The story is very unique as well, mainly because of the many side-quests and plot twists. As Sanzo nears the end of his journey, secrets about himself, the purpose of the journey and many more interesting events will occur, leading to a very exciting and engaging experience. The only difference is that there are no random battles once an area is cleared. The only time there are battles is if you enter the location for the 1st time or when you are doing a job from a Post.
In some towns, players can purchase equipment, train in a dojo for experience, upgrade weapons at the smith, get jobs at the post, or play a game of cards for prizes. Especially interesting are the jobs at Posts, where you can get jobs for simple delivery of goods that reward you with gold or unlock many side-quests that reward you with more gold, great items and more character development!
Battles in the game follow Final Fantasy Tactics as well, the maps are smaller, though, and the battle party is limited to 6 characters at a time. Characters move according to their speed and can attack, cast spells or use their special abilities, namely Guardian Summoning which only Sanzo can use, while the other characters transform into their Wereforms. Wereforms are the true forms of the characters that join and they can give a great advantage in battles.
For instance, Son Goku transforms into the Great Ape. Only one Werechange can occur each time and other characters can only transform if the one who transformed changes back.

Characters are also limited by the Were Gauge. When someone performs a Were change, it begins to deplete the Gauge. Once it runs out, the character reverts to normal and no other characters can change anymore as the Gauge cannot be replenished until the battle ends. This pretty much balances this relatively easy game though.
Sanzo, however, cannot Werechange, but he can summon Guardians. When a Guardian is summoned, it gives all characters in the party a beneficial boost, such as restoring HP every turn or improving status. Characters nearer to Sanzo get a bigger boost. Guardians last 3 turns before Sanzo has to summon them again. Some maps have tricky twists and gimmicks, though, which really add to the fun. This may be hard due to the fact that all the enemies charge at you like kamikazes.
The battles also follow another simple rule, attacking from behind, from the side, from higher elevations, or with an element they are weak against will deal more damage. Wood beats Earth; Earth beats Water and so on. Characters are also more skilled at using Magic Scrolls that are under their element.
There is no buying of new weapons in the game. Characters generally start with their own unique weapon, which can be upgraded only at smiths.
