You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

It is open world but I the map isn't as big as other open world games, but that's not really an issue as it helps you to complete more of the story and to spend time leveling up the character you control. I love how the game instantly switches game style in real time making the game more action orientated than just a traditional RPG. The story is amazing and the boss fights are really though. I would recommend this game to those looking for an action RPG a genera that sadly needs more games."
