If you're a fan of Japanese style RPGs like final fantasy, Xenogears etc. This is a must buy. The downside to this game is the repetitive hack and slash, which is fairly easy and gets boring, also the game is very linear, with absolutely no options for changes in dialogue and the missions are identical irrespective to your mission performance, finally it suffers from the typical lost in translation stereotype lame japanese dialogue at points. The pros to this game is the fantastic graphics, easy to use controls that have been integrated from an X-box platform to computer, engaging story line with alot of cinematics, an online option (must pay for though), extra game modes allowing endless play as your own highly customisable character (except you can't change attributes, everything else can be changed) and for the price that GP is asking for it!
For those who have never tried final fantasy etc. This game is a good starting point to the genre. Don't be fooled by imitations like WoW and DS, which claim to be RPGs but are really just hack and slash.
