i can confirm it is Story not History lol. But more importantly its worth it if you dont want a typical hack-n-slash RPG for boss fights. For instance, one boss, you have tohide on a balcony type structure and slash at him in order to have an opportunity to do real damage to him. On top of that, the characters are engaging and entertaining.
In my books, this is a game that if localised, the money has to be spent on quality voice actors/actresses otherwise itd be a disappointment. That said, online is fun. The armour and weapon one of your character is wearing gets used in online modes.
