The game to me is another Valkyria Chronicles: a product with a standout cartoony aesthetic that garners the game more love than it honestly deserves. The game's a fun romp, but we're honestly playing a pretty average RPG. Next to say, Chrono Trigger or Phantasy Star IV, this game is blatantly inferior in storytelling, character development, gameplay mechanics, etc.
Still having fun though, anyway. Can't say it'll get a replay anytime soon.
