 off coupon . . . so maybe it was $50ish. Anyway, I hated this game . . . thought the concept and art was cool but couldn't stand to play it. I sold it off for $40 (I think it was in 1997) just before Ebay came into being . . . A mint and complete copy. Damn I want that back.
