I've always liked Strategy games - and hence picking this game up was no surprise. What does surprise is wondering why this is a Wii game when it doesn't really use any of the Wii controls / movement.
It is an addictive RPG strategy which (I'm playing at medium level) is quite difficult and challenging especially if you don't want any of your characters to die! I certainly recommend it but doubt non-strategy fans will like it and not sure it appeals to the wider Wii fanbase.
A good if childlike guide is available and it's just a shame not more background is given to character growth / experience / weapons / mods etc and what you might require. On other hand this you pick up as you go, relatively simply.
I can't wait to get back and finish it...
Very beautiful movie story cut-scenes (japanese cartoon style) add to the feeling of the story as you progress but the graphics during battle time (turn based) from up high could have been improved on - reminded me of the C64!
4/5 for startegy / thinking / addictiveness
1/5 for using wii strengths
2/5 for graphics (movies nice but in game is where you spend most your time)
