  1. While the battle system is solid, the battles themselves are dreadfully boring.

    The characters and the trials they face simply aren’t cut out for the game they inhabit, and the game feels shallow and incomplete as a result.

    Picked this game up again after 7 years and it still feels fantastic. It aged well and I am having just as much fun with it this time around.Picked this game up again after 7 years and it still feels fantastic.

    I liked it a lot because it was so realistic it felt as though you were living the trilogy.
