Cross edge is a japanese role playing game that uses the familiar turnbased battle system with a "combo boost" attack to make things more interesting.

Graphics
The graphics in general are ok, however given that this is a PS3 game you can't help but feel disappointed. Most of the talking and conversations (including cutscenes) are done with a static image where the facial expression changes. Again there are a stock number of expressions so get used to seeing the same faces over and over.

Story
Cross Edge features characters from Darkstalkers, Disgaea, Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia, Spectral Souls: Resurrection of the Ethereal Empires, Atelier Marie and Mana Khemia 2: Fall of Alchemy.
The story revolves around 3 central characters (with characters from the games above playing support roles and also play as baddies) who along with dozens of others have been brought to this mysterious world.
The game involves travelling round the map and collecting souls to advance. The ultimate battle is with the Empyreal one and his minions who'll you'll encounter on your journey.

Gameplay
The battle system is a generic turn based system with a combo move while using a square based grid. Generally easy to control although can take some time to get used to the battle. The level of customisation here is literally endless, each character has access to several outfits, hundreds of weapons and accessories plus also a multitude of battle combo's. You will find yourself travelling through the same (or at least very similar) surroundings over and over as you progress with the never ending random battle system.

Overall
I would definately recommend this game to any of the fans of the aforementioned games and fans of Role Playing games in general but this is certainly about the grind of battle and earning your rewards, some people would say the lack of moving characters in cutscenes and the level of commitment needed is too much. If you like RPG's and have 100 hours + to kill then get this over the top frantic game
