Summary: i love squaresoft and this is a good game but the fact of the matter is that you'll spend 1-5 minutes playing the game followed by 2-6 minutes of video and story developement. the actual gameplay is a little sluggish and a let down. on the upside the graphics are a squaresoft standard of quality. so if you don't mind getting into a game and taking breaks every few minutes to watch cutsceens you'll probably like this one.
Summary: when i first got the game i thought that it would be okay. once i started to play it, i found it to be a little [too easy]. granted if you beat the game with one of the three different characters you get a different ending, but other then that the game has very little to offer. on the plus side there is a hot female villan with some real big ... that saved me from trashing the game.
Summary: My friend and I rented this game over vacation, thinking that it would be great. The graphics looked cool and the story sounded interesting. Yes these were both true, but I think we got 30 minutes of game play througout the whole game. The rest were movies. So now jockingly we say to each other, hey lets go watch the bouncer. It is fun to watch, but I wish that there was more playing time.
Summary: If You want to watch a movie, go to blockbuster, or buy this game. If you want to play a game, then get something else. This is not a game it is a movie. You get to play the parts of the movie that involve fighting. This game..er Movie is short, very short. The graphics are mind blowing, we expect nothing less from Square. This is the reason to get Final Fantasy X instead.
Summary: I am glad that I rented this game to try it out first. It's pretty much just a 2 hour movie, and you get to play the fight scenes. You get to choose the point of view that you experience the adventure from - thus revealing hidden secrets of the three different characters. Graphics are wonderful, but long and drawn out. If you die during a fight, you have to skipthrough many movie scenes to get back to where you were. The plot is a bit predictable and overdramatic.
Summary: I thought that this game had great graphics and and controls were nice and easy, but the rest of the game stunk. The story is kinda stupid although it is cool that the story changes a little with each person. The camera angle in parts of the game are horrible, but worst of all is the fact that you can finish the game in an hour and a half or so. So if your thinking about buying it RENT IT FIRST.
Summary: OK, I agree. It LOOKS wonderful! But eye-candy isn't everything when it comes to great games. This is NOT a great game. This is an OK rental game, since it is easy to play. Re-play value stinks except to show your friends.
Lush graphics but there is something missing, gameplay!

Summary: Lets get on with the good things about this movie, great graphics and nice cinemas (hence the two stars and not one star). Now that thats out of the way lets get on with everything wrong about this game. I completed the game in less then a hour, majority of that time was watching very excellent cinemas; but really if I wanted to watch cinemas I would have rented a movie that could go twice as long as this so-called "movie.
Summary: I read the other reviews and I agree with them. It only took me about an hour to beat this game one time through. I was expecting something much much more. The movie sequences are great, as are the actual playing graphics, but too much time is wasted on the movies. Please rent this game before you purchase it (if you even do.
