You can explore the world non chronologically it would seem as long as you're skilled enough, and though you do discover things about your characters, the main focus seems to be exploring and filling in the maps (which is auto done for you - no drawing them here like in Etrian Odyssey).
The combat is also immensely satisfying, but can be brutal making saving regularly essential from the get go. I'm looking forward to getting back in to this, but I'm currently focussing on...
...Stella Glow, another stunning delivery from Atlus again with beautifully hand drawn characters and maps, with 3D battles. Predictably, I plumped for a gorgeous looking collector's edition (actually twice, accidentally ordering it twice...), with art book and CD soundtrack. This time, the game feels more story focussed, but it's light enough to remember what's going on at most times and what's more the game gives you a short summary as to what you've been up to every time you load up. Useful!
