This is an incredible rpg shooter, the first I have played. The quality in the words of Jensen Ackles "is incredible." The voice acting is top notch, story can be a bit of a mind twist unless you know of the previous titles in the series, and the difficulty can be seriously difficult. There is a few fan service additions to the game - pretty typical of a japanese game these days - but that doesn't shy away from the story or gameplay. One niggle I do hv with this game is the clunky controls that have been ported to the psp system. Hope this gets its time on a home console as an hd remaster, cause the psp doesn't do it justice.
