Problems not so glaring as video review says.

The game is a traditional JRPG so if that doesn't appeal to you stay away from Lost Odyssey. Also, it plays more like a film with player stats than a game for the first 3 discs, but I hear it opens up on the 4th. If you are looking for this classic style do not let the review nay-sayers drive you away. It's a fun and slightly more mature RPG, with a great story.
Think of it as the pinnacle of the classic JRPG style in terms of story, graphics, magic and characters and you'll be happy.
