Fun gameplay, also comes with flaws.

The gameplay is almost comparable to the .hack series, not the online/offline aspect but more the hack and slash to level up feel. You start in town, do one quest then are put in town, where you have your typical shop (sells weapons, and armor), tavern (recruit mercs to group up with you to fight), crazy priest (save game and teleport to other areas), your house (store items, money and change hairstyle), and wi-fi connection (play with friends and complete quests/level together). I am yet to try the multiplayer since the Wii friend codes system sucks complete ass.
You have starting classes such as: fighter, thief, priest, mage and bard. There are also advanced jobs (ffxi much?) such as: knight, archer, anchor, ninja, engineer, godhand and samurai. You have spells and skills you can learn with each class, as well as the ability to change jobs whenever you go into town (major plus++).
Negative parts about the game are the horrible dialogue, your character constantly nods, and says "..." and the NPC will continue as if you said an entire paragraph to him. The item icons are kinda generic and the same is with the skill/spell icons. These are all just tiny things that don't actually disrupt gameplay, but are just annoying to constantly look at.
Overall: Fun game, one of the best RPGs on the Wii in my opinion. Just my 2c!
