I really liked this game! The story was intriguing, the characters were well thought out, and the gameplay was nearly flawless. One thing I didn't like however was the difficulty of battles. This game is good for gamers who love to level grind and explore open-world enviornments. I have put this game on my "To-Buy" List.

Oh my gosh, this game BLEW MY MIND. The story, PERFECT. The characters PERFECT. The gameplay, PERFECT. The whole game: PERFECT. There is not ONE problem that I experienced in the game. It is downright PERFECT! I could go on for hours on how much I would love this game. When I first saw this game, I thought I wasn't going to like it because it wasn't sopposed to be released in America. But when I played it, I was LITERALLY stuck to my bean bag chair. The game is long, the voice acting is awesome. This is such an amazing game, and so far, the best on the wii... EVER.

I don't usually like JRPGs but this one was actually pretty fun for a while. The battle system wasn't confusing just for the sake of only attracting pseudo-intellectuals and Japanese children. It was actually easy to grasp and fun to use. I won't fault the game for its poor graphics, this is the Wii after all. A lot of cut scenes actually look pretty nice for this system. The game is kinda slow to pick up and the story and dialogue are kinda cheesy/boring, but the gameplay makes up for it in my opinion. The only problem I had with the gameplay is the arrow that directs you on the way to your next mission. It was accurate enough, but if your next mission happened to be on top of a large cliff which you proceeded to fall off you'll have to spend longer than you probably want to trekking to find a way back up. There's no way to restart at a checkpoint so the best you can do is load a saved game if you want to cut out all that extra traveling. So yeah, save often.
