I can't believe I got a switch just to play this game and I'm not regretting it one bit.
I'm not an rpg expert but I think OPT feels like FF game from the snes era. The combat, the bosses,the graphics reminds me of FFVI. I feel the graphics look neat in a monitor HDTV not so much on your switch screen I'd say it looks like any other game. The 3D effect really shines on the big screen.
At the beginning doesn't really matter which character you choose eventually you'll meet the others characters fairly quickly but if you want to start with a strong character choose olberic, he's a fucking beast.
So a few things I noticed I don’t know if all the switch games are like this or it was a design decision with this game. I see most of the game doesn't have much voice dialogue going on. You can't talk with all the towns people either. I don't see this as a bad thing though since you can interact with the same people in different ways thanks to the path mechanic which every character has.
I'm in olberic's chapter right now so far I don't see their own individual stories connecting in anyway because when you meet a new character and play their story it's like the other characters don't exist. I hope there's a change later otherwise it's going to feel kind of linear.
