    Bought this a year ago and beat it today, finally.

    Wow... I really love this game for it's graphics, the Studio Ghibli artstyle and cutscenes, the music and the story... Up until you defeated Shadar that is. The game just felt awfully rushed after that, especially the ending.

    Read up about the matter online and it seems the DS version (Which is exclusive to Japan) ends after the battle with Shadar which would be the perfect ending in my opinion, could even make it kind of a cliffhanger for a possible sequel.

    I had a problem with these things:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Now, don't get me wrong: I really loved playing through this game, much of it captured the essence of playing older JRPGs. This game was much what I wanted Final Fantasy XIII to be: Great characters, story that is easy to understand and relatable, world map with several traveling options like boat, flight and teleporting (Seriously, where are the world maps nowadays?) and an interesting battle system.

    It was sad leaving the characters I came to know and love. Anyone else getting this feeling when they finish an RPG?

    Anyway, I can't be the only one to dislike this ending, right?

    I actually haven't played it but I would like to know on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being best 1 being worst how much did you enjoy it? Considering playing it myself.

    If you like semi turn based RPGS then go for it.

    I'd say 7, but close to 8. The story and the music makes most of the experience. You really feel for Oliver when he loses his mother in the beginning of the game and you want to see him succeed.

    Hmmm.... Might be worth a shot I think I'll give it a go whenever I finish up beating Pokemon Y.
