|Description / Review
Atlus is probably one of the weirdest companies in the Gaming industry. Over the last few years, they have quietly released some of the most inspiring and fan-loved Role-Playing Games ever to be seen. Kartia is no different.
The game's US namesake refers to the magical paper that creates cards fighters use in battle. Branching out from the 5 elements, users can combine Kartia cards into various items. For example, a Fire Kartia combined with a Weapon Kartia will create a Flame based sword. An entire sub-system of card combining and trading is buried within the disc, and fans of experimenting will get a huge kick out of this item-based mischief making.
In terms of game play, we have a turn based, grid style strategy RPG. You choose between two characters and follow their storyline for over 30 hours of goodness.
Kartia was never released as a Greatest Hits.
Variations / Misprints
The original Kartia was released as a Blockbuster exclusive rental. This version did not have the foil stamping that forms the title on the cover. This variation is shown below.
