This game had potential, but the reading never stopped. I bet I read for 20 minutes before the game play even sort of started. The story isn't that interesting or unique to encourage me to read my video game. I quit after an hour of play. I was bored.
The catch phrase of this game is simplicity. While simplicity is a great thing because everyone wants an intuitive control scheme and fluid game-play but this game is just plain boring. The graphics are terrible. I know the Wii is not know for it graphics but in this game they are truly terrible. The story isn't bad I just didn't stick around to hear it because the battles were terrible. I would rather play an rpg from the 90's on virtual console or ds then waste my time with this garbage.
An enjoyable game with a unique fighting system. The camera controls can be difficult to use. Much of the non-fighting of the game is spent finding your way through the bureaucracy of the planet. Translations are excellent. Game play provides many useful features. A definite break from the RPG mold. All in all, as long as you're not expecting much from this game, it's well worth the play.
