A classic JRPG with all the trappings but none of the cyberpunk retro-future anachronism of a square soft game. Developed by Japan's Blizzard, Level5, this game is highly enjoyable all the while making you feel like your walking around a classic studio ghilbi movie. JRPG's are dead because this will be the exception that proves the rule! As the french say " Le Roi est mort, vive le Roi!"
It never fails. I hear a jrpg game has great reviews and everyone is raving about it. Then I pop in it and sit down and have to watch 30 minutes of backstory and exposition I don't care about. When do I get to play?
At this point it's been 45 minutes, the cut scenes are STILL going in the background as I write this.
About every five minutes, the game lets me walk ten steps and hit "X" a bunch of times to scroll through dialogue I don't care about, then walk ten more steps to trigger the next cut scene. It is maddening. No thanks.
A little kids game disguised as an RPG. Annoying and predictable characters, and almost insulting level of voice acting. If you love Final Fantasy, you may like this one. If you prefer Skyrim style RPG's this will disappoint.
