"A solid if not great RPG experience"
3 stars"

This is one of the few true RPG's available for the PS3 at the moment, so many people will have this title lying around. What you'll find is a decent length story coupled with a fairly solid combat system and some pretty good looking graphics. Sadly this game suffers from some let-downs which are glaringly obvious.

The visuals are pretty good for a game that was originally released on the XBOX 360 about a year and a half prior, and while the FMV is a little sparse compared with other titles, whats there is well done. Character design is pretty good, and the collectable golems found throughout the game are well done. The enviroments are quite pretty at times as well.

Combat is played out through random encounters on a grid based field, with your enemies occupying one half and you the other. You cant enter each others half, but must instead use your abilities to win the battle. Skills are learned mostly at your discretion after they have been bought from the shop, so theres a little bit of character optimzation involved here. The golems you will be fighting can also be obtained for your own team, and offers a whole ‘gotta get them all’ factor.

Where this game trips up is in the dialogue. I'm not familiar with the Japanese version, but I really hope that this is just a bad translation, because its painfull to think this is the original text. As bad as that is (there are some good moments, to be fair), some of the voice acting is simply atrocious. The main character in particular should have been picked up on Quality assurance alone, with the horrendous mismash of tone to circumstance. Voice acting has been a staple in games for years now, theres no excuse for this one.

The music is good, although nothing to go mad about, and the characters themselves are mostly entertaing and intriguing enough to want to learn more. Overall a good game, but let down so badly by the voice acting and some other minor niggles that it just doesn't make the ‘great’ grade.

Overall, buy this game if you have the cash spare and you're waiting around for the next big release,. If you already own the 360 version, you're not really missing anything here.
