Illusia in Review – Does Casual Mean Oversimplified?

Action RPGs are a tricky lot to get right.  You have to have the perfect balance between RPG and action in order to appease both types of players.  On top of that you have to be careful to avoid a common feature that plagues both style of game: repetitiveness.  Forcing the genre into a side scrolling perspective adds additional burden, because you all but lose one facet of the RPG side, which is puzzle solving.  Unfortunately, ILLUSIA tends to weigh more heavily on the action side of things, and quite frankly that action is starting to get rather boring.  I’ve put at least 3-4 hours into the game, it feels like I’ve been playing for days, and I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished much.
