I love JRPG's, but as far as this series I've only played Nocturne before. I got decently far before i got ended putting it down because of school-based time constraints. It might have been a little on the difficult side for me, but it was bearable. How does this compare in terms of challenge? And is the story/soundtrack good?

If you played Nocturne then you pretty much have a good experience to play this game. Not a bad game, and I heard they improved upon some of the Nocturne's mechanics.

It's wonderful. Great setting + battle system at a really good difficulty. My only complaint is that navigation gets annoying at times

Fantastic im replaying it now and i pass the part i left off at before losing my data. The music is awesome,, i havent found a song i havent enjoyed yet. Im not really in tuned with the story, so i cant really put any input. The beginning was hard to start but it eventually gets easier

Since you played Nocturne and found it bearable, you may be able to enjoy this as well. It plays a little different, but once you get the hang of it, it isn't so bad. This game has no real way to mitigate damage past being able to resist, null, or reflect stuff. The game is rough in the beginning because of how fragile you are. I liked Nocturne better, but this game is definitely worth it. At least the fusions and move sets are easier to do.

At 20 bucks for the cart, hell yes it is worth it!

Definitely, and if you still have issues with difficulty, Easy Mode is unlockable. Hehe, I wasn't afraid to take the easy road.
If people want the Wii U Cheaper, and the cost of the White model is already the price of the 3DS XL, are they saying they want it the same price as a 3DS?

I'm not seeing it. I put it in my cart and it goes back to the 39.99 pricing..

Beginning is difficult, but then gets easier after the first few areas. Good game.
