I've tried extremely hard to find something I would like in this game but it is literally impossible. The story is pretty horrible, with some very cringe worthy dialog. The battle system is basically the developers holding you by the hand. The graphics are pretty but add nothing to the game other than eye candy. The game is very linear until you reach chapter 10..but by that time you won't wanna play anymore.
I been playing the FF series since the beginning and each game has been an improvement over the last. However, this one was disappointment. Fiirst of all it takes almost 4 - 5 hour of gameplay before you really get a feel for the new battle system then it mostly automated you can manually enter action commands but there no real benefit. You really only control one character in combat 1 to 2 others react to the action of the lead character. This feels more like a movie than a game... I was starting fall asleep on an FF game !!! The story is hokey... and makes want to go read up on the angle... the game play is linear no classic exploring like in other FF games. The graphics are the only reason this game gets a 5 from me... Try again Square Enix
