Maybe a third-person stop-and-pop action game? Or maybe it's a God of War clone with crazy robots from the future? No, it's none of those. Instead Hexyz Force is (surprise, surprise), a traditional Japanese role-playing game. But don't tune out so fast, because this adventure game has a few special tricks up its sleeve."
