I'm currently 40 hours in and this game has already exceeded my expectations and I am no where near finished. I have never played a game from the YS series before so I was excited to give it a go! I was and still am, amazed with how rich the in-game world was, packed with side-quests and all sorts of different enemies that all have different strengths and weaknesses. The locations are all beautifully designed and the characters are a cute, interesting and mysterious. Just what I expect from a JRPG. Whether or not this game is for you, is for you to decide, but I personally would not shove this game to the side just because one person did not like it. Give it a try, because you might end up enjoying it!
