This game was strange for me. The gameplay presents one of the most amazing and innovative systems I've seen drawing upon common systems (elemental, card based, combos) but implementing them all in a way that will make you more addicted to the game the longer you play. At the beginning I hated this game. I hated every character save 1 and the only thing that kept me playing was the battle mode, even though I wasn't sure how long that would last. After completing the game I am so impressed by both the story and gameplay that I started over to play through it again! this is actually a 40 hour game too; a rarity among games out for the Cube. I wish they had more RPG's on the console and this one, although not the best game ever, is still very solid.
