I first played this game when it first appeared which was about 2 years ago now and was instantly hooked.
Its an rpg game (a genre i know and love) but an rpg that is a cut above the rest. It has everything an rpg should have: plenty of side quests, great story line and plenty of game play hours, but the strongest point i feel is the fighting technique. Its the usual time based style, but u can choose to use left or right hands or feet or your head and specific combinations of these allow you to perform very satisfying and visually sweet super combos. All this aswell as your usual magic and summons.
Conclusion - Superb game that any rpg fan should have sitting proudly in their collection
