Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars
I enjoyed it, but the gameplay didn't really do it for me.
This is MY opinion of the game and I understand that a lot of you vocal people out there may disagree and that's entirely acceptable.
I played on PS3 as I wanted to get into the FFXIV beta, being a player of FFXI.
Amazing cut scenes.
The Paradigm shifts are really interesting.
Leveling the gear is neat.
The tutorials are very indicative and do teach you the game play very well.
You will spend a large portion of time watching cut scenes.
Maps aren't really that complex up until chapter 10. (Which is pretty much within the last chapters...)
You will feel that by confirming the auto-attack you may not be in the driver's seat.
Poor voice acting and plot for the most part. (It's almost like watching a soap opera)
Confusing names like L'Cie and Falcie. (It took me a while to understand this.)
I understand that SE will most likely never go back to the ways of FFVI but I truly wish they bettered their game play. I see nothing wrong with turn based!
Again, this is my opinion of the game. Feel free to post your own.
