After reading great reviews on launch, I bought this game. It does have some interesting elements but it is deeply flawed. First, this game is GRAY. Just gray warehouse after gray city. The characters were just as bland.
I could deal with that, but the battle system is designed around having three characters, and you cannot do any remotely powerful moves unless all three are positioned correctly in the battle area. Problem is, there are whole sections of game where one of your characters wanders off due to a story point. I got so frustrated trying to battle with only two characters that I just abandoned the game around level 6 or so. I never quit games, especially RPGs. The frustration just eclipsed the fun, so I moved on.
I would recommend renting this game before buying.
