GamesRadar: Infinite Undiscovery Review

Taken as a whole, Infinite Undiscovery's a game with a bit of an identity crisis. When it's acting like a run-of-the-mill JRPG, it feels clichéd, but reasonably enjoyable. When it tries to be innovative, however, its unsatisfying combat, superfluous subsystems and wasted ensemble cast make the whole experience feel half-hearted. Like its hero Capell, the game's caught between sticking to what it knows and the temptation to go out and be a real revolutionary. Unfortunately, Infinite Undiscovery never really figures itself out, leaving it an inconsistent game that's awkward and shallow, but still intriguing. Just like its nonsensical name.

You'll love:
- Great art style overall
- Intriguing story and universe
- Main character and his squeeze are actually likable

You'll hate:
- Choppy, unfun combat
- Trying to block any attack and inevitably failing
- Uneven graphics

Still probably get this game. But SE is a has been, they need to stick to the PS2 because they can't develope for sh*t on next-gen systems. I'm hearing about framerate problems and that is just unforgivable as the gen moves on to it's third year.

Square/Tri-Ace you are just about dead to me.

DarK-SilV3707d ago

I don't think the problem with the SE or Tri-Ace,
may be it has something to do with xbox360

Lost_My_600_Dollar3707d ago (Edited 3707d ago )

unfortunately, there is only one JRPG game on the PS3 (Disgaea 3) which seems like PS2 port so I don't think the xbox360 is the problem or the ps3

"because they can't develope for sh*t on next-gen systems. I'm hearing about framerate problems and that is just unforgivable as the gen moves on to it's third year."

so far, the only console square has released a game on this gen was on the 360.....what does that say?

PirateThom3707d ago

Disgaea isn't made by Tri-ace or Square Enix though.

Kyur4ThePain3707d ago

Who knows. Maybe developers are just at a point where they need more powerful hardware. 720?

La Chance3707d ago (Edited 3707d ago )

I cant belive its getting 7/10's everywhere.
It doesnt look like the best jrpg in the world but it looked pretty solid to me.

I'll still be getting it anyway.7/10 isnt that bad but I was expecting more.Moreover its got a solid stroy and god art design, probaably the most important things for me in a jrpg.

Anyway , its a pity ToV isnt coming out this year in EU since it looks like the better game out of the two.

DarK-SilV3707d ago (Edited 3707d ago )

but LOOK at oblivion,GTA4,Mass effect and a lot of other games,most of these games have a problems on xbox360,while PS3 you don't see that many problems,I think Xox360 cant handle games with too much open ground or should I say open world.

GiantEnemyCrab3707d ago

Stop blaiming the hardware. I guess we will see when Fable 2 and Fallout 3 come out in the next few months. I think those games will show just how outdated JRPG's and SE and Tri-Ace are.

Still I'd rather have several average JRPG's than just one that looks like it belongs on the PS1.

InfiniteUnfloppery3707d ago

I agree with Dark,the problems are with the hardware

Lost_My_600_Dollar3707d ago (Edited 3707d ago )

@Lost My 600 Dollar I swear to god this is not me,I mean who is stupid enough to put the same avatar and agree with himself,when I saw his avatar I knew people would say that.

here we go again,I guess Nasim did so much damage that people would blame others being Nasim,
Nasim the legend that does not die

InfiniteUnfloppery3707d ago

Who is this Nasim fellow you speak of

Homicide3707d ago

And that one that looks like a PSone game is outscoring most of your JRPGs on the 360. Sad stuff....

Rick Astley3707d ago (Edited 3707d ago )

They should just rename themselves to Tri-Flop in my opinion. Star Ocean 3 was terrible too.

Disgaea 3 for the win, and it wasn't even as hyped! :D

KillaManiac3706d ago

Don't throw Disgaea 3 into this....Disgaea is getting 8-8.5s

Disgaea is 50-28937497234 hour game...
IU is a 20 hour story and according to IGN video...some side quest which have no point or fun in doing.

Its easy....if you have a Tales of Vesp. If you have PS3, buy Disgaea 3!

long time no see heyheyhey .
yes I have it as me avatar,I was looking forward for the game but it flopped,So what should I do now, bash it since xbots hyped it too much.

Homicide3707d ago

I was looking forward to this game as well. What a disappointment.

InfiniteUnfloppery3707d ago

Me too,I won't be getting this game now that it flopped

KBDuB3706d ago (Edited 3706d ago )

Lol. Wow. You are AN idiot! Lol.

"so much for the 3fixme KING Of RPG," It still has the most RPG games on either system. Both Wrpgs and Jrpgs.

"the game is a FLop" You consider a 7/10 and a B to be a flop? Wow. Then you must not play very much games.. Especially if you only own a PS3.

"I was looking forward for the game but it flopped," aha. Already calling it a flop? Okay.. so how old are you? Eight(8).. Nine(9)?

AngryXbot3706d ago

Why am I not surprised?

Hahaha why so angry bots?

Didnt people say 2008 was gonna suck for the 360 with absolutely nothing on it worth playing and owning?

Guess what, people werent lying!

InfiniteUnfloppery3707d ago

Pew Pew Pew!shooting down the flopz!

juuken3707d ago (Edited 3707d ago )

And I was looking forward to this game.
*pats PS3* White Knight Chronicles should be awesome.

Lol, @ GiantEnemyCrab cussing at Square. You guys certainly weren't cussing when they announced FFXIII for the 360.
