I really enjoyed this game as a nice filler until Final Fantasy arrived, it kept me busy and I really enjoyed the open world exploration.
I played roughly 25 - 30 hours of this game and reached 5 planets, which is amazing as there is another 10 planets to discover, I picked this up and started playing instantly, no tutorials needed, just a very fun active battle system, no learning curve what-so-ever.
RPG fans who feel FF13 is too linear for them may want to take a look at this game, its massive, loads to do and collect.
The graphics are just above standard so dont expect fireworks there, and the camera is very annoying when trying to navigate through caves but thats not often enough to turn into a full complaint, it just doesnt detract from how fun the game is!
The characters are unique and the voice acting is 'ok' for an eastern import.
Sadly I wont be playing this until I have exhausted every avenue in FF13 but rest assured, I will return to this game and complete it. Its a shame the release date was roughly the same time as FF13 as it has been put under the radar. In a couple of months this game will be 15pounds, I highly recommend you try this, as its the second best RPG on the PS3 to date.
