Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

The HEX fighting system is superb, adding a bit more depth while keeping the basics of turn-based RPG combat intact. Being able to switch out characters in a fight is a nice touch, as is the fact that characters kept "on the sidelines" don't fall behind in power.

Graphics:

It's not quite to the same level as Final Fantasy 12, but it can hold its own with any PS2 title on the market. The anime-style shading and character design really help it out.

Sound and Music:

Passable English voice acting, but the music is very well done.

Difficulty:

As RPG titles go it's not that difficult - but it is fun to play.

Controls and Interface:

I'd give it 5, but some of the menu system suffers - there's a pretty long learning curve for figuring out where all the various options are.

Overall:

If you're looking for something fun to play, or you're an RPG fan in general, this deserves to be in your collection.
