Here is your generic JRPG.
Though, it has beautiful music, a catchy battle theme and a great story concept, the story is almost non existent.
75% of the time, you will be in the same three zones, grinding through monsters.
And that's pretty much it.
The other 25% you will get a little bit of the story, and some character who orders you to go back again to the zones you were already three time through.
An spoiler-free example:
Someone mentions, that this girl wants a word with you, so you head to her home.
The girl isn't there but you can talk to some stranger in her house, who tells you that she is in the flat of that dude upstairs.
So you go upstairs, only to find out she and that dude aren't there either.
Gladly, another random person tells you they are both at a top secret place, and because he's a nice guy he will tell you where it is.
IF you bring him this stone, which is unfortunately at the end of a place you already been three times.
To reach this place, you have to grind two other areas, which you been obviously too, in the past.
There is this super important tower which you have to get to immediately.
But first, you have to get a few items, from the zones mentiond above already.
Once you recover the items, you may notice, that you bought these exact ones about an hour ago in the town.
So yeah, thanks for nothing, let's head finally to the tower now.
This basically the gameplay.
Someone tells you to grind through those three zones, you go back, to another port of your hometown, only to get told to go through the damn three zones again.
Sounds a bit harsh, but really: this games doesn't deserve more than 2 out of 10 points.
Especially with that price, which is way to high.
