TRINITY: Souls of Zill O'll
Platform: PS3
Genre: Action-JRPG
Publisher: KOEI

I’ve been very curious as to why no one has talked about this game on the PA forums, and I have a sneaking suspicion that it is because of the lack of a good thread to discuss. I fully expect this thread to probably die out within a few pages because of the lack of online, but I want to put this game into light and hopefully get a few PAers to give it a shot!

I have had this game from Gamefly in my house for over a month now. Now I really want to get another game to get my money’s worth, but the problem is: it’s just so good. I look at the reviews and wonder what the living shit they were talking about when playing this game. It’s got everything you could want from an Action-JRPG.

Here is a list of notable things about the game:
  • Randomized loot! – That’s right, the loot in the game is almost completely randomized. When you go to an area and open a chest, it will almost always be a different item. (I say chances are, because sometimes if you don’t open a chest or have too many items, the item normally remains) You can also get items that increase your chances of getting a higher quality items.
  • Skills! The game has three different souls for each of the characters. Each soul has 4 useable skills, and 4 passive skills.
  • Various quality items! The game uses a D – U scale to tell you about the quality of the items. D being the lowest quality item and U being unique. There are a TON of various unique weapons/armor that you can equip with various enhancements on them.
  • Rare monsters! Some monsters will appear with a yellow aura around them. If you kill them you will get a good item. These monsters are usually much harder than normal and have different resistances/immunities so you have to be on your toes.
  • Side quests! Each town has an Adventurer’s Guild which allows you to pick up randomized quests at a randomized location for a randomized item. Normally it’s just money, but sometimes you get some good stuff from them.
  • Arena battles! In one of the main cities you can fight in an Arena to compete for prestige and loot. You bet money and you fight. You keep the SP/XP you gain from it as well!

The game also has trolls, goblins, dragons, zombie dragons, griffons, more dragons, and chimeras. It also has a tri-attack, which allows you to kill bosses/large monsters in one hit when you get their hit points down to about 10-15%. There is also a casino where you could bet your hard earned gold to win coins which you turn around and purchase some good unique loot.

Combat is pretty standard for a Action RPG. You have 3 buttons: Square, Triangle, and Circle. (X is used to jump) And you assign each button an attack, and you get an additional page using R2. So overall you can have 6 skills available instantly. If you need to change it up, then you can do that mid battle as well.

There are 3 different characters in the game: Areus, Dagda, and Serene.

Each character is used to make certain boss fights easier to manage. You can switch characters easily by pressing L2.

I am currently at about 45 hours into the game and I think I’m nearing the end… It looks like the highest level is possibly 60, but I’m not sure yet. I just hit level 50 and I’m having a blast with the game! The story isn’t half bad either.

So please give it a shot... And please post any questions for the game that you have! I will certainly answer them as quickly as possible.

(HINT: If you click the RS it will target a monster allowing you to keep it in the center of the screen)

    I did play the Demo for this game, but didn't think it was particularly interesting.
    Ever notice how Japanese games with a trio of protagonists always seem to be loosely based on Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei?

    I will second the statement that this game is definitely worth a look, but not for the combat (which is very simple) or the areas (which are recycled ad nasuem over cookie cutter quests). It takes a bit to get going, but I really enjoyed the story. The game has one of the saddest happy endings I have ever seen.

    I didn't realize there was a demo. :P

    And how do you mean? I have minimal knowledge on the Three Kingdoms story.

    Oh man... I'm real nervous now.

    Fireball + Flamestrike + Fireball seem to kill almost everything I need to.

    It sounds pretty good. I'll watch for it to get cheaper but I just have too many games right now.

    Yeah I'm looking online right now for a cheap place to pick it up, but it looks like it's still $50-60.

    I've found 35$ but that's still a little rich right now. I've played about 15 minutes each of inFamous 2, Alice, Shadows of the Damned, Trenched and DWG3 is coming AND I still have to keep up in RIFT, Champions, Terraria and Mincraft. And I have about an hour a day to play and then only 4 days a week.

    Just picked this game up last week to the GAF thread saying lots of good things about it (and comparing it to Nier). Haven't played it yet.
