I think this is one of your best games ever! There are so many of these games, it's hard to tell them apart. What I found weird was how I managed to perform these color moves and I wasn't even pressing different buttons! That is, of course, probably the coolest thing about this. It's even hard to tell who is your ally. Luckily, you can't hurt your ally.
I really am in fact getting into these characters more. The cutscenes aren't that bad. I think it's really cool how you keep that intro where you cause the intro yourself. The animation is as great as ever. It's great to just press buttons and let the game play itself.
