JRPG that will satisfy genre fanatics only
This role playing game is one of the best in the genre out there. It's got an enticing story, it's got a great turn based fighting system and other amenities that keep it in the top. However, it's simply in its nature that it might prove to be repulsive to European and American role playing gamers. Its battles, while very intense and requiring a good grasp of your characters abilities, offensive and defensive, while tackling a very smart AI panoply of enemies can be too thick for some, too hard to grasp. If the game fails somehow, it's because it sets the difficulty bar high. You will feel that the battles are simply too hard, though not unfair, but certainly not for those that don't want to strategize and to consider each and every single option at each turn, make sure the equipment is optimum at each time and so on. The story continues the 3 episode saga before hand, and I'm sure hardcore fans of the games in the series will want to experience the twists and turns that this one has on offer. But, again, I must address this issue: this is a hard game, harder than most RPGs of its kind and harder than most other RPG series that are not Japanese developed, that I've played.
