Great game with a few flaws.

WARNING: Spoilers are present in this review/feedback (battle-tactics, attacks used, stats...). Read at your own risk. Also, 700+ word review.

Overall (8/10):

This is an excellent game, and a lot of heart and soul went into it. The paper thin storyline serves its purpose as a way to deliver humor. There are some problems with it that don't jive well with me. Any talks about difficulty will be from the viewpoint of Epic. I will delve further into this in the "Gameplay" section.

This game merits at least as something to buy on the X-Box Live Arcade or something like that (on Epic difficulty, this comes out to about a 13-15 hour game, if you include all the time you spend loading from losing the later boss fights). I did not use the walkthrough that was offered.

Graphics (9/10):

This game is extraordinarily beautiful. The spell effects are pretty, and even serve as a way to deliver humor (e.g. P2/Natalie's chest). The battle menu is faithful to any RPG game. The User Interface is intuitive and easy to use.

Music (8/10):

The early music was really hit and miss, but as the game went on, it really improved and got more "epic." Though I did enjoy the repeats (or even re-orchestrations?) of the music from earlier games.

Last boss music was INSANELY awesome. Thank your music guy for such an exceptional track, really.

Controls (5/10):

One of the more annoying things with this game. The "best" part about the controls was using the arrow keys, space bar, and M to access the menu and such. I would have enjoyed the ability to use my arrow keys and space bar or whatever to navigate the menus as well.

In general, for RPG games, it is preferable to be able to use your keyboard rather than point and click at everything. 5/10 for the ability to at least do most "Overworld" actions with the keyboard. This merits a separation from "Gameplay."

Gameplay (8/10):

Okay, this is the big thing. Epic Difficulty was AWESOME (complaining that it was too hard would be idiotic, since there ARE lower difficulties available...). The difficulty in this game was not "stupid hard" - when you lost, you knew why you lost. Or at least had a feeling it was your fault, and that it was correctable. With the customizable armor and weapon pieces, you could exploit the weaknesses of your enemies as well as minimize the enemy's attacks (other words: good metagame).

Now, what lowered this score was a few things. Among them are instant death attacks (emphasis on INSTANT... 3 turn you die counters are not a problem). Not something that kills you in one shot if you forgot to put up Barrier or if your resistance to something sucked, or if your defense was low or something. The Grim Reaper coming up and owning you is never ever fun for me, and many RPG players. IT SHOULD BE NOTED that there are a multitude of ways to get around these attacks, and as such, this was not so bad.

Another thing I'm going to complain about are the stats themselves. It's not always entirely clear what "Magic Attack" means. Okay, yes, Magic Attack is important for P2/Natalie and her spells, but it was confusing as to what Magic Attack and regular attack applied to for P1/Matt and P3/Lance's attacks. I operated under the assumption that "Special" meant M-Attack applied and "Bushido/Shoot" meant P-Attack applied, but it wasn't clear. I saw the "***% element" for some attacks, but again, I wasn't sure if M-Attack applied to that part of the attack or not.

Oh yeah, the penultimate boss (chimera/dragon boss) was harder than Akron (the last boss). Those 3 dragon heads gave me a lot more trouble than the last boss himself. Which was kind of a letdown given the build-up to this point and the EPIC music in the final area and boss. I made 3 attempts on the final boss, and probably up to 10 attempts on the penultimate 3-headed chimera boss. That may be due to me constantly fiddling around with my resistance gear and M-Def gear to find an appropriate combination, as well as execution in the boss fight itself.

The Akron encounter was still sufficiently epic.

Superior game, keep it up Matt.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

You need to make your next game for a console, this game is what Final Fantasy should be like now instead of all the crap Square Enix has done to the genre. Its great to look at in all conceivable ways, a lot of great references (bonus for Konata, and the quote "I am Error"). The battle mechanics are very well balanced in each of the difficulties. I even love that you used some abilities on specific enemies that actually required you to think about how to handle it rather than each boss or enemy being repetitive which would not have been surprising. Can not wait for the next installment to see if it can go even beyond this. My suggestion is create a story that will give an even greater sense of immersion. New characters could even be an interesting stretch to this with the capability of switching them around even in battle which would easily widen the possibilities of strategies to use on each boss and even mobs.
