What is your reasoning behind this? Having read many reviews where in 50 hours only 2 of the eight paths had been completed with the others 50 percent or more to go, how are you not getting bang for your buck?
Having begun playing it myself, the battle system gets very deep while not making you feel overwhelmed and the plot lines themselves are also very interesting. Seeing as how the game has quality writing and gameplay mechanics with easily over 100 hours of play, who in their right mind would think this game is over priced?
Is it because of the art style, and the classical 16 bit setting? If so I feel sorry for you, because this game has more to offer than most of today's flashiest AAA games at base price. If that is not the case, please elaborate because your closed mindedness could leave you missing out big time if you enjoy JRPGs and have no reason to pass on the game outside of "graphics".
