I havent played this game seriously for a long time. After remembering that the last reason I didnt like the game was because I played real time. I now just kicked it up in turnbased mode and the game is awesome and a gem of a game.
Truth be told, I am an extremely hard to please person with regards to rpgs as I am very picky.
Its crazy that after 6 years, this game is still great and a lot of fun to play.
