    Depends on if you like the series, is a better game than the last 7 but the 3ds had some very bad localization issues due to various reasons, unless you can get a cfw 3ds to play it on and use the restoration patch, is better experience. If not you probably get a lower experience.

    To be honest the restoration patch doesn't alter gameplay but the presentation. If you want more info there is a series of viedos on censored gaming's youtube channel that can explain a bit more of what i mean. :)

    If you don't care about the presentation changes, then is just the same game as ps2 with less appeal. So that is all :P

    Here is a video explaining how members here (YES AT GBATEMP) restore ps2 quality of the game. :D
