The title says it all, I felt as if I was watching an animated movie, and not a very good one at that. There simply was an excessive amount of time spent waiting and watching events unfold. Furthermore, once you actually get an opportunity to be involved, your role is limited to running up to the foe, selecting from a minimal set of moves and then waiting for the game to do the fighting. Very lame indeed, there are instant streaming games online which offer more player involvement, excitement and fun. I only gave it a score of four because the graphics and video where decent, plus, there may be extremely laid-back players out there who might enjoy watching a movie which has some interaction interwoven.
Aside from the title screen, the graphics are on par with... PS2, but unless you're a snobby rpg player you will enjoy this game. This jrpg definitely needs to be played, admittedly it took me a while to get used to the battle system which ended up involving more tactics just auto-attack like i thought it would. The voice acting fits well with the jrpg scripts but honestly I can't tell the difference in the voice of Shulk and Reyn who you will hear a lot of. If you are an avid RPG player this game definitely needs to be played
