Decent game, poor execution

I think the "Is it good?" section nailed it on the head. This game definitely relies on nostalgia factor and preys on the fiscally reckless. As someone who has spent months on the game, I can tell you that "free-to-play" is a totally viable option, but to achieve a high PvP status will take a very, very long time. If you don't care about PvP, then "free-to-play" is still a very viable option if you're careful. This game has many, many traps that trick new players into spending. It's called a "gacha" game for a reason. Gotcha! One of the biggest insults this game has to offer is the "Pay 10 dollars a day for 5 days to unlock a super bonus!" that is available for every character event. The "super bonus" you get at the end is 50 character shards that are used to unlock characters . An event character requires 150 character shards to unlock. Just put that into perspective: you spent $50 just to unlock 1/3 of a character. Definitely have a payment password if your child is playing this. A couple of other issues are the bugs, lack of content, and lack of support from Sega. I could write a whole essay on these problems, but the most glaring problem really is the predatory in-game purchases. It's a real shame because I love the Fist of the North Star series. Like anything popular, you can expect companies both large and small to try and cash in on the fever. I very rarely leave reviews on anything, but I feel like people really need to watch out for this game. Ultimately, it feels like just another lazy cash grab.
