This game is the best turned based RPG for 360. The story line is great, the graphics are amazing, and if your not a fan of english dubbed you can chooses Japanese voices instead. Each Character has hes/her own personality that you grow to love. This game also features up to three player co-op when battling and each player can choose who they want to be. I really Recommened renting this game, It's a great game that I enjoyed more than anything for the 360. 10 out of 10!!!

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.

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!)
