I have to say this game is crazy good. I hate Anime and I still love this game, the music is amazing and the graphics are great as well. Must buy.

One thing a lot of people miss is that you can play this game coop with up to 2 other friends. This is unusual for an RPG. The fighting is great funI have pretty much played this game from start to where I am now (about 17 hours in). I absolutely love this game.

I have never had any issues with items, in fact we rarely use them. Maybe this will change later on when things get harder. Personally, I like the item limitation as the game would be too easy if they were limitless.

I like the linearity of the game. It's a matter of taste I guess. Since this game is coop, the linearity works in your favor when you are playing with friends (who wants to watch you figure out mazes and backtrack all over the place trying to figure out where to go next?). The game moves at a very brisk pace.

We thought the voice acting was excellent with a few minor exceptions. The main characters were played perfectly.

And I would like to doubly highlight that this game has one of the best soundtracks to date. It is absolutely magnificent. Probably the best soundtrack that I've heard this entire generation.

If you like Japanese-style role-playing games, you cannot go wrong with this game. You will love it.

Final Fantisy VII meets Appleseed 2004

Pros:
The concept art is strikingly similar to Appleseed's 2004 anime hit. The game play is reminiscent of the FF series and the sequences are truly a work of art. Speaking of art; the game encapsulates Chopin's history in the story.
Cons:
Some of the cut scenes are a bit too long (thankfully we can skip it) and there's just a tiny bit of redundancy between areas; but, otherwise it's a very solid game for those who want to "relax" a bit from Halo 3 and Heavenly Sword! (Best games ever!)

I heard a lot of really good things about this game and it lived up to them.

The artwork and spells are beautiful. The character are diverse in their abilities and have interesting/bizarre backgrounds.

The battle system is addictive and gets more challenging as your party progresses. Your character levels but your party will also. In higher party levels the battle system is more challenging but your new abilities will offset this.

There are plenty of items to collect lots of achievements to unlock, many of which can only be gained by a second play through.

I though this was a really fun game and I actually bought it cause I knew I would want to play it through again.
