When I played the demo in the Collector's Edition version, I was skeptical that the plot would thicken afterwards. I needed another game for a BOGO sale, and since I had already purchased most of the games this month, I decided to take a chance on A Lover's Pledge, after all, many of the games in this series are pretty decent. Well, I'm sorry to report, that after several attempts to finish this game, I simply can't do it!

At first glance, the graphics appear to be stellar, but if you really pay attention to the detail, there isn't any detail. The buildings are plain Jane and basic, the decorations, shrubbery, plants and trees lack definition , the statues, the sky, the rooms, have no texture or intricate patterns to give them depth. A bell looks the same as a vase both in and out of my inventory. The objects within the HOP's are at times difficult to find, not because they are well hidden, but because it's hard to tell the difference between a scoop and a sickle, they are cartoonish looking and blurry.

The biggest problem however, isn't with blah looking graphics, the problem is with the plot. Actually, I should say the lack of a plot, because this storyline is stretch far too thin. This is just another example of how 5 meaningless chapters, are far worse than 3 epic chapters. I kept forgetting what the story was about, and how this character related to that character, which is bad, really bad when playing a game that doesn't allow you to hit a rewind button! I gave up, perhaps too soon, but my intuitions say probably not.
