Seriously, if they're taking that much time to review this game, I'd love the hear a reason. Even if is a ridiculous one as "Genre is not popular, we only do that to big name mp shooters and over the shoulder third person adventure games", I'd rather have a word, or a 'review in progress'. And even if Tales of Graces F was shody.
You opinion won't be serious in any stretch until you really play the game. Seriously, even the title of this forum is pretentious. I won't tell you what to do with your money, that's your decision, but I might drop an advice to what you have to do with your time: stop putting this kind of trash of games you never played and play more of them. Less writin' more gamin'... maybe you'll give solid ground to your opinions that way instead of just this stammering crap that only calls flames... I mean.... basic advices like this one. =D You don't want to be like those ridicule JRPG whores that claim every shooter is overrated do you?
I can recommend you Tales of Graces F in playstation 3 if you want actual real time battles. If you are or were a action gamer it's an easier transition that way. Story wise it's good, but other RPGs mentioned before maybe have better one, so it won't ruin the rest of universe RPG story-wise, unless you grab RPGs with bad story. Also I can give you the same recommendation with Odins Sphere of Playstation2. You can get it on PSN store for Playstation 3, great combat and interesting item managment.
