It is a good game. I've played my sister's before. I think the reason many people don't like it is because of the graphics. They're not as great as other games out there. Personally, I could really care less about the graphics. Sure they're nice to look at but it's the storyline that's the most important part, imo.
You would not believe how difficult it was to get the game in Newfoundland. I actually had to order Okage, InuYasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask, and Ys: The Ark of Napishtim through ebgames.com because I could not find them around where I lives at all.
