If u played the other Final Fantasy games it doesnt matter. This game is so much different than those games. The battle system is this game is much more fast pace. It gonna take plenty of hours to get used to this battle system and more hours to have full use of the system. But once you get to about 20-25 hours of the game it opens up. The music is this game is ok but not legendary as the other Final Fantasy. The Summons are cool but they could have made them alot strong it seems sometimes it better to not use them. The game starts very slow but if u stick with it your in for a treat this game is very good with some great characters. Also this game has cut-scence that are just beautiful to look at an experinence. This is designed for the Playstation not the xbox with the xbox you dont even get Full HD so it a waste. Final Fantasy is a great game design for a great console the PS3.
This game is great, by far the greatest RPG on the market now. The game has one major flaw, however. In this one, unlike all the others, you only have control over one character while controling the other two character's "roles". This is ok, but the one big drawback is that if the lead character (the one you control) is killed, then it's game over. Even if the other two are still alive, the game ends. In all the others every party member had to be ko'd for the game to be over. Sometimes the A.I. doesn't recognize this and heals antoher character instead of you. This really sucks because some of these bosses have over 16 MILLION HP and it sucks to spend 45 minutes almost beating one, just to have the leader killed and the game be over while the other two characters are just fine. They should have really spotted that and adjusted it to switch to the next live character and give you the chance to revive your leader. If it wasn't for that, this game would be a 10.
