I first saw this game at summer camp, one of the kids had a copy and a few of them were playing it just watching 10 minutes of game play and I was hooked, I knew I had to play it! However, this was over a decade ago long after the game was out of print and long before the PSN existed. I searched everywhere I could, though limited at the time by both location and budget (I wasn't going to pay $60 or more on ebay for a used copy!) and after months of looking, long putting the game far in the back of my head, I found a new old stock copy of the game at an EB games for a tolerable price. I told you all this just so that I can say the following: IT WAS ALL WORTH IT!
If you are an RPG fanatic like I am you definitely want to check this out! It has both 2d and 3d elements, a good story, animated cut-scenes, multiple forms of combat (martial arts, swords, gunplay for both your characters and their 'gears') and fun gameplay that will make it worth your while; as well as taking up a lot of time ( I dunno' about you but if I pay $40 or more for an RPG I get pissed when I can beat it in a single weekend or less! [hint,hint Lucas])
The only thing I thought was a little weak was the final boss battle itself (the fight right before it was much more difficult) but that shouldn't de-tur you from playing the game. And now that it's on the PSN you don't have to search hi and low and pay out the nose for a copy!
