I just downloaded (from Impulse) Academagia yesterday (Feb 3, 2011). I will say the game has a great amusement factor. The quests seem well written from what I have seen. I am using the DLC 5 I believe. However, there are some issues that should be considered.
1 - The legendary items given from the background choices are listed as having a letter telling you about the item, however, this is NOT in game. I have started about 12 different games to check out all the nifty items & have yet to see the first item I did not have run a Trial & Error action to identify.
2 - Half of those legendary items do not work either.
3 - "Time Management" (the re-load cycle). Consider adding a script or something the player can opt to activate. Have it give an increased chance of success. Let's face the facts here, we all play games for amusement; be it challenge, entertainment, etc. I do not mind doing a few reloads, but get real, after the 50th reload of the SAME day, the fun is ZERO & frustration is 200% after you kill 6 hours trying to get that 1 success. Kind of makes me want to rip the game from my hard drive & post reviews against it.
4 - Luck as a useful attribute would be nice also. I will admit, roughly 95% of the games/ RPGs I have seen that use a "Luck" skill/ stat, the skill is garbage.
That is all I have for now. Looking forward to seeing the coming improvements.
