WorthPlaying: Sands of Destruction Review

WorthPlaying writes: "It's been clear for a while now that the JRPG genre has been growing rather stale. With Western titles like Mass Effect and Alpha Protocol doing away with turn-based combat in favor of a more action-oriented focus, the days of swords, sorcery and selecting skills from menus seem to be waning. While a well-executed traditional RPG can still be a lot of fun, it really needs to bring something new to the table to flavor the experience and prevent boredom and burnout. Sadly, Sands of Destruction falls well short in that respect, instead presenting an average JRPG that you'll likely forget about immediately after shutting down your DS." (Nintendo DS, Sands of Destruction) 6.7/10

6.7? I say 6.8. They just robbed this game hard.
