Really starting to get into this game. Certainly has a couple of flaws, but they are easily overlooked. Don't know if I like the combat system or not, but it certainly is interesting. The cards you get in battle are randomly selected from your deck, so it can be frustrating at times when you can't play any combat cards due to a bad draw. You can pick which cards you put into your deck, but you can't pick which ones are in your hand during combat.
The story is decent, though very much in line with your typical jrpg. A group of teens, out to save the world. One with poor memory of his past. Airships. Spirits, and the recurrent them of when people die they return to the world or "ocean" in this case. The character development is a little shallow, but not as bad as I had heard. The only real annoying thing is the voice acting. It is just plain awful - they have these sound bits that sound as if they were recorded in a tunnel. The voices themselves aren't bad, but the recording is lousy.
Lots of hidden items and strategy - should keep me interested. At this point, I would have to score the game as low AAA.
