The game contains some of the best battles i have seen in a JRPG, with an interesting blend of tactics and button mashing.
The story is average, with a fairly derivative plot, but highs and lows at some points that can stir the emotions.
What really let me down about this game are the bad translations, poor lipsinching and very poor english voice work. The female voices are particularly bad, you will find you grinding your teeth while waiting through some of the unskippable scenes. I found myself turning the sound way down.
