Childish Dialogue, Repetition, Poor Combat AI

Wanted to love this game. Bought it outright after reading reviews. But at 34, I couldn't tolerate the Leave it to Beaver-quality "Golly jeepers, Mister" dialogue.

Also, there is a surprising lack of depth to the combat. Many of the dozens of species of pets you can play are merely new skins. And your AI teammates have to be constantly babysat or they die, stand "in the fire," or waste all your precious MP.

This is the first game I've actually bought and will likely return without beating.

This game made me feel as if I was babysitting. Being forced to watch all of these dreadful cut-scenes and the elementary gameplay was just not what I expected to get out of this game.

With ratings as high as 9.4, I was hoping there would be some sort of substance here. Nevertheless, the game was terrible. I want my 2 hours of life back.

Unfortunately, I disagree with the majority. I couldn't be captivated by the story, or be swept away with the art. I found that the overwhelming cuteness of this took away its full entertainment value. I spent a lot of time being frightened by the creepy looking creatures, or the moments where I'd say, "What the frack is that?" No, this game is not for the more mature of us out there, I'd recommend you be eight, or have the emotional maturity of to play this. Anything over, I don't think you'll get the best experience.
