There’s a lot of game in Hexyz Force. You can play through Cecilia’s complete tale and then go back and play an entire new plotline with Levant’s tale. Beyond the double story aspect, another big plus comes in a gameplay twist that allows your enemies to block your powerful Hexyz Charge and turn it on you. It’s a game full of fun micro-management, including the ability to make your own equipment and weapons. Graphically, Hexyz Force has an anime/manga comic book feel, which will appeal to fans of that genre. The turn-based gameplay features some powerful swords and magic, but the damage they do doesn’t result in blood -- it's just fireworks and puffs of smoke. While the game doesn’t break new ground, playing is an engrossing and sometimes fascinating experience that’s worth the price of admission.
