Fair

Only for RPG lovers

I have heard great things about this game, so when I got it I had high expectations. First off, the first and only RPG I have played and liked is Pokemon. I wanted to change that, so I got this game. I got two hours in, and I was confused beyond what I thought was imaginable for a video game (and I'm pretty smart, if I have a say). I didn't understand the battles and the battling system AT ALL. I tried to get help from the in-game tutorials, in text and video wallthroughs, and even from my sister (who happened to be in the room at the time). I wish that I could've gotten into it more.

5/10

Relatively long game. Very immersive. Soundtrack is beautiful. The graphics, even though they're on the Wii and not in HD, are amazing. The characters are very very deep and likable. The plot is great with a lot of twists and surprises to keep you interested and shocked. Easily among my top 5 games of all time.

If you're looking for a great JRPG and have time to invest, then I urge you to play this game.

HIGHLY OVER RATED!

Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but the gaming industry and many reviewers are acting like this game is the second coming of christ within the JRPG world. The combat system mimics MMORPGs like world of warcraft. You have your standard healer, dps, tank. I think it's pretty cool, although for a JRPG it doesn't fit well. Additionally, the British accents are way over used. Literally every single character in this game has a British accent. It's annoying and doesn't even match their faces sometimes. Moreover, the game is pretty standard. Nothing note worthy. There are better games out there, such as Ni No Kuni for ps3.
