Here is a brief overview of the game, via Square Enix:
With the memory of their struggle buried deep in their hearts…
In this hard-core action RPG, Jack must hazard numerous challenges to bring the light of the crystals back to Cornelia, a kingdom conquered by darkness.
Fight your way through fierce battles with a variety of means to defeat your enemies. With multiple difficulty options and a wide selection of jobs and weapons available to customize your party, you can choose exactly how you want to play.
Will restoring the crystals’ light usher in peace or a new form of darkness?… Or perhaps something else entirely?
