I got this game when I was 13, when my friend kept going on about how good it was! As soon as i got it, i was delighted to find that you could create your very own character suited to your taste! The game starts with simple tasks, drawing you into the game and then it gets harder gradually, which i think is a very convenient because if it starts to hard you just give up before you've started.
I like the fact that you don't just have characters joining you along the way, you can create up to 8 party members and you can choose your vocation! It makes you feel like your really controlling the game. You also have an amazing collection of clothes that you can buy or find, and certain clothes give you powers!
If you need a break from the main story line, there is lots and lots of sub plots, sum important and some not so important. These are call quests, and you can win stuff from them!
Overall, this is an excellent game and i have been playing it for 2 years now and am still not tired of it! If you really want an in depth game to get really get stuck in, this is the game for you!!!!!!
