This game is a little different from the norm in that you can see and avoid some of the monsters or chase them if you want. The graphics are great even on the small screen. Some level ups will even give you skill points to distribute to your character. One of the drawbacks for me was the lack of control over some partners. A big one for me was the lack of any extra save files.

at first i was like :) then i was like :(, this game is just way to much grinding for levels, when you switch your vocation or class you go back to level 1! your skills from you previous class carry over but come on, why must i go back to level 1? i was so excited for this game but this game is way to long for a nds game, i played for hours and hours until my eyes literally hurt, then out of the blue i said i dont want to play this anymore, maybe if you could journey with people over WI-FI it would be way better because i could just focus on 1 or 2 of my characters but no, thats not how it is, if there wasn't so much time spent on changing class from level 40 to level one and grinding to get your level back just to find out that there is another class that you just unlocked and you gotta go down to level 1 again, it would be a great game, THE GRAPHICS ARE GOOD THOUGH

Great game. Not perfect, but still a lot of fun.

I enjoyed it very much. The story line is a little weak and the characters aren't all that interesting, so that's why I didn't rate it a ten. However, the customization of characters and the fact that you can create all kinds of items and weapons is a lot of fun. To me, anyway.
