    It may not have the emotional impact of some of Square's RPG's, but it does have likeable characters, a huge amount of gameplay, an epic quest, and beautifully rendered environments and effects.

    Finally a game for the pimps in us all.
  3. This is the must-have title for the season, if only because riding your Pimp-N-Ator 4000 into a harbor then blinding the locals with the shine from your pearl walking staff is the sort of adventuring that comes around once in a lifetime.
  4. Great scripting, captivating characters, a good battle system, and two long GD-ROMs worth of game give you the bang for the buck.
  5. Everything is low quality and repetitive, you'll throw the game down in a number of minutes.
  6. There are much better things to spend one's money on. Like root canals.

This game is so different to other RPGs that it deserves more attention; clearly plenty of work was put into this game, from the music, to the settings and story. Full Review »

    Story and game-play are on the elite level, the characters are memorable, the plot is thoroughly thought out. Aside from the great combatStory and game-play are on the elite level, the characters are memorable, the plot is thoroughly thought out. Aside from the great combat system, this game goes even further and gives you an amazing ship to ship battle system, this is perhaps the best and most entertaining side-challenge in an RPG I've ever seen. There is the annoyance of the lack of direction, it sometimes becomes a chore to navigate the many places, but the the game makes up for it with everything else, this is a juggernaut and a must have for RPG fans everywhere.
