This is an rpg that many lame western developers can learn from, graphics are simply not everything
All in all:
Graphics: 8/10 Nothing special, but the boss battles are definitly impressive visually
Soundtrack: 10/10 Unbelieveble OSTs, YS is one the few serieses which i actually browse for the mp3s and download!
Gameplay:9.0/10 The battle system is quite common among jrpg's but the customizations and new characters that come to you as you progress just motivates you take every battle seriously, and gain levels
Replay value: 6/10 Unfortunately, this is one of the games i probably won't repeat till years to come but YS 7 definitly inspired me to experience more of YS
Conclusion: I highly recommend this game, it a hackk and slash RPG with a superb stroyline and OST, something that western developers should really take in consideration, meaning you too gamespot!
