Good

Enjoyable, if predictable.

On the good side, the animation is beautiful, and the game scratches all those RPG itches. On the bad side, it's very predictable, and it seems like the makers of the game make you backtrack a lot to pad out gameplay time (this is your objective, but first you have to do this, but before you can do it you have to go back to where you were before and do something else). The best way I can describe it is that it's like a Tales of...game, dressed up in Studio Ghibli animation. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Tales of...games, but with all the great things I had heard about this game I was left a bit disappointed.

Pretty solid, you're looking at about a 40 hour game if you move at an upbeat pace, make sure to level up JRPG standard rate, Five levels extra between your regular leveling. So grind out that XP if you want to finish the game without too much of a hassle. Game was good, Pretty long though. Decent story.

This game is beautiful, but it is boring.. I like games that feature freedom and boat loads of customizable options.. This game is a JRPG through and through...
There are few options and the graphics and story are very good but the rest just sucks the life out of me.. The price says it all.. Game fly offers me a chance to owns this title for a mere $13 to $14... That actually sounds tempting... But no, I can't... it is boring... While it can be compared to Pokémon, it just comes off as slow..
It is a slow but beautiful game, that lacks the options that I would be used to... And it put me to sleep... I like the Pokémon series, because the main character is me, but this game's protagonist is a boy named Oliver...

I feel that while it is a nice game, it has a slow pace that can put someone to sleep... Try before you buy!
Note : I wish I could have had some more options and it would have been nice if it didn't chastise me for coming up decisions on my own! Yes, too much hand holding! I shouldn't have to wait until some time later for the game to get good! It should be good from start to finish...
