the fighting isn't that bad. kinda ff ish but with kicks.
you see the enemy on the field and there are icons above the enemy.
if it is weaker there is a icon for it the same as is stronger or if it doesnt notice you.
you have to walk up to it and start fighting or it walks up to you.
its turned based and you can plan out your moves. its all the same as others, ya got your regular fighting and your magic.
and you got special moves items and the such.
the visuals are actually pretty the sounds are good.
it also has decent hit mods and attack percents.
you gain money or a form of and exp. and monsters tend to drop items.
for the first american real rpg its not bad. very pleasing to the eyes.
almost forgot, you can save anywhere in te game.
