Great game love it studio Ghible did a really good job as well as level 5 thanks everyone for making this game the best game I played for the year I hope you guys can make another game just like this one
this game came out of nowhere for me and i am so glad i rented it. i seriously had more fun playing this in the first 10 hours than i did the last two final fantasy games! and i love final fantasy by the way..not a hater. colorful, witty, fun game experience for all ages here on this. not a over complicated battle system and menu but enough variety to keep it fresh with the collecting of familiars. it is cute and very gorgeous looking,it looks like you are watching a anime while you play. may be too cutesy for some but give it a try and you'll be hooked.
ok now for the only bad part so far (i am saying this 11 hours in..this may change..who knows??) the only drawback and complaint i have is that i feel the actual characters are very weak and you are depending on using the creatures to battle exclusively. i wish the creatures were used more as a situation calls for it.(boss battles,special attacks, etc,etc...) it just feels like i have used my character for 10 minutes after the initial 2 hours or so. i pretty much swap my character in to heal,revive and change to serenade creatures to capture them and that is it. other than that this game is a lot of fun..i can not stress that enough, i have used that word a bunch of times and that is the best way to describe this gem of a JRPG..FUN!! try it!!
