Amazing escape from reality
20 July 2009 | by glanesbSee all my reviews

I have seen and read so many mixed reviews on this. One day I was watching a news report from a Japanese mall. There were people lined up literally for blocks and blocks just waiting to get there hands on this game. I said.....OK...

It is not a perfect RPG but WOW.....this game does a wonderful job in taking you away from it all. YES, the characters can be cutesy and annoying ( 'KAY' ) but hey guys......it does the job. With much innuendo and brilliant graphics..it is well worth the price!! Especially with the choices out there now for a good RPG. The wait for FF13 has been very grueling but this piece has definitely taken up the time with grace and enjoyment. Memorable and I am wanting more!!! I say "Great Job"
