Excellent

Very good game but is very long

This is one of the best RPGs the 3DS has to offer right now. It has an enticing story line and it will always introduce you to new characters and new environments. The only downside to this title is that it is VERY long. If your looking for a short story to pass the time, THIS GAME IS NOT FOR YOU. If you are completely happy with a long story line and interesting plot that has twists and turns at every corner, you SHOULD get this game. The graphics are not the best, but the 3D is a pleasant surprise, making the environment you are in to look very nice and detailed. The fighting in this game may get a little bit repetitive to you, but your characters always get new skills and items so it never really gets boring.

Wow this was a looooooong game perhaps longer than any of the Kingdom hearts games. I rented this game Feb 13th and just put it into the mailbox to go back July 25th. Between school and work this game took a lot of time to finish. However, it's a really nice RPG I enjoyed it, although it can sometimes feel a little draggy but all in all very good game. I'm gonna go watch the anime now.

When I first saw the reviews on it, I thought this game was going to be mundane and similar to other games that I have played. My expectations of the game were not significantly high and I thought to be returning it the next day.

To my surprise the game play itself wasn't the only thing that kept me going, but the story-line was perplexing. The predictions I made ahead of time of what would happen were dashed as it unfolded bringing new ideas into my head.
The graphics weren't amazing, but with the 3D effect it brought it up to a level that I enjoyed.
The style of fighting is repetitive, but with the add on of new skills and items made it refreshed as my characters grew in level!
I hope many would consider to trying out this game and also experience the same joy I have received.
