I really wanted to like Avalon Code DS. Recording information in the Book of Prophecy was a unique way of mixing the storyline and combat into an interesting, if a little morbid, mechanic. Yet as the game progressed any deep meaning Avalon Code could have inspired was drained by frustration and unnecessary complexity.
Though I love RPGs more than any other genre of videogames its reliance, especially from Japanese developers, to stick to familiar scenarios and clich's can drain even my enthusiasm after a while. So when I found Avalon Code offering a few unique twists with its combat system I was hopeful this would be a very different and more soulful RPG experience.
