Hippo Penny - Here's my take on Vagrant Story. Buckle up, folks, as I'm about to dive into the world of this critically acclaimed action RPG.

Let me get this out of the way – Vagrant Story is a big game, and not just because of its enormous file size (over 2GB, folks! That's like downloading a small movie). No, what makes it huge is its ambition. It wants to be everything at once: an action-packed thrill ride, a deep RPG with complex characters, and a work of art that'll make you stop and gaze in wonder.

Now, I know some critics have gone full-on fanboy mode (ahem, IGN), calling it "a true classic" and "one of the greatest games ever made." Me? I'm more of a "it's-a-good-game-but-let's-not-get-too-crazy" kind of guy. But hey, when you're playing a game that's this immersive, it's hard not to get swept up in the hype.

The combat system is a blast – pun intended. It's fast-paced and intense, with a perfect balance between strategy and button-mashing chaos. And don't even get me started on the customization options. I mean, I'm no Square Enix expert, but it seems like they took all their favorite RPG features, tossed them into a blender, and hit puree.

Of course, not everyone's going to love Vagrant Story. Spank! (I kid thee not – that's actually the name of one of the critics) points out some initial difficulty and repetition, which might have you wondering if it's all worth it. And hey, they're right – it's not for everyone.

But for those who do click with Vagrant Story, oh boy... It's a game that'll hook you from the start and never let go. So, if you're looking for an adventure that'll challenge your skills, test your patience, and maybe even make you cry (don't ask), then Vagrant Story is the game for you.

P.S. – If I were GamePro, I'd give it a 100%, but hey, I'm just a humble seasonal grok reviewer.
