world map?

How is the world map in this game? Youtube doesn't work on my laptop for some reason, video plays for 2 seconds then goes white...

Is it like

Symphonia/Abyss/Legendia/Vesperia/Destiny 2/Eternia
or
Graces F
or
Symphonia 2

Please, not like symphonia 2. If it's full world map like abyss/vesperia etc thats awesome, if its like graces f thats fine too.

thanks in advance.

Like Graces f, but with bigger areas and movable camera.

inb4 the environments are empty and look same, or other **** people pull out of their asses.

Lol , thanks. I don't mind overused world map environments, as long as the dungeons n towns are different.

Well, the ports look kinda of identical, but the dungeons and towns definitely not.

Yep, like Graces, but you get the "airship/teleport/warp" whatever it is VERY early in the game :)

To be fair, one can argue the lack of equipment found.
And the scope of places, with how the environments are sort of closed off and not like Xenoblade for example (though not many JRPGs are) and I don't see it as a big deal.

Still, I maintain that they can be gorgeous (ie. Kijara Seafalls).

The lack of finding anything interesting was one of my biggest problems. And while there are some pretty neat/unique areas (The Seafalls DID look nice....but for some reason, I just never really liked that area) but there are a lot of really same-y plains areas.

There are. Even those filled with snow look similar to the plains in the beginning.
I don't mind it, since on a world map you'll also have same-y areas (Abyss' world map comes to mind).

...ok, there are valid complaints to be had. I blame myself for being grumpy in the morning when I posted that first comment. Sorry.

I didn't mind the relatively plain and repetitive areas but the hidden tunnels with chests made my OCD go into overdrive. It probably doubled my playtime just making sure I found them all haha
