CoTM is really good. But to me, it feels more like a rygarmania version of Bloodlines than CV3.
The looks and music, and the overall feel of the game.
But that might be, because i played right after i did an intensive on Bloodlines to try and finally finish it (i did once and won't ever again)
I had already played Aria and Harmony before and Circle def. feels different, more akin to the older games.
But, Aria still holds the top spot of the GBA games, imho.
I'm playing Ys6: The ark of grinding. Seriously. So much grinding in this game. I feel like without it, the game isn't more than 3hrs. But i'm up to 10hrs and i think close to the end.
