It's on sale at Best Buy and I was wondering if any RPGers have played it yet...

I mean, it's Square and Enix, you can't go wrong with that, right?

I've heard good things about it, but haven't played it yet. Plus is Square, so there's a good chance its good by default. I'll be renting it first as soon as I can.

Actually, this was developed completely by the Enix half of the company (through the team "cavia"), Square didn't have anything to do with it at all. It's not even really an RPG. More of an action game with superficial RPG elements. (Experience Points)

The closest comparison to the game would be the Dynasty Warriors series on PS2, so if you liked those and Chaos Legion, there's a good chance you'll like this, too.

I have been playing it off/on, right before I go to sleep. The graphics are tight and the story seems pretty cool so far but it's way too repetitive.

It's more like Dynasty Warriors or Kessen than anything else. The idea of using dragons is pretty cool. But the dragons' abilities are waaayyy to limited.

They look cool and can breathe fire and stuff. But they cannot pick up and drop things or any type of physical attack so far. It's worth a looksee if you have the time and interest. But I'd advise renting it before buying this one.

I said I would rent it, and I did, and I'm on my way to buy a copy this weekend. The game is awesome, and after playing a few RPGs recently, the action is a nice break. Graphics are outstanding, as can easily be seen in the commercials. Story is quite good (at least in the beginning, havent gotten more than a few hours in) and not as boring and cliched as most action/fantasy games. The gameplay is pretty easy to get used to, not a very long learning curve.

Overall, from what I've seen, I'll give it a 7.5/10.
