Anybody Play Rent-A-Hero?

I just watched a nice video clip of the upcoming XBox port.

I was wondering if anybody has played much of the original DC game.

Is the language barrier a problem at all?

How's the actual gameplay/controls?

Reviews in my GMR mag say its a bad port because of its outdated graphics. They said it should stay in japan where they like strange games like this. But, i'm glad there bringing it over. I would like to play it.

From the looks of it, the gameplay looks quite fun

The graphics aren't the greatest -- even for the DC, but as we all know, graphics don't make the game

Well, for what its worth, the DC import got an 8.4 from IGN.
well that review said it might be pretty hard to figure out if you don't know Japanese.

So I'm not thinking it's gonna be worth picking up the DC version

I'll just wait til someday I play the XBox version

That game looks humerous, worth a rent (*sigh*, pun NOT intended) or maybe even a pickup from a bargain bin... I remember seeing this on a Japanese best selling list long ago and looked up a few reviews for this game.

I remember a game I wanted to try was some roomate game for the dc, it was another crazy Japanese game, you pretty much just watch a guy live his life in his apartment and can only do little things like read his diary and move stuff around - you can make his day miserable by misplacing all the things in his apartment :lol:

How can that not be a great game?
