+Great well made story with a lot of cliches that were actually well done and werent awkward
+Colorful cast of main characters
+A lot of different gameplay mechanics not often seen in RPGs. Magical system is one of the best seen in RPGs.
+A lot of additional non-story things to do such as the casino, the coliseum, etc.
+Studio Ghibli making the art style and design makes this game a beautiful masterpiece
+Voice acting was well made along with the sound effects well done
+Musical score is as amazing as the art style and design
-AI is terrible, they dont even defend and sometimes they stop using their familiars even if they have a reserve.
-Strategy Tactics are pretty much useless, you'll be focusing more on All Out Attack or All Out Defense.
-Familiar choices are limited, stale and repetitive
-Too many fetch quests and walking back and forth
- Unsure whether it was intentional or not but there are horrible delays when using items and sometimes the characters and their familiars stop (uncommon though).
-A Common issue seen in most RPGs that use action RPG elements is the fact that sometimes familiars/characters attack or use a item but it sometimes do not go through or miss completely.
Comparison's sake to other games in the series.
