Description: A typical JRPG with a strong emphasis on environmental puzzles.
Conveniences: An in-game encyclopedia is constantly referenced in conversations via underlined words. When tapped, these links open up entries in the top of the screen of the DS while leaving the action in the bottom largely uninterrupted.
Annoyances: Unskipable verbal diarrhea that’s only exasperated by animating emoticons.
Standouts: Fantastic variety and level design in numerous locations that rely on magic for puzzle-solving.
