gameplay 9
storyline 6
replay value 7
music 7
voice acting 4

overall a great game to play and have fun with until they come out with final fantasy XIII. I did need a couple guides but they werent all that necessary. dont expect an outstanding storyline its good but the dialogue is something less to be desired. It def makes up for clever gameplay/tactics and the music isnt too bad either. If RPGs is your thing a def must play.

Very good RPG.
Graphics are good.
Story is good, even though it might become a little bit predictable at times.
Combat mode is good, and it is very easily to level up, you don't have to play countless hours to reach higher levels.
Fights are easy to play, and there aren't too many buttons to press.

Overall a very good game.

OK RPG, rough edges

The big flaw in this game is the C-quality storyline and cutscenes. The story really was not that interesting despite trying to go outside of the box using Chopin as a playable character. The characters are easily pigeon-holed into archetypal characters anyone that has played RPGs could recognize.

The battle system is not bad, though at the end the concept of moving the standard buttons to control your characters in battle is beyond lame. Some of the boss battles can be difficult if you have underleveled, which is possible in the PS3 version since the xp awarded was significantly cut from the Xbox version.

Bandai really needs to hire some quality writers. The visual quality of the games themselves are quite nice, but they keep being 1-2 levels below the quality of a Final Fantasy because of their cookie-cutter stories lines (i.e. Tales series).
