Ok. This game isn't for me. I'm not that type of a gamer. I loved the acting and the story it gave but I just couldn't even progress because I was so stumped and my thought process was why am I playing a game that seems to be mint for a handheld device than a console. Lol. But that's what it looked like to me. Although there is very good potential for the story and really good fighting but its not my game. Don't base your rental of this game on my review. Look at why people loved it. And see if that's what you want to play.
I personally like this game. The English voice acting is great and there is a Japanese voice option as well. This games difficult ramps up pretty hard really quick so this is not a game you will beat in a few days. I am only on chapter 2 and have spent 10 to 11 hours doing quest or building better equipment. The game is definitely worth a look. Graphics are kinda stale but the game is a evolution compared to previous title. The gameplay is somewhat challenging and The sounds and music aren't bad.
