Summary: I ADORE RPGs but i absolutely HATE this one!! the battle system has you waiting 20sec or more for the moon to make a full rotation before you attack. Once you destroy and enemy on the 'map' it comes right back, so you must clear out of the area. While you are accessing your menu, you can be attacked.

Pros: Good if your not into a deep , rivveting story line
Cons: so many ? game play, graphics, story line, narration
