A great RPG for dirt cheap ($4.99 at Gamestop) that you should definitly add to your PS2 library if you haven't already.
On the way in your huge quest to accomplish something Kharg never expected (don't want to spoil), you will find a huge cast of characters. The design of the world and characters are a little generic though. The way the game tells the story makes it better. Bad animations and uninspired characters and designs would make the graphics, well, bad if there weren't any awesome building structures and environmental textures in the game. Good thing there is. The decent soundtrack can go pretty well with the current setting and mood. The only difference in the gameplay from an average RPG is it's battle system. It has you controling one player at a time in a turn-based battle. The character has a movement range, which differs from character to character, and a attack range, depending on the weapon (or magic, hand, etc), like a knife tied to string, claw, bow and arrow, blade, etc. The game lasts a good long time if you try to beat it. There aren't many sidequests though and secondary activities aren't encouraged. But there are secret characters worth unlocking. Overall, it's a great game but has some minor problems and some missed opportunities to add more to make it a stand-out RPG. You should still get though if you haven't. Arc The Lad: Twilight Of Spirits is a great RPG for dirt cheap ($4.99 at Gamestop) that you should definitly add to your PS2 library if you haven't already.
