Keza MacDonald from IGN UK writes:-
"One of the Wii's first and last epic JRPGs is the best thing to emerge from this troubled genre in the past five years."
"It's always possible to innovate within a comfortable and well-established template. Nintendo is traditionally the master of this art, secreting gems of novelty within game designs that are often a decade or two old, perfected through years of iteration. Just because a game conforms in many respects to the conventions of its genre, that doesn't mean it can't do anything new, and it certainly doesn't mean that it can't be wonderful."
