The game play is standard SRPG, you move your characters around on a grid based battle ground and wipe out your enemy before they wipe out your team. The combat system is just fine but because you can't rotate the battle field its very difficult to see were a character is being placed when the area is crowded with characters and enemies. Also highlighted menu buttons are almost the same color as non highlighted buttons, which caused me several times to either back up and select the proper one or sometimes I would end up doing something in battle I didn't intend like heal a enemy or hurt a friend. Part of the game lets you enhance items; this is a complete waste of time. And luckily you don't need to use it to win the game. The worst part of the game had to be the text of the characters, there are spaces in the words and it made the flow of reading very difficult. The graphics were ok but some times white horizontal lines would appear and also some of the edges to images were jagged. The sound is ok, again nothing special but only part of the dialog with the characters is voice acted. Overall when you factor in the low price and about 30 hours of entertainment this is a good deal and a good game, the characters are fun and interesting and the plot is not bad but not original either. I recommend this game its fun and you won't regret the time and money invested in the game.
Game Play: 6/10
