I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

What do these ratings mean?

The first thing I would like to say is I found the reset button on my wii.  When I first started playing this game I had high expectations for it.  In the beginning, it delivered. Until I went to chapter 3 I believe it was, and sat there for two hours playing one level.  The reason for that was you quickly discover that not all your players are created equal.  In Part 1 you play as a grouped called the dawn brigade.  There leader is Michah, you also play as Nolan, Soki, Edward and Leo; you get others along the way but those are the chief characters. You soon discover that the only people out of the 10 or 11 guys you play with, which can survive most than one hit are Soki, Nolan and Edward.  Now this fact puts a damper on character development because those three with get 90% of your in-game exp.  It is a RPG, yes, but I would say honestly plays more like a chess game you have three queens and the rest are pawns.

In Part 2 you play mainly as Brom and some chick who’s name starts with an N.  You later go to the kingdom and get a ton of other people to play with.  This really, is when the game hits its stride.  You inherit much stronger players so the paced at which you can play is solid.  Then you meet the Royal Knights lead by Geoffrey, which everyone of them are excellent fighters, and you also play full time with Haar who is the coolest dude in the game. At the end of chapter 2 you are introduced to The Griel Mercenaries who you will play as in Part 3. 

Part 3 starts, you once again have new people which by now will be getting on your nerves.  The Griel Mercenaries are lead by Ike.  Once again all the characters you get here kick some serious arse.  But soon you find out that you are fighting against the dawn brigade.  Then heart break sets in you have to play as the dawn Brigade.  They are all  weak fighting characters now, they can all be pwn'd by getting hit once, minus soki and the lance guy with white amour.  It was at that point I stopped playing the game because it was taking way to long to win with no one dieing and I had all ready busted 2 wii remotes at that time.

 

One cool thing I will say about the game is you can craft you own weapons and Name them =D

So if you are looking for a RPG with some depth and you like incredibly hard games and you don't mind switching characters all the time, then this game is for you.

I will say though, I would for sure give this game a rent, for sure rent before you buy it.
