Slow, boring, and difficult

Summary: I bought this game thinking it would be mildly enjoyable. I played one of the older games long ago for just a bit, and thought it was alright. I've played games with similar mechanics and enjoyed them (Tales of Vesperia) and games with similar visual styles and enjoyed them (Phantasy Star Universe) so it seemed like an obvious choice. I played for a bit, and was struck by a couple of things, at first.
Summary: One of the best JRPGs I have ever played. The storyline is pretty decent and the characters are likeable. I love the fact that you can switch between characters in battle and how there's a variety of moves to choose from. The combat is pretty unique, however it can get repetitive at times. I personally love how there's a secret dungeon called the wondering dungeon at the end after you finish the story.
Summary: The game overall is good the story is detailed and decently long, the character advancement is great, but the thing that kills the game is its single biggest flaw. There is no targeting system you literally have to run around and hope you can change your camera angle and hope you switch to the monster you want to kill. this makes beating some of the latter bosses next to impossible.
Summary: Pretty good RPG. Decent graphics. Decent plot (though it does get really abstract and Sci-Fi towards the middle/end). Pretty decent gameplay, thought the camera angles could be better and they do tend to throw off the controls at time. AI is pretty stupid, and you will have to switch between characters during some harder battles to keep people alive.
Summary: It was a great story line with all kinds of add ons and just the perfect mix of story line and combat XD Loved this game.I would say it's what you would expect from the makers.Great love story too.
Summary: i thought all sandbox games were fun,until i played this game,it just sucks,the graphics look like a drawing,just leave it on mute,it will save your ear this is just a head ache waiting to happen,just don't get it
Summary: I bought this game a couple of days ago, and at first it seems like a boring RPG then the opening cinematic takes off and the game takes on a life of it's own. I am hooked on this game and the story seems good so far and game play is flawless.
