anyone bought it? opinions?
Kind of frustrating that 14 hours in, it hasn't really "got going" yet.
Getting the hang of it now though.
LOTS more grinding needed than previous FF's, and lots harder to find good areas. While around lv12, I got fed up hitting each boss (and some mobs) at 5/6 levels above that, so I'm levelling everyone to 18-20 before going anywhere.
3 man party size is shit also. The flow is much better with a guest, so you can have tank/support(mixed mage/range/close)/black mage/white mage. With a 3-man party you have to drop the support, which makes exploiting weaknesses a lot harder.
Tip: Steal is a MUST. It's the only way to get decent levels of cash.
So, yeah. Challenging and OH SO PRETTY. It's good. Very good.
who thinks X was the best. Now my brothers PS2 has died. I'll have to wait for Crystal Chronicles on the Wii to turn up...
the battle mode of X.
and Blitzball is the best minigame of the series. Almost a game in it's own right.
I did not enjoy the story (though there were some nice twists). Also, it was too linear, and the main story finished before lv50 (iirc), half of the level cap, which is ridiculous. The gap between 'standard' and 'extra' elements of the game was way too big, with the main story do-able in about 40hrs, the extras in 20 times that or something.
VII is still the best. My first run of that game will forever be the best gaming experience of my life.
without the gift of hindsight yet, seems to be Zelda Twilight Princess while throwing my arms around. FFX was the first one I really got into to be fair, took a long time for me to warm to the battles for some reason.
it's so much worse than all the other ones i've played. no charm, too easy, linear and predictable.
vii will always always always be the best.
thats probably why I liked it, cause I'm useless at Final Fantasy games as a rule!
Still jealous I wont get to play XII though...
blitzball is good, but the basketball game on ffvii is much better
Actually, that whole place was ace.
I'm playing Okami right now which is brilliant, much better then Final Fantasy 10 which was boring. Obviously I haven't played 12 yet but if it's better then Disgaea 2 I'll be very surprised.
It's on my 'want' list.
along with the completely pointless chicabo game (chocobos mam or summat innit?)
ill shall be testing ffxii soon
entries in the series have had my favourite minigames: the ones in VIII and IX, if only because I quite like the idea of the main characters sitting down to a card game in the middle of an interdimensional crisis.
X is a bit underrated. Some of it's probably as atmospheric as VII; the plot's not bad, either, although the characters are really fucking irritating. X-2, though: dressing up! And the best title music ever.
Was a bit let down with X, but I still find myself going back to it. Its amazing.
ie 7, 8, 9 and 10 (the standard rpgs from psx onwards)
I'm thinking of getting 12 but it'll probably mean sacrificing my life from now on. Tempting.
