This is simply my 2nd favorite video game of all time. The story is amazing, the characters are well developed, etc :)
*slight spoilers here* You can play as 6 characters in the game (as you unlock them throughout the story) and each of them have their own fighting style. Each character has their own "Limit Break" which is their special attack. Limit breaks happen in two ways: When a characters health is low (the numbers will appear yellow), or by using the spell "Aura" (which is a very rare spell).
The game features 4 discs which makes this game quite a long one. However if you know what you're doing and do it right then you could beat this game in about 2 weeks (depends on how much you play honestly) If you're a newcomer then it could take you quite a while to get everything. The game features upgradable weapons, multiple side-quests and its just a HUGE game!
FYI: This game is like 50/50 with fans of the series. Im one of the people who love this game. Hopefully you'll love this game the same way I do.
I give this game a solid 10 out of 10 ;D
