Iv fallen asleep multiple times playing this game, its just utterly BORING! I think i'v warn off the X button's X due to all the worthless information and boring childish dialog. The spelling errors are tolerable but the lack of fun isn't!
-Battle system (if you can ever get to it) Is so stupid! making it Real Time was a bad idea it should of been turn based so that you could actually make it fun! oh and here's a tip - the only time you block is on boss fights if you waste your time blocking on trash mobs your an idiot.
-Trash mob's spawn rates are way to high, you cant even turn around after you take out something the last thing you battled is already back up and behind you running around. so getting though an area and checking every spot is very time consuming (yet it forces you to lvl up)
-MP is wasted in battles to get the stuff over with and then when you need it for story line stuff or to heal yourself out of battle you have to find a save spot to get it back or lvl up. so tip - keep mana pots on you at ALL TIMES or you will hate this game so much.
-visuals. It really isn't that bad I liked the kid like drawings and etc.
-The amount of chat that pops up on your screen and they couldn't do a little voice acting drives me nut's. I think if it was on a Gameboy I wouldn't be as disappointed with it but its on a ps3 and for the amount of text I was required to read I would figure why not just give the game to me in book format.
I cant honestly say I had fun or if I enjoyed this game at all let alone recommend it, so just take heed to my tips.
-mana pots all times
-bring plenty of coffee before you start you will need it
-set your ps3 to never shut off or your you will fall asleep and forget to save and have to do that boss fight all over again.
