I want so much to be able to enjoy this series. I love absolutely everything about it apart from the gameplay. Music and art are exceptional, the worlds are massive and I want to explore every bit of them and the stories have always interested me but I can’t get past that battle system. I’ve tried the first game on both Wii and New 3DS and couldn’t get on with the battles; then when 2 came out I really tried to get into it and enjoyed it for a spell but it just seemed to add new mechanics to an already complicated system so regularly that I just had enough of it. I’m not a huge JRPG fan but the most recent ones I played were No No Kuni and DQXI and both were so well balanced between simplicity and depth that I was never turned off from them. Just watching the gameplay in this review got close to giving me an aneurysm.
