Clocked up 42 hours so far in this game and I'm at near the end. Have enjoyed it and feels like I'm playing a fantasy JRPG even though it's in a WW2 setting with guns instead of swords, don't miss it

I have it too , it's awesome and im not a fan of Final Fantasy and all that orc and wizard bull . Great story , beautiful art style (the game is like a big watercolour) and hours and hours of gametime plus there is a fair bit of DLC on the PSN store.

Thuroughly enjoyable, excellent strategy title. Demo on the PSN should you want to have a go first.

This game is great, I'd totally recommend it.

Have finished this game, great fun, was hooked after playing the demo

As I have watched the anime first, I was disappointed at how the game was like. The faces in the game didn't match the faces from the anime. And graphics looked too cell shaded.

Got this for a tenner a while back, sold it straight away. Terrible game

The game came first and it's fantastic. I don't think this will be a problem for too many people...

Agree with the.tourist on this one, not my kind of game at all

It's not a terrible game, it's probably just not the type of game you were expecting and it's either not for you or you didn't give it a chance. There's a demo on PSN if people are interested. The game is a sleeper hit and has got a lot of critical acclaim, 86 average on Metacritic

I played the game first and I was disappointed with how the anime was. The art direction and character design in the anime was terribly sloppy. Selveria is a beauty in the game but in the anime ranks among some of the most ugly characters (in addition it looks like they increased her already ridiculous bust). Not to mention the plot was altered heavily and ended up worse as a result, especially the (I'll avoid spoilers here) ending. As I want to avoid spoilers I'll just say the game had a wonderfully cinematic and touching ending that the anime just scrapped entirely.

Either way fantastic game.

If you own a PS3 you should be asking yourself why you don't own this game already, if you don't own a PS3 you should be asking yourself why you don't own one for this game already.

I'm by no means a strategy fan, but after giving the demo a go I liked it. Might grab this. Voted hot.
