Anyone looking for an action-RPG, should pick this game up.
The thing I like most so far (I'm about 5h in), is that the fighting happens in realtime. Turn based is still fun, but this is definitely more 'actiony.' There are also a bunch of side-quests to do from what I've seen, and there are some other neat features (Gem Frame, Spirits). The game isn't party based, but instead you pick a character at the beginning of the game and play that one. This is a plus for me, as I find I get more into the game when I'm just playing a single character, as opposed to commanding a group. The dungeon crawling is a lot like the Zelda games (except more hack-and-slash), and they also contain some basic puzzles. There's even a multiplayer option, that will let you go dungeon crawling with friends.
So, even though I've only done one main quests and a few side-quests, I highly recommend this game if you're looking for an action-RPG game.
P.S. The FMV sequences are very well done too (anime style)
