It's (of course) different compared to what rumichan
went through as Milla in the beginning. I had a boss encounter with Agria (where I have to lose) that Rumi didn't have, and then had the boss encounter he had, right after. I uh... totally forgot to magic lens that first boss fight. I hope that encounter didn't count towards the monster/boss book completion. Are they gonna make us play through it twice to be able to complete the monster book? Y'know, scan Milla-only encounters and Jude-only encounters on different play throughs (and carrying over your book data)? Because that'd be really gay. I have a lot of other games to play. Also, I've never back stepped so much in a Tales game before. This new counter assault mechanic or whatever makes back stepping fun. (Was this in Graces F
? I still haven't played that, so this is new to me if it was in it.) Basically, your character does a Wesker-like teleport (lol) behind an enemy if you time the back step right as you're being attacked. And then boom boom boom, free hits. Even when you and a spellcaster's fireball are far away from the caster, you can back step the fireball and appear right behind the spell caster.
Anyway, I like Jude. I'm sure I'll like Alvin more, but Jude hasn't displayed any qualities I've hated with past main male Tales leads so far.
