I REALLY wanted to like this game since it looked promising (Like a blend of FFVII & Star Ocean IV) however it is SO SLOW in the beginning and the cut scenes are really only a disruption to the flow of the game. Having to read subtitles is one thing but the simple picture of a character with a slightly moving mouth just doesn't do it for me.

I could handle that if they kept them short and sparse, however you are constantly interrupted by them and I just wound up skipping them entirely and just not really knowing what is going on in the storyline. If you have several hundred hours to spend and the patience of G-a-n-d-h-i [What the !#$% GameFly's language filter won't let me use his name!!!] then you may be able to get through this game...

Bad

Jiggling girls don't make a good Strategy RPG.

Graphics are nice in conversations, the rest I've seen in PS1 and PS2 games. However watching one girl's boobs try to slap her in the face every time she nodded was more ridiculous than sexy.

The completely new battle system feels exceptionally random, while the game actively refuses you the tools required to learn the new mechanics without being butchered at the drop of a hat. Unless you pay for the weapon packs they have available.

The English translations are FAR inferior to the game's two predecessors. This holds especially true when the game is trying to explain it's new skill system... The explanation was butchered so badly I was wishing it had a Japanese voice-over so I could get a friend to translate it PROPERLY.

I count myself as a fairly critical person, but try not to be overly negative... In this case, however, I found very little to enjoy. If they wanted to make a dating sim, why bother with the whole epic RPG backdrop??
