I bought Summoner, and played it for a short while, and it seemed to be pretty good as RPG's go. There are some software glitches, but that is to be expected for one of the first games out. I have not played a whole lot since I have been denied the pleasure of owning a memory card, and it seems to be a very complex game. I refuse to put hours into the game just to have to redo them once I get a memory card.
Summoner has towns 1000x the size of Final Fantasy 8. Bigger than Daggerfall's towns. HELLA sidequests to go along side the main quest. the battle system is sorta like Vagrant Story. so far its Very Good
