I've been a massive fan of final fantasy for years and was really looking forward to this, but was very dissapointed when I started playing. I've been playing it now for 50 hours. I will complete it because I paid 40 pounds for it, but in my opinion this game has as much depth as a puddle. It consists of walking, battle, cut scene over and over. Thats the game. The ability to explore is severely limited, and even when you do, there is nothing to do except get into another tedious battle. This isn't a roll playing game, you can't interact with anybody or anything in the invironment. Alot of the battles you can win by banging on the X button. This game is solely based around the battling system. If that floats your boat, this will be a good game for you, but if you want a real roll playing game with depth and interaction, get Fallout 3, not as good ad FF graphically, but much better game play.
