yes ive been playin about for at most 20 hours i hardly have anytime anymore for games and the like, but the game so far has not dissappointed, the graphics are great of course for the PS2. Story seems to go places soon enough as it seems that the plot goes everywhere ~_~, but nonetheless go MISTS!!!
^^BEST SIG EVER!!^^
at least final fantasy 13 for ps3 looks great.
OMG god forbid. Tidus looks like a homo too. The series is known for girly looking guys you know. The battle system takes a little longer to get the hang of, but when you do it will be second nature. Turn based is so old, and it's time for change people. What will make you guys happier, if they made the battle system like KH2? As for the story, thank god they are done with the love crap that has been focused in every installment recently.
I haven't played the game yet, but i have been reading some of the reviews from those that have already played the game. Some reviews say that the game is pretty cool and the graphics are great. Although, there are some people that didn't like the game because of the bew battle system. I personally intend to buy the game and see how cool the graphics are. By the way does any one know when FFXIII comes out?
@Bloody Sword: yeah, I know about the gambit system and how it works. It's worked really well for 'random' battles but I've not really had a lot of success with it in boss battles yet. I tend to try to control the entire party in the boss battles because I've never gotten the gambit system to work the way I want. Perhaps I'll get the hang of it the longer the game goes but i'm much more confident with a menu system.
Back when I was playing FF2 (SNES) I would be playing with a friend. I was in the waterways sneaking into Barron castle. I was just blowing everything away, having a great time. My friend couldn't believe how fast I could navigate the menu system. He asked if he could try it (I guess I was making it look so easy) and he was wiped out in one battle. He could not keep up with the enemy ( I had it on active battle).
My point? I can navigate a battle system much more precisely then this gambit system they have going right now. I like micromanaging my combat. I don't like setting up the computer to handle auto healing at< 70%. What if I'm at 71% and what to heal anyway because I know I'm gonna take a hit this round? Can't do that with the gambit system (it least I don't know how to do it if it's possible) and that's what drives me nuts. I love menu driven combat because I control what happens and when. I'm having a hard time doing that in FF12.
Will the battle system dive me away from the game? Absolutely not! I totally love the game and i'm willing to put up with a 'online' battle system for such a cool game.
