Basic enemy encounters can make this a tough sell...

Summary: Graphics and music are beautiful. Original plot and character development. Unfortunately, as good as the gameplay is, even generic or random encounters still require substantial thought and effort every time making the game feel more repetitive and exhausting than it should be unless you're fine...
Decent JRPG with a great idea, less than stellar execution

Summary: I am about 10 hours into the game so far, so I will update my review accordingly if my opinion changes as the game progresses. First I will start with the good. This game uses a turn-based battle system where the enemies are positioned on a grid.
Summary: I thought I would love this game, going by all the great reviews. Normally, I enjoy dialog in my video games. It's like playing a book, and I like that. However, this game still sort of annoys me, since you have to go through the exact same *long* dialog over and over again.
Summary: That's not to say the game is horrible. Rather, I expected more "game" than I actually received. I was skeptical about just how fun such a game could possibly be, so I wasn't expecting a shockingly amazing experience or anything..
Summary: I was ready for another rpg, a genre that for some reason has stagnated over the last 4-5 with very few traditional rpgs (jrpgs at least) and with more "action oriented" combat (FFXIII, etc.) to appease a wider audience and the result is games that are mediocre and sometimes just plain bad.
Summary: This game started off amazing, and the battle system was extremely well done and unique. This game was a lot of fun....for a while. After a while, you begin realizing that you're fighting the same enemies over and over again, walking through the same areas over and over again.
Summary: This game just didn't grab me. I ended up finishing it, but just because I wanted to see the ending. Once I did, I haven't picked it up again. Some games I replay. And, I replay them a lot when I'm bored. This game isn't bad. The battle system isn't too hard, and the story wasn't too bad either.
Summary: In this game, Locke, a brooding loner hero with a troubled past must go on a dangerous mission for his country. As luck would have it, turns out the world is dying, and now he has to fix that too. The story and characters are interesting - I found myself desiring to know more about them.
