Many say that this game is "Too Hard" and "A mess of menus". They are right! But for gamers who enjoy a challenge and massive RPG format style this is the game for you. A gripping story with loveable characters, favorites from other famous games, a brand-new style of battle and field play, all of these make Cross Edge one for the history books.
If you cannot handle long drawn out cut-scenes or difficult battle simulations then this may not be the game for you. But if you think you can handle it then push through and cross the edge!!

When I first played the game i didnt even know it was an rpg until i got to the tutorial but after that it was somewhat fun.its realy easy if your good at these types of games and if its too hard than you just suck.but i myself stoped playing the game for days because it was horiable until i got good but i dont see why the guys dont have costumes that look cool...
This combination of worlds is REALLY great. I love all these characters and its nice to see another merger of gaming done right! Haven't seen a decent mesh of game titles or the like since Marvel v. Capcom. This is a MUST buy if you like NIS titles or RPGs with a new story.
Good- Probably the most original story line I have seen in about 3 or 4 years. The characters mesh really well, its not forced how they come together and work. The game system is awesome, the spirit search element is really cool, it has loads of trophys in game and on PS3 network to try earning! Very fun combo/fighting system! Also, nearly 100% voice acted!
Bad- The fighting system and combos take some time to figure but once you get it there is no stopping you. Also, some of the voice actors are annoying at best (but not all of them). They are ignorable too... or you can ignore it all the fun way and turn on Japanese voices and just read the dialog, the Japanese voice acting is MUCH better and easier to listen too.
Ugly- not sure if its my system or the game (tending to think its the game) but I have had several times where the game has just locked up and had to be reset. It has happened at load screens of all sorts. Which is another down side, the number of load screens is a bit of a pain but if you install the game it greatly reduces the load time. I tend to think also, the lock ups may have been caused by a corrupted install. I deleted and re-installed the core game, seems to work better but still locks up once in a great while.
Overall, if you can get around the game locking up, its REALLY awesome. Ill take a little pain (that can be greatly avoided for the most part if you save often) for such a great title though.
Side FYI- if you delete and reinstall you will need to re-install your DLC from PS3 network as well. Otherwise the game will delete all the "illegal or unrecognized content". Not a big deal... just something to remember.
