at first glance its hard to tell what to expect. its not a typical side scroller. it feels more like an rpg because theres shops where u buy items. places to sleep to regain hp. your character levels up as well. and the best part is you add more characters to your group as you move along. very fun game. especially if you like the appeal of action rpgs
Even the most mature gamer will have a hard time here and there trying to progress later in the game. You may even find yourself on a wiki or walkthrough like I did (which I never do, just saying).
Aside from that, all of the content of the game is great. Music, characters, 3d capability, whatever... it's all really polished. The story scripts and texts may be a bit boring to read through, however.
