5 Dissidia: Final Fantasy Demo PreviewKalphaS | 04/08/2009 | See all KalphaS's reviews (3)I'm basing my opinion on the demo that is available on the american PS Store. The demo generously offered five characters to chose from, 4 heroes and 1 villain, each of them feel different to control during gameplay which i like alot since it gives every character distinct strengths and weaknesses.I was concerned about the battle system for this particular game of the Final Fantasy franchise but i was quickly surprised at how great it is and its easy to pick up too. It's fast paced and responsive, you feel in complete control at all times. The moves that you can pull off with simple button inputs are superb and visceral. The basic premise of the gameplay has two elements, the first is in order to deal greater damage to your opponent you can steal your opponent's bravery (attack strength) but these bravery attacks don't take any of the enemy's HP away. When you have stolen most if not all your opponent's bravery then you can deal HP damage equivalent to your newly boosted bravery! Sounds complicated at first but it's really simple. I really like these gameplay elements as it adds a nice layer of strategy to your fights, i've had some fights that were over in 5 minutes and some that turned into an epic dual for 20 minutes!Another shocker for me was the sheer amount of graphical detail in this game. Its impressive to see that Square Enix have worked towards really high quality graphics, in my opinion they're the best graphics for a PSP game i've seen to date. The characters are full of life and the environments in which you fight in are big and spacious.The sound effects are awesome too especially since they give every sword swipe and collision a nice loud rumble! The voice overs for the characters too are all present, especially for fan favourites Cloud and Sephiroth!Overall i'm very pleased with what i've played of it upto now and i'll definitely be getting this come September 4th.
