Yes. It's a really good game (if you like jrpgs). It has only one problem, lots of missable sidequests. So if you don't mind missing a few, or checking a faq that lists them, I'd say go for it. --- To err is human, but to really screw things up you need a computer! NNID: CodenameGreyFox
It's not rare and expensive. There are about 6 copies nestled neatly in a row on a shelf in my local GameStop store for $29.99.
Should have mentioned that outside US it is.
100% worth it, i actually had a hard time finding it near me in michigan. I back logged it however and i am saving it for my florida trip --- Magistarkyo - PSN; kyoakuma - 360 PSN Profile - http://psnprofiles.com/magistarkyo
Its alright. An average jrpg. Nothing particularly amazing about it and it even really starts to drag in the mid-late game because of a lot of backtracking. Its still worth one play through. I've got a copy sitting at home collecting dust after beating it once. --- http://steamcommunity.com/id/Esrac
