GR+ Live: Will our I Am Setsuna playthrough recapture classic Squaresoft magic?

I Am Setsuna is the first role-playing game from Tokyo RPG Factory, the Square-Enix studio opened solely to create JRPGs in the mold of those '90s classics that made both Square and Enix famous before they merged. Does it capture those classic qualities we discussed in depth last week in our study of Super Mario RPG?  We played through the first 90 minutes of the game to find out.
