    I rented it and got bored before the end of the 2nd chapter. It's not a bad game and the story is told fairly well, but it just doesn't capture you the way an RPG is supposed to in my opinion. You're probably better off waiting for FFXIII or getting a 360 and playing Lost Odyssey.

    I personally thought :bowdown:. I haven't had so much fun with an SRPG since FFT.

    I love the game. One of the main reasons I got a PS3. Still play it off and on.

    Chapter 7 is a fucking bitch. But thats when the game gets really good.

    cool game, but i lost interests early on. the battles are so long and drawn out. even setting up for a battle takes a while.

    I think I'll end up giving it a rent first to see if I like it, and then buy it... I really enjoyed the demo though. Those kind of games are cool. Unfortunately, the PS3 does not have as many RPGs as I'd like it to :\

    Have you played the demo?

    Great game, worth a rental for sure - though youll probably end up buying it just to get thru the story/end. Battles get longer and longer, which made it difficult to finish given lack of huge blocks of free time.

    Almost finished with it, about 40 hours in playing here and there. It's a lot of fun. The only thing that bugs me is that you don't really need to use all the character types. If you're good you can get by most missions with just a few scouts and an engineer. I would have liked to see the snipers and lancers be a more necessary part of the game, but using them (especially snipers, most of my kills are made with them) does make missions a lot easier.

    Easily one of my top games from last year though, at least give it a rental
