Its been many years since the last installment of the legendary, "Final Fantasy", series. All I can say is, it was definitely worth the wait! First, let's talk graphics. The cinematics are as usual, amazing. However, the interesting is that it is very difficult to tell what is cinematics and what is in game graphics. THAT'S IMPRESSIVE! From a gameplay perspective, the battle system has completely overhauled; resulting in fast paced action oriented fights, that never get boring. Characters develop and level up differently than ever before by way of the Crystarium, a variation of the sphere grid from FINAL FANTASY 10. Buy the PS3 version of this title over the XBOX360, because the graphics are actually better on the PS3 version of the game. So whether you're a FF fan or a newcomer to the series, this game definitely doesn't dissapoint. Absolutely a MUST BUY!!!

This game is sick!!!! As always with the final fantasy games, the graphics are stunning. This game however is the best that I have seen in any game I have played, and I've been a gamer since before FFVII. The story is easy to follow and gives you a datalog that you can look up in case you forget what you have been doing. The level up system is different, and the fighting system is similar but completely streamlined. I am about fifteen hours in and I am completeyl impressed. The only reason that I am not playing now is because I need to have a job, but believe me when I tell you that the idea of calling in sick crossed my mind. I am very glad I bought this game.

How does Square Enix keep doing it? 13 games, 13 different battle systems, 13 resounding successes. I doubt anyone with series experience didn't go into this one a bit hesitant (very linear a-la Final Fantasy X? Only control one character in battle?), but if you aren't converted by 30 minutes in I don't understand your gaming preferences :) The presentation is really top notch--characters are just plain awesome. Not a bad one in the bunch--including Vanille, who grows on you. The story is a lot of fun. Cocoon (main floating super-city) is a really cool environment, and likewise Gran Pulse (world below) is equally awesome. The game has been streamlined in a lot of great ways--gone is the 20 second menu-jump to heal characters to full after battle. Gone is the unending wall of mostly-forgettable text spat by NPCs in every town. FF X/XII's minimap design has been overhauled with a lot more helpful info. Levelling is akin to FF X's sphere grid with its own unique twist. It's a great setting with a host of great gameplay systems supporting it. Obviously the main system is the battle system. As noted--you only control your main character, with the sub-chars acting on their own. Given the frantic battle pace, this is truly the only way they could work, as the turn guage fills quickly and choosing between successions of single-enemy attacks, attacks that strike all enemies in range, and quick use of items between attack-turns is truly a full-time job with a single character. The support chars can be commanded to perform different tasks (focused towards healing, focused towards series of weaker combo-guage-building attacks, focused towards poisoning/silencing enemies, etc.) and on the whole the battle sytem is a resounding success. To make things even better, even the 360ers get a chance to experience this game! How great is that? Everyone wins (well--except that the 360 version runs at a lower resolution) this generation! It's a good time to like videogames.
