FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

What do these ratings mean?

This game just goes to show you can't trust reviews.  Everyone is different and everyone likes different things.  What appeals to one may not to the next.  I myself was told by an employee the other day as I was about to purchase this game not to.  It was at Gamestop.  They actually pretty much wouldn't let me purchase it because they told me it was so bad.  Well I went back their today and got it anyway.  I thought, man I just want to see for myself what the PS3 released exclusively with this new machine.  And I had read all the reviews on here and in the mags.  And man, I am just so pleasantly surprised I can't tell you.  oK I can tell you.   I'm pleasantly surprised how good this game is!  I don't know why everyone's tripping on this.
     First of all you have to understand it's a Japanese game with Japanese mythology.  I happen to love their mythology (from what I know of it which isn't alot) but I love their ideas and versions of spirits and magic and the Japanese style artwork.  I dig it.    To me this game is like a Japanese version of Lord of the Rings games.  That's the closest thing I can compare it to.  The gameplay is basically the same.  For one thing, the graphics are incredible.  I mean not average.....not better than average, I'm talking incredible.   There's some cut scenes too that will blow your mind.  I like this game cause it's different.  I've never played anything exactly like this.  I've played similar games but nothing just like this.  There's weapons and moves and magic and stuff I've never seen. You can instantly switch between any of your characters and each has different strengths depending on the situation you may need a different character.  Heck I just played it for about 3 or 4 hours at least straight the first time I played it.  And I can't wait to get back into it.  So my recommendation is if you've purchased a Playstation 3, I highly recommend this game because it will showcase some of the power of this console with the awesome graphics and gameplay.  It's definitely worth playing and most places have cut the price down for the used ones to around  45 bucks now so pick it up.
