An AMAZING RPG game that any PS1 owner should have!
i got this for free along with Star Ocean on the PS1 as well, and at the time i never heard of this game (i grew up with Nintendo), so when i had the time i popped this game in and i instantly was hooked. this game is awesome, the combat mechanics are very good and the animation is good too. though if you have your PS1 hooked up to an HDTV the pixies of the characters look horrible up close, but further they look beautiful. the only downside to this game are two things: cut scenes and difficulty. while i don't mind it so much because the story and character's intrigue me, other may not like the fact that this game is cut scenes and dialogue heavy. the other is that combat, especially with boss fights are hard at times, i haven't died as much, the game throws so much at you that, while if you're smart you'll win but barely, this is true with the Gears combat.
overall, highly recommend this game to anyone, this game can also be downloaded on the PS3 PSN, so you have no reason on missing out on this great title!
