This is actually a decent game if very very linear but you are stopping every 2 seconds for a cutscene which gets a bit tired after a while looks nice though. It is different from other final fantasy games with a different combat system and battle rules the most annoying of which being that you can only control one character and if they get put down in battle its game over. Normally this would not be so bad but when all of the enemies decide to focus on you at once they can take you from full health to dead basically instantly.
The battle system is a bit clumsy as well having to change the different settings for the characters during battle, e.g. medic, commando, ravager. This would be fine if when someone was set as a medic he would use a basic attack if no one was hurt be he wont, he will just sit around waiting for someone to get hurt or for you to change his job role.
The game in general is not bad, the storyline is difficult to get into because they dont explain it particularly well and you are left trying to work out what cocoon and pulse are and what a lcie is supposed to be. If you are a fan of RPGs picking this up wouldnt be a bad idea for 25 quid or so, you well get plenty of game time out of it. But if you prefer more old school RPG action I would recommend Lost Odyssey on XBOX360 which can be picked up for less than 10 on play and is an absolutely fantastic game.
