What Version Did the Critics Play?!

First off, do not listen to any of the reviews out there from the major sites. I believe either they got an old copy of the game because they complain about the long load times... There are load times but not as bad as they make them sound. They say this game takes over old already has been stuff.... Because this isn't the next Final Fantasy? If your like me and loved Final Fantasy you have been waiting for this style rpg to finally reach the xbox 360 and knock it out and this game does just that.

The story line is right up to pair of that of mass effect, maybe even more immersing. This game will definitely take you longer than Mass effect though. The videos in this game are awesome and beat any game to date. Which is why this game takes 4 disc, its hard to put hours and hours of Hi-Def video on regular dvd.

Only issues I have had with this game, and I have put in 50 hours now into is the game to me isn't that challenging. Many people say the bosses are too hard, I beg to differ, but it all comes down to your experience with rpgs. The other that can get annoying is the sudden drop in frame rates, even every time before a battle.

Other than those slight issues this game is great and you'll love it, I definitely recommend this one!

A Great RPG for the 360

I really enjoyed this game. The graphics and music were beautiful. The story made me teary-eyed. All in all it was probably one of the best RPGs I've played in a long time.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good RPG for the 360. Also, Final Fantasy fans.

Although, I feel this is more for the 'hardcore' RPG fan. It is a little challenging and does require a bit of strategy for some of the boss fights and puzzles...

Trust me on this, if you've played the Final Fantasy RPG games and loved them, you'll love this.

I have to say i haven't played a decent RPG game since FF12, but this is just gold. Amazing story, incredible graphics, super cinematic gameplay which is very smooth and cool to watch. It's just a very addicting game. So hey, remember, this is Gamefly, check it out, see if you like it(guaranteed you will) and hey maybe you'll even keep it(I know i will!)
