A random encounter for example may be triggered inside a house, but the battle screen will depict the fight in a woods for example. The game feels unfinished, especially when compare to the detailed worlds and the high degree of polish you see in ‘Breath of Fire’ and ‘Final Fantasy’. Towns are predominantly grass, with identical buildings with identical interiors. Equally repeated is Shigeaki Saegusa’s music, cycling between what feels like six different tracks. They are only catchy because they repeat after a minute, and sound vaguely like better music you can hear in games like ‘Mickey Mouse Magical Quest’.
To import games from Japan, eBay isn't your only option though. I always check on sites like Solaris Japan as often they have a game in stock cheaper than the final price it goes for on eBay. The also have a few gadget that removes any worry of getting charged extra at customs, so they're worth a look.
