If you like a good JRPG... hell yeah. It has decent story the battle mode is fun and the world is simply gargantuan and open. It really is the first JRPG I've ever played that feels like it's a genuine upgrade to the formula of jrpg. You can warp to any place you've visited at any time, death does not lose progress and battles are not random in the least. The story elements have many cool upgrades. I was only 20 hours in when I got through but it is just a beautiful AAA Jrpg. Why I had to import it to play it boggles my mind. This should be here now.
