I generally don't read review sites. In this particular case, I heard about a game with a premise I found interesting by a company whose RPGs I like (Atlus). The game type (strategy/tactical RPG) appeals to me, so I tried the demo on XBOX live when it was available. Since I liked the demo quite I bit, I bought the game the day it came out. I've put over 20 hours into it so far, and am having a blast.
It's amazing how you can make good decisions when you don't let the internet do your thinking for you. ^_^
(and yes, I did buy it at GameStop, lol)
