This series is tired. All of these games are exactly the same, but with a different plot twist. I used to love this series but it is just getting old. These games consist of the same monsters, the same problems that the hero gets dragged into and the same need to constantly grind in order to properly progress through the game. I used to be a fan but not anymore.

I couldn't even play more than a hour because of the battle system, you lock on 2 targets and it hits 1?

Great Story, Slow Progression

+Epic, engaging story.
+Choosing monsters for your party adds depth to combat and a design element.
+Characters joining/leaving party with story keeps things fresh.
-Slow to get started, very few interesting combat options at first.
-LOTS of grinding for experience and money.
