Enter the year 2077 and become Seven, the newest addition to Phantom Alpha, a secret team who operates under the enigmatic government organization known as P.H.A.N.T.A.S.M.
After joining, you find yourself befriending the other rookie on the team, an incredibly skilled youth known to you only as Zero. As you meet the other members, you realize that despite being a team, they all vary drastically in personality, background, talent and ability.
Regardless of your differences, Phantom Alpha diligently completes missions alongside each other. But together, you soon discover that on the other side of the radiant world of light, lies an equally dark world of shadow.
Everything to this game has been updated in terms of art and assets for the GUI system and it looks beautiful! All the character have a futuristic look to them that go well with the setting of the game — they are all dangerous but they are all hiding something even more, just like the wonderful city that they live in. Olympia City is as gorgeous as ever, but it is great to see more areas that will be important to the story. Aeon Dream Studios is putting everything that they can into this game, and the story doesn’t fall behind either.
As in the earlier demo, Evren is heading towards Olympia City when she suddenly crosses paths with some bandits. At the same time, she meets a group of young men and they help each other against the group of bandits, as the young men introduce themselves as Zero, Four, and Nine. While, they don’t seem to have the best first time interactions, they end up meeting again as she enters the group as well. Evren ends up meeting Dr. Park and is explained why she was chosen for this project and from this point, the player is allowed to see some extra character scenes.
I really enjoyed seeing the scene with Zero and that they were able to sort of bond due to being the newest members of the team. Evren’s scenes with Four and Six are a bit more complicated due to their personalities and positions on the team, but it will be intersting to see how that develops over the course of the story. Though, they are only referenced in the game, I am also excited to see the rest of the team in the full game. From how Evern reacts to the city she has been hoping to see for so long, it seems that there are a lot of issues in play within the game, so it would be nice to see just how they develop within a full game because it has the potential for a drama and and growth for all of the team.
