As much as I like this game the blur filter they are using is horrible, why go HD and then make it pointless with blurring it out, I don't understand :S

shame about the daft dialog during combat.. they could atleast keep thinks in the moment and use it to add intensity to comabat.. they might as well be talking about the weather with the dialog thats in there at the moment

Heh I was thinking about that too, hopefully we have an option to turn it off.

On an hdtv the characters standout and don't look blurred. It's a nice contrast with the environments.

The characters don't look blurred to me. What does look blurred are the backgrounds and other parts of the environment, but the characters pop more to me.

Perhaps, blurred in comparison to how things were handled in Eternal Sonata, but definitely not blurry to the point that they destroy what is otherwise a great looking game. If I watch a video on my pc then yea I would agree that all of it looks blurred, but it definitely doesn't come across that way on my hdtv.

It's probably because my backlight and contrast are maxed out and I have my color settings to cool. The characters definitely don't seem blurred on my set.

Well I 'm not guna argue over it, doesn't matter if I watch the videos or play the demo it looks blurry and yes in comparison to ES.

I know exactly what it is though if you check other Team Symphonia games they have this blur to them, they seem to like it for some reason :S

I think Ubisoft are publishing the European version, the chances of the Us version being region free are extremely small,

I tried the demo. I couldn't sit through it, the dialogue is painfully bad.
Commented on 2008-07-17 22:09:18
I love the whole blur, The dialogue in english is painful! But I hope they allow Japanese voices and english subtitles. Even as a download like Naruto - Rise of a Ninja.

It's soft focus, not blur. I think this looks even better than Eternal Sonata because there seem to be more keyframes (therefore better animation) and things like cloth and hair move a lot better.

Yes animation is much better, but the graphical looks isn't anywhere close to ES sadly, looks like you can;t have both.

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The success of the 360 had *a lot* to do with it being the best multiplatform console. There may be a diminishing returns thing there though... we'll see. (2 Hours ago)

    scoobs0688 Scorpio will be nice and all, but if you don't have the software then ultimately nobody will care outside the hardcore who are buying it regardless. (2 Hours ago)
