This is one of the best RPGs I have ever played on the ps3. I'm not gonna get into super critic mode. The game play is fun and the story is great. Either or is gonna get you stuck to the end. I think everyone should play it an if your not a gamer you would still probably get drawn into the story watching someone play.

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.
