Looks great, plays smoothly, short load times. Repetitive missions using recycled maps, minimal character interaction, no story to speak of, pretty much the polar opposite of an RPG. All in all it's a very solid execution of a very boring and pointless game.

Eh, this game isn't for me. Though mainly that's because all you do is stand around the city and then go to one room and get a mission and then repeat forever. Of course I got bored and didn't get past chapter 2 so maybe it changes halfway through but mission based RPGs are boring to me. I liked the idea of being able to make your own character and have it similar to an MMORPG style but you can't explore anything which makes it really restrictive and boring since you have to select missions if you want to grind on monsters to get items and you have NOWHERE to go outside of missions. I just like exploring worlds a lot more than constantly walking up to the same spot and taking one mission after the other.
I do like the fighting and the combos you can do are fun. You just feel so powerful when you send enemies flying. It's easy to fight with out feeling too easy. The quick access menu to your potions is very useful and the lock on feature can save your life in big boss fights. Moreover the card power up system is useful and not confusing or complicated which is good.
So basically it's a nice game but not for me. If the mission areas were bigger or you had to travel to different spots to get quests so you could explore the place I'd be a lot happier.
