I found the PEOPS soft driver to be a bit too soft and blurry, but this plugin with soft enabled still added some softness but not as much blurriness, if that makes sense. :p

Anyway, this is a cutesy game... I've heard a lot of mixed reviews but I'm enjoying it so far. The songs have a Disney feel to them, being kinda sappy but I still think they're very cute. My only complaint is that all the dungeons I've encountered so far (8 hrs into the game) use the same frames, only recolored. Still, this is an enjoyable game and a nice change from RPGs with mostly serious storylines.

Oh and the game has some interesting special attacks... sugar candy, flan, cake, and pancake. Mmm, giant pancakes...

Those special attacks are awesome (makes me hungry ;) ), and the game has a very cute look to it too.

HEART!!!!

By your powers combined... I AM CAPTAIN PLANET!!!

Seriously though, Rhapsody's kickass. If for nothing more than the fact that you can attack your enemies with candy.

Fixed. ;)

(The show was actually released by the EPA during the 90s to try and get more people to recycle and do things to help the environment, as as well as "inform" children about these problems. The show got abysmal ratings in America, most probably because the American economy was still upturned at the time. It didn't begin downturn until Bush was elected in 2000. Other possible reasons for the show's poor ratings were poor writing, poor animation, annoying voice actors, badly stereotyped characters from different cultures, and annoying music.)

I know it's Captain Planet, I saw that show too (both Chinese and English version :lol: ) But what does that have to do with attacking your enemies with sweets oO

I don't like Rhapsody. Ok, the graphics are good, but the game has sooo many flaws. This game is not your everyday RPG. The characters sing on some parts of the game, like it was from a musical! (The Sound of Music comes to mind) But these musics are too damn boring!! Another big flaw is that the game is tooooo short and easy. I've beaten it on the hardest difficulty in 10 hours, and I didn't had to level up at all!
But at least this game has some funny parts. Thats the only reason I didn't throw my game at the garbage!

I think the very fact that the game has singing in it tells you something about its quality (or it should). :p

It is a little bit corny and I think I'm near the end (about 8 hrs), but it's still entertaining. Rhapsody has a feel like you're in an anime, with the whacky dialogue and characters. It's a nice change from dramatic, serious RPGs :D
