I enjoyed what I played of the game on PS2, but my wife was *really* addicted. I never beat it, and ironically enough I kept thinking "Man, I wish this was portable" every time I'd play it. It's the kind of game I love to take with me and play everywhere I can. It's getting rough for me to finish RPGs at home now.
I really want to order this in Japanese, though, which sucks because I'm nowhere even close to being able to read anything. It would take me 20 minutes to attempt to translate each sentence. I'm guessing I'd need at least a year of study to be able to so much as barely muddle through it, and I'm only just at about 3 months now. Arg.
