The gameplay is a mix of the Tales of series with a little bit of Pokemon. There's so many creatures to collect and have them do battle; You'll definitely have a couple of favourites! Overall, this game remined me of what RPG's used to be when I was younger: charm, a great world map, open travel, interesting characters. I'm definitely recommending this one!
EDIT: After 35 hours in I went from 4 stars fun to 5.
I'm not even 20% into the game (about 10 hours or so of gameplay) and I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far. The game is extremely dense in content and possibilities, making it possible to spend the equivalent of days playing it without unveiling all of the content. Visual design is beautiful to look at and the music is great. The writing is also pretty good.
As far as gameplay is concerned, while distinctive for mixing up turn-based and real-time combat, has a few problems that tend to be common to many games, especially those with a level and experience system. As the game has a lot of side quests, I haven't yet felt like I needed to grind in order to defeat a certain game area (i.e.: repetitive tasks in order to level up), although that aspect is still present. Also, boss battles are a source of frustration, which usually consist of a lot of running around and keeping your distance (but again, this is a problem common to a lot of games). A fast travel option is built into the game, but I haven't accessed it yet (apparently it takes about 20 hours of gameplay until you hit it), which is a pain when you have to travel between locations.
Otherwise, it's a beautifully crafted game that is definitely worth picking up if you haven't yet.
The biggest criticism that I have is the amount of tutorials you have to go through in the game. If that annoys you, you will probably have a bad time. You'll still be guided through stuff more than halfway through the game.
Essential game for any RPG-lover.

I find it rather unfortunate that this game, filled with charm and great art, is absolutely frustrating to play due to stupid AI party members. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
