What truly killed this game was the pressure from it to just get things done as fast as you can or be punished by the ending. The battles were to easy and then all of a sudden sky rocket to hard with the middle boss. The music was nice, graphics were cute also so that was a plus.
but i dont like games that force you to do somthing in a timely manner (its the one flaw in persona/devil survivor games). If it wasnt for the time limit i would have enjoyed this game more then just frantically trying to do everything i can as fast as i can only to learn that taking your time on the first playthrough will give you a horrible and somwhat depressing ending.
The graphics are mediocre as in most these days, but the horrible flaw to this game is the voice overs. Long delays on fill in story that really have no purpose into getting what the game is about via the story line. Controls are laggy along with the battle system. The alchemy creation system is a nice touch but not enough to save the game. Overall, you can save time by by passing this one.
The only thing I can say about this game is to make sure you register the items you use regularly at the shops in town and around the world. I spent to much time making items, and In the end ran out time and got the poor ending. Register your items that's all I can say.
