Ok. If you are a serious ff fan, this WILL disappoint you. If you have never played ff before you MAY like this (although you should play ffx first to understand whats going on, but try not to compare it to x, because it is nowhere near as good)The thing is, it is completely different to every other final fantasy game in terms of gameplay it is mission-based. It does follow on from final fantasy x, the world is the same, the characters are the same, the fiends are the same. I didn't like how they've TRIED to modernise it, however, the music, the clothes, the missions, the singing and dancing... they were trying to make it appeal to a different audience, and in doing so, pushed away the regular audience. When they made it were they trying to promote girl power? They can't have because it is so far off the mark. Also i wish they hadn't changed the battle system back to bars filling up before you could attack. I liked having time to plan and knowing whose turn it was next. Despite all this, it is a good game, it has tons of stuff to do and the bosses are a lot easier than x's. I played through it solely to see the end, which does complete the story, but only if you get 100% or trigger the special ending. So. If you want a game to play, play this and ignore the faults. If you want to finish off final fantasy 10, play this, but be sure to get the special ending (a decent guide will tell you how to do this) or complete it 100%. If you want to play a game in keeping with the final fantasy series DO NOT play this game.
