Great game, definitely worth a rent.
The Story was fantastic and really what I was playing for.

The graphics were on par with what you would expect from a Tactical strategy RPG.

Some missions were very challenging though those became fewer in number the farther in the game I got.

If you want to get all the characters, I recommend using a FAQ as one or two of them are fairly obtuse to obtain.

After I got done playing Path of Radiance I compared it to The Sacred Stones for the GBA. In POR, units can only advance to the next class unlike SS where you choose your desired class. You can teach units skills and unique skills to certain characters, you fight on different maps which can range from villages, forests, marshes, deserts, snow capped mountains, and more. The reason I gave it a ten out of ten is for the replay value, more than 20 characters that have different conversations with other units, three difficulty levels, you can use whoever you want whenever you want, and you can play maps on the extra option which are pretty hard. On the downside: lots of reading(but can be skipped), only 6 cut scenes, and as I stated earlier you can only advance to one class type for each character. "THIS IS MY FIRST REVIEW, SORRY IF I LEFT ANYTHING OUT."

SSBM was what originally interested me in the game, but it certainly stands alone as a great RPG. One of my top 5 picks for GC.

Pros:
Great story and developed characters.
Good differentiation between the different classes.
Well animated.
Fun and easy to learn battle system

Cons:
Quite short.
When a character dies, they can not be revived and fade from the story.
