The Completionist Edit
Jirard notes that despite how weird the story sounds, its execution and originality make it work. The music and visuals are also well-received, especially for being a PlayStation 2 game. He also loves the voice acting. He finds the song in the intro to be very odd, though.
Though Jirard finds the game very fun in almost every aspect, he expresses confusion over the number of games that have spawned from the series.
