I'm sorry but this review is ... well, pretty terrible. There's so much focus on graphics and how 'out dated' the game is, but to be honest with you sometimes the best thing about a game is the story. RPG's follow the same package, the graphics don't always have to mean anything to the level of enjoyment that can be have.
I was more hoping the review would talk about the story and what that's like compared to the rest of the series, and no so much the general appeal of it graphically. Guess I might just have to add it to my shopping list of games to test for myself.
