    Great game but a bit too vast. The town is too big and it is hard to find places in it. I love the combat system.

    I agree with all of u. i do amite that the game dose get boring after a while and i agree with the songs being 2 hard in the beginning. the controles arnt 2 hard 2 understand (unless u r an ameture =P). I myself like the game but not too go as far at the 10. the grafics arint perfect and the game desent let u see in some of the corners. oh and andrew A. back off.

    Fun, but confusing, the story is a great one, but to recruit other party members, it takes a lot of time and searching. Wasn't the most explained game, but still a great play.

  1. The few folks with the patience needed to understand the game's design goals and unusual approach will find a game with a lot of depth and a truly offbeat adventure. Those who abhor repetition and like their quests spelled out for them should stay away.
  2. A throwback to the way RPGs used to be made before polygons. With anime-style characters and a firm story and gameplay, this game should be enjoyable for anyone who can get past the graphical weaknesses.
  3. Despite the possibilty of too much repetition or worklike feeling, EF brings the first true traditional RPG to the PS2. The story is interesting, the mini-games unique, the characters vivid and the locations fascinating.
