I hear a lot of people say that hours of the beginning are boring and every new system that comes out, it seems that Final Fantasy gets a bit worse. 7 and 8 were awesome for the PS1. Then the PS2 came along and 10 was alright and 10-2 was absolutely terrible.

X is my favorite FF game ever soooo o.O

The first couple hours CAN be boring as it's much more just story driven but if you actually get into the story it's really not that bad. BTW, the story is fantastic. I think this is the first game that hasn't really had a main character as they all share about the same amount of screen time, back story videos and dialog etc. It's done really well and expands on the characters and their personalities much better than any past FF has done IMO.

The first hours of the game (and pretty much all of the sotry part of it) is heavily story driven and plays like you're playing a movie, which I actually liked a lot. I've always played the Final Fantasy games for the story first and the combat second.

Also, the combat system is pretty freakin' deep and tough to master. It's no longer about doing monotonous things like casting a few spells, healing, casting a few spells. It's more about timing and strategy now, more than ever, as ALL of the fights are harder due to the new HP system (You auto heal after every battle) so it makes it much more enthralling. As far as FF games go, this one is ranked #2 on my list right after X and tied with 8.

Oh wait I did like 10 a lot. I just really hated 10-2. I liked 7 a lot more than 8 though.

I will probably give this game a shot since I am a story guy myself. I play every game for the story!

If you're a nut for great story in games this one surely doesn't disappoint!



Also, The reason x-2 was horrible is because the original head of Square stepped down after X so X-2, XI, XII and XIII are all done by a different leader (hence why they are drastically different than other FF games).

And X-2 was terrrrrrrrrible. I like 8 more than 7 but I think it's because the hype killed it. Everyone was shitting themselves over how great the graphics for that game were and I thought they were horrid... for the record I played 8 before 7.

7 is my favourite game of all time. X is probably my second. XIII is the best Final Fantasy since X by a damn long shot. I don't really count X-2 and XII when talking about Final Fantasy as they were atrocious.

The story is very good, and whilst you do have a main character, when the game opens up you can choose your party with or without her in it. (although Lightening is the most well rounded and awesome, not choosing her is just silly )

When Sentinels become quite necessary(as soon as the hand holding is over with) the battle system really shines. It's far more strategic than previous FF's. And it can really kick your arse for making a mistake.

You don't get 'random' battle anymore either which is another huge negative to non FF fans. Instead you see the enemies and whilst some you cannot avoid, others you can if you're in a rush.

And the fact that after you beat the main story (don't forget to watch the credits and save afterwards) there is a TON to do on Gran Pulse.

I am very big on the extra's such as cutscenes and story lines. So that is a must. I will probably end up buying it!
