Hard to get into...

Like the review is named I found the game hard to get into. I like games that make an attempt to get you into the game play in some immediate way and while the cinematic sequence at the start of your game was an entertaining little bit of village life and glittering generality once you got control of your character it seemed that the controls were too sensitive and it was hard to maneuver the player character into place to speak to the NPCs.

If I had been able to get over my boredom of the first ten minutes of playing I might have enjoyed the battle system but I couldn't and I didn't.

Frequent loading, and unbearable controls & camera

This game had a lot of potential and it just fell flat on all accounts to the point where it's hard to enjoy the game despite the flaws.

The camera has to frequently be reset manually, which wouldn't be too big a deal on its own, but combined with their terrible controls and the slow reaction time of the character, its a big deal.

The areas are so small that you will walk for less than a minute before you have to load a new area. The load times are not too long, but since you change areas so frequently, the load time is significant.

If a little more time was allocated to fixing thee problems, this could have easily been an excellent game. But as is, this game is practically unplayable.

Don't get it

I had a friend suggest this game to me. I almost bought it. After playing it for 3-4 hours I just don't understand what the big deal is. The graphics look like something from the early 2000's. I understand that it is on the Wii and it does not have the processing power of other systems. I really do not understand the fascination with the game. There is way too much clicking through dialog. I found it rather boring.
