Holy crap, tough choice... I'm gonna go with Wrath Steel, only by a fine margin. The play style is awesome, and the graphic rips are, too. But definitely a photo-finish contest.

Personally, I'm turned off by the rips and Ragnarok characters of Wrath Steel, it doesn't seem to fit quite right and looks to have a simple BlizzardABS from the screens. Might not seem that way for everyone, so its just my opinion. So, the choice for me is between Locus and Planeswalker, which I honestly gave the same point scoring for both. Of the two though, I'd have to give my vote to Planeswalker for the level of enjoyablity.

EDIT: I've now played a little of the demo Astyanax: Wrath steel as well, and honestly I can't see the hype other than the nice rips. Perhaps people haven't downloaded the 118mb demo, but its really not that good. I mean no offense, Oracle. The dialogue/grammar is just terrible and often has serious typos, the story so far as I've played is cliche at best with a sixteen year old being pulled into a new world to save a princess (admittedly I have a ways to go still), and the battle system (which is the default BlizzardABS) seems to lag a lot. I don't mean to bash, but I really don't understand why this is getting so many more votes than Locus or Planeswalker.  :-\

I would argue that the grammar and spelling stinks because he is a native spanish speaker, and  as far as the storyline goes, I'd say it's going to be cliche- it's based on a Nintendo game that was released in 1990. I understand the lag issue and finding the sprites unpleasing, after all the latter is a matter of taste and I have not played the game they came from so I can't say how unnatural they may look to one who has.

I think what may appeal to many who have played all of them is the simplicity of the plot- your enemies are clear and accessible, lots of action, it's all laid out for you.

NOOOOOOOO.....
why must these projects all be so good!!!!!!

I'll have to say locus, it gives me a bit of nostalgia from the Xenosaga series, which I enjoyed immensely. Also, I see chemistry, so i can play and say im studying. : D

Astyanax, definitly a very lagg game. As Zylos said, the cool thing is the maps, and characters ripped from ragnarok online game. that's what i most enjoy in the game. the movment doesnt fit very well since it is a 2D game, and not a 3D game...
