Excellent

Great game with realistic expectations

I recently borrowed this game from a friend (still waiting for GF to let me rent it) and I could tell not even 10 minutes into this game that the only people who are giving this such a low rating are people that got it and expected it to be like every other RPG they've played. This game is not. This game is actually a challenge. If you go in knowing that this game is meant to push your gaming skills to the edge you will thoroughly enjoy this game as long as you have it. If you go in expecting it to me like every other RPG where "skill" is nothing but the equipment you have and how many potions you carry, you will be severely disapointed. Like the title says, if you rent this game with realistic expectations, you will enjoy this game for the weeks that you have it.

Gameplay - 9/10. Only thing that bugs me about the gameplay is the camera angle can get a little messed up at times.
Graphics - 10/10
Sound - 7/10
Story - 9/10 A lot of people probably disagree with me on this one, but I enjoy learning the story as I play (which is how someone in this situation would learn what's happening). It's not fun if you get told the entire story in the first five minutes of the game.

Why I dont like this game.

The first thing you notice when you start playing is the controls are just like flying a fighter in ace combat simply moving forward means you have to push down on the control pad when your in a battle though is why I did not like this game when you fight sometimes when you push left or right on the control pad the entire screen goes in circles like crazy. I did not like this game because the control is all screwed up hence this is just another slap a sticker on and sale game. So I give it a 3 at least they tried to make this a game. But in the end failed and I am a rpger and started with the legend of zelda on the nes in like 1985 and this game is original but lacks any depth or flare. And last fighting the monsters in this game is not hard you just have to play with the right strategy or your done.

This Game Sucks

i played this game like 3 times for like 20 minutes each time, and this game sucks, u die way too easy, the speed ratio between u and ur enemies is way off, if ur controller gets disconnected, it doesn't even pause, u just keep getting attacked, and every time u save, ur enemies all come back!!
