Good to know. I will also say that I'm not exactly against the whole character swapping in this game. I think it's a matter of just accepting the game for what it is rather than what I wanted it to be out of a FF game. It's still not in the upper echelon of FF games but it's a fun JRPG.
The only real issue I've had with the game so far is a couple of enemies that insta kill me out of nowhere before I can figure out how to kill them (like those motorcycles in Chapter 7).
