I love tradtional RPGs and this game is just that. It is lovely world and with huge amount of things to do and see. As to graphics it is a Wii game don't expect PS3 or 360 quality in the visuals but look for the little details that are put in. They make the world just that more real. Expect to do lots of little mini quest, this game is full of them, and expect to do lots of monster grinding for them, but this isn't the usual go there and hit them. The combat is very fluid and with chians and mixing of skills in real time make the game fights go faster and flow better.
I wish we had more games like this in the market and with Last Story an Pandoria's Tower to come the Wii is going out on a strong RPG foot.
The Wii is dead, but this Epic JRPG keeps it alive

Dont let the fact that its on the Wii dissuade you, this is an epic JRPG that melds JRPG gameplay with western MMORPG mechanics. Its long, its got interesting characters and a deep story. A very involving battle system, Its got tons of customization, side quests, and places to explore, epic mobs to kill. The only downside is that its on the primitive Wii, meaning the graphics just arent meant for HD screens. If you can overcome that, you will enjoy this massive JRPG. SquareEnix could learn how to make a good RPG from these guys.

It has very good graphics and story line but the control was very hard and to many things to press just to do something. Combat was hard because while I was trying to scroll for a skill I was getting attacked and just to much to do to do a simple action.
