I also noticed:Oh reviewers... "Too much of everything" says one. "a beautiful shell with not enough to fill it" says another. So which is it?
I'll just do what I usually do and go with my instinct and that instinct tells me that I'll enjoy this game quite a lot (I played both demos).
I wanted to like Daemon X Machina, but as I played, I kept wondering how much more fun it might have been if the developers had zeroed in on some of the more enjoyable elements instead of providing so many customization options and wrapping everything in such a convoluted story.
Daemon X Machina zeroes in on its own vision and realizes it as best as it can. It is bright and energetic and filled with character, and those are the qualities you need to carry a curious, new generation of players into the fray long enough for them to find their footing in such a niche style of game.
