    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Solid JRPG This being the first JRPG I completed on the PS3 system, I had a feeling it was gonna be a good experience. The characters and the story are really good, the graphics are awesome especially on an HDTV. The controls take a bit to get used to, but once you do the game becomes easier to play. I really liked the battle system it's very different from anything else you'll play especially if you like JRPGs in general. The sound gets a lower 7 because some of the voice acting is terrible, they could have used better actors especially for the younger childlike characters you get. But other than that it's a great game.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Game For Experienced and Novice Gamers I first came across this game when I randomly decided to purchase a game from gamestop nothing particular in mind just wanted something to play and return in a few days. I ended getting a surprisingly enjoyable game that peak my interest for way longer than I expected. Now yes i will say graphics are average and storyline is very predictable and not very in-depth but honestly it was just a fun game. For those of you like myself who are gamers but have friends less than interested in a 80hr gaming experience this works perfect as a intro to rpgs, while still having the option of more intense gameplay to satify the more seasoned gamer. Play this inbetween your annual purchases and main games and you'll find yourself a very enjoyable story and phenominal music n eternal sonata

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best!! This was absolutely one THE best RPG games I have ever played. The music is amazing, the gameplay is awesome. The only thing that I didn't really like about it was that some of the boss's were extremely hard to beat, and sometimes it took me a long time to finally beat them. You have to block at just the right time, or more than half of your life meter will go out, or your character will just die, but overall, this game is AMAZING!! I strongly recomend this game to anyone who love's RPGs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's almost like a dream. The graphics are excellent, the voices are done well, the worlds and places you adventure to are beautiful. I've played many of the rpg's on PS3 and this one is my favorite. The story is really well made and it will make you sad once you finish it. The battle system is great. You control your character for a small amount of time and do attacks and spells etc. Then it moves onto another person on your team or the enemy. It's turn based but it doesn't feel restricting at all since you are able to run around and do whatever you want. The music in this game is absolutely amazing. Some of the songs are by Chopin so they sound really good and many of the other themes in the game are really nice as well. As you complete each chapter in the game, it gives you a small history lesson on what was going on in Chopin's life and you learn a few things about the past. It has some parts that are actually quite hard to beat so you must level up a lot during the game to avoid getting killed instantly. The ending portion is very good and interesting. You will go through many battles and they are hard. For the price now, the game is definitely worth it. It took me just a little over 30 hours to beat and I wish it were longer. There is no other game like this. I highly suggest it if you like rpg's or if you like graphics that make you feel like your part of a dream.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Turn Based Game! The music is absolutely beautiful! So far I love the gameplay and the battling system isn't bad either! I love the changing of special attacks due to it being night or daytime. Great game!!
