My RPG experience extends as far as Lost Odyssey to the Final Fantasy series and even a couple LOTR games and this one is definitely one of my favorites. A big thing for me is the amount of gameplay I can get out of the game, and then the replay value. I was happy to see that my first runthrough took 50+ hours with little to no sidequests. The sidequests themselves can take up to that long, providing solid replay value. The actual battle system itself is also very deep and enjoyable. The difficulty is good, with different settings that each are rewarding in different ways. The different skills, magic, parties, enemies, and dialogue keep the battles interesting. The story was surprisingly deep and the characters just as much. While the character development wasn't too deep the characters personalities were well designed. I will say it again that this is one of my favorite RPG's and also the best one out on the 360 and every RPG fan should have a copy of this game.
