The attention to detail in Breath of Fire IV is phenomenal. Everything from the animations to the world feels like it wis deeply thought about. It's a shame not many people look into the symbolism and such, it is pretty impressive learning about it.

I doubt it's in realtime. As a game dev I gotta ask, did they load all the different tracks into memory to cut to the different locations so quick? I would assume that is a video. But I could be wrong, as they didn'T need to load the shitty ridge racer 'physics' and the no fun racing engine or cars. So they might only loaded the bare tracks for the intro animation for some fancy cuts.
