Personal preference, you can't save when you want. Many times I sit down for a quick play while waiting for whatever, and with these types of games I end up repeating the same sequence over and over. Didn't have it long enough to give much game info.
It's not bad for a straight follow the path sort of game. There really isn't many "freedoms" within the game itself. You feel like there might be multiple adventure paths to follow, but there really isn't. If you want to fight and follow the path (literally) it's not bad. Graphics nice, battle gets a little repetitive, but it is fun with a good story line.
