Very Good

Worth Renting

Enjoyed playing the game, worth the rental. Only things I had a slight problem with.. the voice over was a little off and the ring system for the battles. It was all about timing, that can be a little frustrating. Great story and game.

All in all, game worth renting, worth playing.

Surprisingly Perfect

I really did not start this game with super high expectations, I had played the first game in the series for the PS2 and found that while the game play was innovative the setting and characters were lacking in interest. Once I began the play this game I was taken aback by the odd characters who I would assume I could not like, but found myself growing more involved in their quirky personalities and struggles. I must say that this is definitely one of those games you should try at least once, it's just that good.

The story and dialog is extremely well written and original in its own context. The main female on the cover has a paper thin personality and I felt we were just dragging her around until about twenty hours into the game then all of a sudden she had an interesting moment or two, however all of the secondary characters’ exuberant personalities more than make up for the oddly boring female they decided to paste on the box. I did not finish the game yet, 40 hours into it and not even reaching the second disk I decided I should just buy it, so maybe she might get interesting later. While it may not have the production values of a Final Fantasy the art is gorgeous and world is so well developed you'll easily find yourself spending hours just walking around and checking out the sights. This is definitely a game that deserves more hype and was well worth dusting off the old PS2 for.

i will will now state the pros. and cons,

pros. good combat system. funny conversations.
memorable characters. lot's of play time,
(it's a long game).

cons. i disliked the story, (it's a very weird ww2
story) didn't fit quiet right graphics aren't too good. enemy design was pretty
bad, compared to ff (final fantasy) it was kind of
plane.

bottom line if you're a fan of the genre you will
almost definitely like a lot if not you may want
to give a try well that's all i have to say
