The presentation is just abysmal and difficult to look at at times, the gameplay gets repetitive since there aren't many special moves, and replay value is pretty much zilch. That being said, I don't regret buying Flames of Judgment. Even though it is quite obviously a below average strategy RPG there is still some fun to be had and it's hard to say no to the relatively cheap price. If you are a fan of strategy RPGs you should give this one a shot, but everyone else should probably leave it be."
