I am a super huge fan of this genre,and series. The fact that this game has such a bad rating is literally disgusting.Two worlds two now that game lacks in just about everything.Here's the deal if you did not like final fantasy tactics then you wont enjoy this, however if you do then ### yeah welcome to the party! -SKYSQUID

JRPG Masterpiece; Not for Everyone

First off, this is a hardcore JRPG (Japanese Role Playing Game). This isn't something like final fantasy or the like.

For the Review
This game has many good qualities. Gameplay is solid, graphics are solid, and overall voice acting is great. Although, these types of graphics may tend to steer some gamers away from this game. Also, the gameplay is meant to make you grind..ALOT. For those willing to take the time and effort, will see the effects with powerful weapons and awesome abilities. Also, a dating-sim aspect is included in the storyline as you must choose one heroine to bride with and have a child which will continue the story.

There are flaws to this game though. As I mentioned before...Grinding is a major part of producing super ultra powerful characters. You may spend days at a time just to get a certain weapon or get to a certain level. Also, bosses will stress you to the point where you may turn off your system without saving or even throwing your controller out the window (Just an example).

The main point I have to make to gamers who look at this game, please, if you are not a fan of JRPG's, don't rate it because you don't like it, but rather find something you prefer better. And to those JRPG maniacs out there, please buy the game, you will spend eternity leveling up your characters so you may find renting this game for multiple weeks on end.

Story 8
Gameplay 7
Graphics 8
Characters 9.5
Replayability: Hard enough to get through one playthrough, but yes.
Overall 8/10

Remember kids, don't judge a game by it's cover...most of the time. >.<

Alright guys here's the deal... This game is NOT THAT BAD!!! If you are a fan of this genre of game you WILL enjoy it. The story was engaging and i enjoyed it. If you liked games such as Soul Nomad, Disgaea, or even Fire Emblem its likely that you will like this game. To all of the whiners who say "OH EM GEEZ DEZE GRAPHIKZ R 4 DE PS1!!!!!!!!!!111111!!1!!!!!!" No, no they are not. The graphics in this game are drawn in a way different to what most of you are accustomed to. Honestly think of what this game would be like if it had Call of Duty graphics....... it just wouldn't work. At all. Also if you are playing this genre of game for the first time don't pick this one to start with. Pick Disgaea 3, its a very humorous game that by the end you'll be accustomed to the graphics style and ready for this game. Now on to the game play. It is VERY slow to start out with but by the time you get 3 or 4 people in your party it won't be very boring. It actually gets quite entertaining to watch a baddie get utterly destroyed by meteors, large weapons of all sorts, and various other spells/abilities. Its also nice to watch your combo meter hit astronomical numbers later in the game. In conclusion, this game is for Hardcores of the genre, newcomers would be better off starting with a game like Disgaea or Soul Nomad. Oh, one more thing... yes the audio is in japanese. But don't freak out! there's subtitles for the cutscenes and if you watch japanese anime which is likely if you enjoy this genre of game then it won't bother you one bit and the chatter during the battle is pretty easy to understand if you've watched japanese anime for a while. For those of you who haven't watched japanese anime... i recommend watching Tales of the Abyss, excellent anime with a game made after it... or was the anime made after the game? I don't know. Regardless start there if you think reading the subtitles on cutscenes will get annoying.
