the game looks good and has eye candy, the story is intiesing and powerful from the get go, but the combat is over-machinalised to the point of crippling. and the tutoiral keeps it all clear as mud because you just have to learn and master it all at once. and you have to fight ever little random monster just to advance, even if you escape from random battles you still can't go forward. you have to kill every little thing just to get to the next town at any desant rate. no advancing means no further play.
I am a huge RPG player and fan. But this one is very....very different. The turned based fighting is cool but thats about the only good part bout this game. Its in japanese with english subtitles and its pretty much ps2 graphics and no cinimatics. Very dissapointed with this game. I say its a 3/10
