Extremly great game, read or watch what it is and if its your type of game rent .
Ignore most reviews, which you should always do.
Most complain about Minor things or are because they are unskilled.
Goods: Almost everything.
Very few times camera can be annoying, but as it is not real time its not a big deal to take time fixing it.
Tanks running over defeat/main characters = immediate fail/lose: realisticish, but can be hardcore annoying, but all you need to do is becarful.
Repetitive battles, mix things up yourself there is no one way to win ANY battle (I even used guns a good portion of my first time, and most suggest ditching them)
Bad guys appearing out of no where/ enemy reinforcments, just don't panic and quickly reorganize/regroup kinda realistic also
Ending battles annoying and ridiculos: I kind of agree.., but stick with it and you will be fine.
Hints: just read up on some of the "secret"/extra stuff so you don't miss out.
Atlus has always made quality games for PS2 and their transition to xbox 360 with Operation Darkness was a great way to start their first next gen console game. The graphics may be a bit mediocre but the game had a great control scheme and the story was awesome. If you like RPG games than i would definitely recommend getting this game.

To be honest, when I played this game, I thought it was going to be disappointing, but in the end it turned out to be a great game, intense plot, filled action and game play, this is how a game is suppose to be made.
