The thing is, I've been in that Pulse place for an hour of the time I've played this game, using the same attacks except for one or two new ones, with so many of the same enemies the whole time, all in the longest single tutorial I've ever seen in a video game, and when a game takes this long to get me into the gameplay, I get bored very quickly. I tried, but this game was boring.

I've heard so much about Final Fantasy that I wanted to try it out. This is my first Final Fantasy game, so I'm writing this review without any knowledge of previous games or any biases.
Graphics: 9/10. Character movement is a little awkward at times, but they did well with the rest.
Storyline: 8/10. Characters slowly grow and change, but the actual story makes it difficult to have any real freedom. Since you're on the run, you are unable to explore the world.
Gameplay: 6/10. Honestly, I didn't like the battle system. No one really has time to carefully stack moves, so you end up using autoplay. The downtime in between move sequences is annoying and unrealistic. I can understand if you need mp in order to cast a spell, but I shouldn't have to wait in order to do basic attacks. I also don't like that I can't manually change a person's job unless I have a pre-saved battle plan.
Overall I didn't really like this as an rpg. The reason I like rpg instead of fps is the freedom you have. In most rpgs I can decide which quests to take and when to take them. It's not just a marathon of battles. It's a good game to pass the time, but it's something I could easily put down.
