I'm 36 hours into it right now.

It's a no-frills SRPG that's got a pretty decent battle system. If you can't read Japanese you're screwed; there's a sparse amount of voice and no FMVs/cut scenes. BM2 is a lot of text. The only reason why this matters for this game is because previous installments in the B/M series had no problem providing things like this (hiring A-list seiyu for the voices, etc) previously.

I'd only recommend this game to people that:
a) Haven't played a previous B/M title yet
b) Are hard pressed for an SRPG game on PS2 that isn't from Banpresto.

I'm about 36 hours into this as well (mission 4 I believe). I havn't really played any of the earlier games, although I've played alot of these type of sRPGs. My impression is somewhat mixed. On the one hand its been a while since I played these type of turn based sRPGs using the grid system, so I rather like it. On the other hand I find this game somewhat tedious with you always having to use BP, and always having to refill the BP after every battle. Further, the magic usage is weapon based, and very limited. Overall I'd say I'd agree with Famitsu's score.
