Ok ill keep it short. It starts off really slow. The story line is very kid friendly and can be kind of dry for adults. But this game has depth. the weapon customization will have you busy for hours. tons of side missions, the battle system is pretty deap. over all you will spend close to 100 hours playing this game is you want to complete everything. a very good RPG.

I liked the story and sidequests of this game, but this game was destroyed for me by the poor battle system. I tried really hard to give this title a chance and play through it, but the battle system is just terrible. When fighting bosses you almost have to be overleveled because usage of items in the battle makes the player stand still and you get the beat down while using the healing item which usually leads to death. It is overly complicated to switch to another character during battle and you team mates AI is ridiculously stupid which also usually leads to death. I am not an old school RPG freak who thinks every battle should be turn based, but for the love of all RPGs take time to make the battle system as good as Star Ocean. A little more work by the developers could have saved this game for me and I would probably be singing its praises instead of warning people to stay away from it.
pretty solid rpg good characters story music and battle mechanics...the only thing that got on my nerves was the sub par graphix and the plot points were few and far between...but like i said all around good game any rpg fan should enjoy!!!!!!
