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.
It seemed like a decent game but i found it really hard. If you don't do fights right and lose all your hero gauge power your dead. if any of your party members go down game over there's no resurrection. the game has no actual tutorial except if you go to the arena and ask someone about stuff. also if your epileptic do not play a number of screens in the game have constant flashing screens which i found hard to look at. Last I also found the story to be lacking but I did not go that far into it due to the difficulty and I did not have the patience for it.
