Summary: I liked that there was an ending to lighting's story, but the actual plot isn't very good and doesn't flow very believably. The new battle system is cool, but the customization is more limited than I had anticipated and the battles don't hold much difficulty. I would recommend this only if you liked the fan-service this game is made up of.
Summary: Wow as a long time Final Fantasy player I was told over and over that this was going to be a let down.... And those people where right. With so little exploration, the lack of shops, and the fact that you control 1 of your party members this is possibly the worst Final Fantasy i have played. Now dont get me wrong there where some amazing traits to this game Square didnt fail to impress with what they seem to do best, graphics.
Summary: Only devout Final Fantasy fans would play this. It was the only reason I dumped 55 hours in to this game only to be completely dissatisfied with the ending and story overall as a whole. I kept thinking it would get better, but it really didn't. I'm rather surprised it is actually being made in to a series. The plot is hard to follow, even for gamers religious to the series.
