Perfect

Better than 360

This is one of my favorite RPGs from the 360, and when it came out on PS3 with more things to do, I was extremely happy, and never disappointed!

This game isn't for everyone, but it contains a solid story. People might find it dumb or silly, but the gameplay, music and graphics make up for it.

Music: 9:
Graphics: 8
Gameplay:9
Story 9
Overall: 10

I gave it a 10 for the extra content included in it that the 360 didn't have.

Pros:
- You get to use over 9 characters (on ps3)
- This game is some what challenging.
- It's better than ff13
- You can skip videos

Cons:
- You need to press circle button at right time to block some damage, if you don't, you will get game overs a lot and will never beat the game.
- Before you start, you NEED to use a walk through, well unless you like wasting a lot of time roaming around and not knowing what to do next. (as well as skipping a lot of treasures and events) (it is straight forward at first, but get's puzzling later on)
- Character betrayal (see spoilers for more detail)
- The main character is too magically girly
- When they show real life pictures with a person narrating...SKIP IT... it's a history lesson that is boring and not important to the game.

--------------------------------------------
SPOILERS!!!!

Warning, do not read what is next unless you really want too... it's not my fault if you look.

Do not use the characters:

Chopin, Claves, crescendo and serenade if you do not need to. They all are temporary characters and will not help you with the final boss.

EVEN WORSE SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!

I extremely do not want you to read this part....

Weak

An RPG just barely

The landscapes and presentation of this game are good. However, there are too many downfalls to this game to qualify it as good.

The Story: Very, very un-engaging. Maybe when this game was one of the first RPG's on the market for PS3 people had low expectations and wanted to get their hands on anything related to that genre but, terrible....just terrible. The dialogue is annoying at times. Beat, really?? Do you have to question everything in such a simplistic 5-year old vocabulary???

The Graphics: Great for what they were set out to be. The world itself was beautiful. Music complemented the theme that was intended

The Gameplay: Good for about the first 6 hours. After that you start to get the itch for more of the RPG aspect. New weapons, new armor, and new skills are extremely scarce in this game. The strong point is that the skills are cool to watch in battle. Otherwise, armor and weapons make NO difference to the characters' appearances, but only attack and defense powers, which are all useless due to the fact that there are absolutely no variation in enemies in a given point of the game. All of this does not qualify as an RPG in my opinion.

A good attempt, but not a game worth playing for the hardcore RPG fans.
