Animation - It features absolutely breathtaking animation that appeals to all ages.
Music and Soundtrack - It has a wonderful full sound to it. It features full orchestra pieces of music. This makes it feel like you are inside a movie.
Gameplay - I have just begun to play the game but thus far the gameplay is fairly straightforward and very creative. The in-game guide( in the persona of Drippy the hero's sidekick) gives you a full and complete explanation of all game mechanics.
I absolutely love all games that Level 5 has done. You will will really appreciate this title if you enjoyed Dragon Quest VIII. This title features the same rich animation, sound, and gameplay as its predecessor. I also enjoyed such Level 5 titles as Dark Cloud 1 and 2 and Rogue Galaxy. Level 5 isn't necessarily a prolific game maker but each title it puts out is a quality well done masterpiece. You are sure to truly enjoy this title!
The bosses are actually challenging at times. I have played a lot of RPGs that I never died in, but this one I had to redo a boss battle or two. The normal combat isn't usually challenging, but it isn't tedious either.
All that being said, there isn't really anything innovative about this game. I might have enjoyed it a little more if there weren't so many familiars to choose from, but instead they were fewer and harder to come by.
If you are looking for a shorter game this probably won't be it for you since it is a very time consuming game, but if you are looking for a game that can last you a while this is it.
-Original battle system that isn't just button mash
-Very interesting story-line that is also tear-jerking
-Very sweet main character and gang.
-Soundtrack is very good.
-Oliver's voice acting can be grating
-If you don't have much patience, the start of the game can be a drag.
- Not as much voice cut-scene as I liked, mostly used text version.
-Oliver's voice can be grating.
I'll suggest this to anybody who is looking for a nice fulling game at a great cheap price.
Edit after I finish the game ----------------------------
After I finish the game I'll give more perspective
-The story should be the main reason you enjoy the game. Which means to me after you finish the game, it's a hard game to immediately replay. Once you know all the twist and turn of the tale and due to the very lengthy gametime, makes it a game where you'll play it again after a couple of months break.
-I'll say the battle system is pretty skill intensive for 85% of the game. The middle 85% mark is when Oliver isn't too overpowered and you need to strategically know how to use your familiars to attack and also knowing when to be Oliver for defense. By the end of the game, Oliver gets so overpowered and the enemies become so much stronger, that I was basically Oliver for 98% of the back-end boss fights due to his insane power level. I'm not saying you can't use your familiars, but it becomes more efficient to just be Oliver. Again that could be just me but I'm not sure.
-There is a post-game save section where after you finished the game story-line but if you aren't into all the side-quest of the game then there isn't much to do unless you want to go sight seeing.
-Another note on the battle system is that it can get irritating if you are playing for a while and I have had instance where needed to put the controller down due to me not wanting to here that battle music 1 more time.
-There is 1 boss battle in the game that feels like it should be the final boss due to how the story-line is built. It makes that boss fight have the feel of an epic boss but then it wasn't the end which is kinda deflating.
-Overall I'll still highly recommend the game like my original post, but I do think it's fair to point out some more fair criticism I had to give to help the other readers make a proper choice.
