Enjoy this masterpiece!
Story: Very good.
Combat: Below average (spamming A over and over isn't that interesting)
Free-roaming: Terrible (it's often a one way street)
I didn't finish the game, fans of the series will no doubt love it. Otherwise, it's average.
I have played loads of games that are far more open world than this will ever be, but cannot hold a candle to the:
Strong engaging story line.
Graphics working flat out.
Beautiful diverse environments.
Characters you actually care about.
As for the battle system its simplicity is its strength, because you can make the game as shallow or as deep as you want, if they make the battle system too hard people complain, if the they make it too easy people say it’s a waste of time, so they have given you the choice.
The battle system has been revamped in such a way that reduces the players interaction. Most battles consist of hammering the autobattle button and occasionally changing your classes to incorporate a healer when your HP gets a bit low. I can see what they were trying to do with this new battle system (ie speed things up) but by taking control out of the player's hands the game might as well be playing itself.
The story is what you'd expect from final fantasy, completely overblown and containing more angst that your average My Chemical Romance concert.
All in all I felt that I gave this game a good chance (I've clocked up 35hrs or so) but it has let itself down spectacularly. I hope that the next final fantasy goes back to the older style of game design but seeing that the next final fantasy will be FFXIII - 2, a direct sequel, I do not hold out much hope.
Please don't buy this game. Publishers can't push stuff like this and expect us to swallow it. Final Fantasy hasn't evolved in years. Play the old games, if you must, but in the name of all that is good in this world just keep your money in your pocket.

I was hoping for a turn based RPG, its a button masher, There is very few choices to make, look up the required tactic on google, press button quickly. Read morePublished on 5 Dec. 2012 by James Uplands
