As I was searching for new music to listen to,
and by new I mean old songs I haven’t heard in a while, I remembered a game I hadn’t played in a while that had a descent soundtrack to it. So I started to search for it online. Now something you may not know about me is that I’ve played a lot yet not so many games in my life thus far. Of course, with my brilliant memory I found that game called Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana. However, this post isn’t about that game. It’s about GrimGrimoire.
After I found Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana’s soundtrack it reminded me of another game I played, GrimGrimoire. (Before I start on that game, I’d like to note that AI:EM, is also good game too, but G-G’s just gonna steal the spotlight today.) These in particular are slighty different from the normal Role Playing Games [RPG(s)] I normally play. Eh, my brother got them cause he was tired of waiting for the next Final Fantasy game to come out. Still he also choose them because he had heard these games were really good. And yeah they are, especially GrimGrimoire.
When I first got to play the game back in 2007, I was in the state where I could go through most any game pretty quick. However, this game in particular isn’t long at all or so I thought. Nah, it isn’t but there’s a twist with this game. The next part is a spoiler so… **SPOILER ALERT**
Lillet Blan is a young magician admitted to a prestigious magic school, the Tower of Silver Star. Though she attends normal classes for the first four days and meets the various professors and students, on the fifth day Lillet awakens to learn that everyone in the tower is dead. Before she is killed as well, she is suddenly propelled back in time to her first night at school. Lillet then proceeds to relive the five days before the tragedy over and over again, retaining the knowledge of magic she learns in those five days and desperately trying to solve the mystery to prevent the same events (or worse) from taking place on the fifth day. Over the course of the plot, Lillet discovers dark secrets about her classmates, teachers, and even the academy itself, all of which will lead her to the truth.
It’s a great real time strategy game that’s unique and different compared to all the games that were also on the PS2. Even if you get bored because of the literally long and drawn out battles the story is enough for you to stay through until the end. I’d recommend it to anyone… who’s looking for a strong story and different game play. I was going to talk more about this game. But now I feel it’s already too drawn out. Later?
