DHGF: Project X Zone is more than a piece of fan service for Sega, Namco Bandai and Capcom fans. It’s also an exceptionally well done tactical RPG that eschews the usual battle system for this genre with one that is more timing based. The end result is a really fun game where you have to pay far more attention to every little combat nuance than you would in most RPGs. Think more Shadow Hearts than Final Fantasy. The story is little more than window dressing for the battles or excuses to have John McClaine, Chun-Li and Morrigan taking on Ayame from Sakura Taisen, or Frank West doing battle against Lord Raptor. The game’s soundtrack is simply amazing, as it takes classics tracks from all the games featured in this title, and the graphics are definitely improved over its DS and PS2 predecessors. The end result is an odd but charming game that is hard to put down. Combat may take a while to get used to, but once you do, you’ll wonder why more RPGs don’t play like this. A great job all-around.
