Excellent Strategy RPG

This is a full-blown strategy RPG. It has everything with the exception of voice acting. The storyline is a bit hard to follow at times, especially since the story may be progressed by the players' choosing. I've always wanted a more mobile SRPG to play that wasn't terrible or too short, and this is the only one I found and it's great. I've played it for over 40 hours now and I must be somewhere in the middle of the game or 2/3 of the way. It's still entertaining and the battle system is what keeps this game interesting and fun for me. I really hope that they will bring Blazing Souls to the Windows Store soon too. It would be a tragedy for a whole genre of tablet users to not have these stellar games to play on the Windows tablets or phones.

Not the best in the series, but still a great game

This is an excellent purchase for any fans of tactical / strategy games as well as fans of JRPGs. While it isn't the best in the series, the game has a massive breadth of gameplay and tactical options and an actual story to go along with it. The UI could be a little more friendly, but it is only a minor problem. If you're looking for a "mobile experience" consisting of mindless clicking, this is not for you. However, if you're looking for a true quality game, this should be right up your alley.

Great tactics game play, but pricey.

Great game play like final fantasy tactics. The controls are a little strange at first, but you get used to it. The storyline is confusing, but I could care less. I know this game is just ported over, but I wish the graphics were a little better to justify the price.

Not worth $16

This game is very similar to Final Fantasy Tactics in gameplay -- the battles are fun. The touch screen controls worked well, although menu selections are not as intuitive as the should be and it often isn't clear what different commands do. Part of this is a translation problem. Dialogue is tediously boring, and the story is both stupid and confusing. The bottom line is that this would be an excellent game for $5 -- but $16 is laughable. Wait until the price drops.

Don't buy it.

The controls are terrible. This is a port from a console so it seems. Everything is used or accessed from the dpad except the escape menu. I am a big fan of jrpgs, but for $15, no way. Its a strategy rpg like ogre tactics and wild arms so don't expect any great level grinding either. If it was $5 or lower, it would maybe be a 4 out of 5.

Great game. I believe most of the bugs have been worked out. Best to use controller. More games like this please.

Spectral Souls

Good game, but It's pricey and crashes a lot on my Surface Rt.

First "Real" game for Win 8

Please do not judge this game based on previous reviews. The controls for this game are absolutely fine! I went out and grabbed a wired Xbox controller and I don't even use it. The touch controls are, in my opinion, better than the Xbox controller controls. This is a classic tactics style JRPG and it is very deep. I picked this game up having never played any version of it before, and I am so glad I did. The sheer level of party and weapon combinations is amazing. Expect 150-250 hours of play.

Great game!

This game is total self-indulgence for Japanese R.P.G fans! If you like Final Fantasy Tactics then you will love Spectral Souls. The controls are fine, on a touch screen device, and if you are on a non touch device you can map the controls to your keyboard, or controller. Works perfect.
