    Final Fantasy XII, great game, huh?

    I just got the chance to play this extraordinary game. Anyone else played it? I'm loving it so far. I really like the license system they use, it's a large improvement over FFX and its sphere-thingie.

    Too bad the voice actor for Vaan sounds like an emo, it's really annoying.

    If you've played it - What do you think about the game? I love how the battles feels all MMORPGish. It-is-a-great!

    I've invested about 20 hours in it already, but It feels like I've barely scratched its surface.

    Is FFXII like FFXI in that you can only play it online?

    I've played FFXI for a over a year and was hoping that the next version would have a non-pay to play option.

    Aye, I thought it was a wonderful game.


    Freet: No, it is just a normal Final Fantasy game, but the battle system is similar to that of Knight of the Old Republic.

    Yeah, it's a great game. And you're right about just scratching the surface, I'm pretty sure the whole game is about 90+ hours long. Haven't played on it in a while, still waiting for a new remote for my TV. I'm currently up to the Phon Coast :smile: I'm still waiting for FFXIII to come out for PS3 though, does anyone have any ideas when that might be?

    Do the girls dress as skanky as in FFX-2?

    So what game are we on now? I stoped counting them after 8. Are we on trippled digits yet?

    You know the roman numerals.
    X = 10
    I = 1

    XII = 12

    There will never be a final game for Final Fantasy.

    Final Fantasy XII and I have a love/hate relationship. I love the new battle/gambit system, but hate the music, story, characters, license board, quickenings, and the constant back and forth between maps. There is not enough Viera either.

    Well there are three Final Fantasy XIII(13)'s coming out next year...

    I played the demo of it on SO:TtEoT, and I thought it was kinda neat. I didn't like the fighting, it confused me, but it sure was pretty. The giant monster attacks were especially cool.

    I didn't like it.
    The storyline is terrible, and boring. It's all political intrigue. The playable characters are all bland no-personalities and have little to no role in the storyline. The only difference between the playable characters are a variation of 5 or so stat points. You're really just playing the same 3 customizable characters with different skins.

    The combat system is like watching a bot farm for you, except you have to move it to the next enemy.

    I really like it, 3rd best behind VII and VIII. X was okay, but I thought it was too linear for too long. It's been on hiatus for a while, but I've been wanting to get back into it. I think I'm 80 or so hours into it. I've been playing Crisis Core lately, which is pretty good except for having no control over the limit breaks and the near random leveling for both materia and character.

    FFX-2 was the worst FF game. FFXII was almost as bad. So boring after a few hours.

    So, 13 more minutes of cutscenes, and you can finally start controlling your character for 2 minutes! Yay.

    Well there is The Viera, but you may need a bunny fetish to appreciate it...

    I like the new system in FFXII, but the story blew. Blew big time. And you get nothing satisfying after achieving "Order of Ambrosia." I fought that final hunt for something like 2 hours, kill that annoying thing in that crystal place (the one with no maps), all for this crappy sword that is useless. I thought FFX had a much better storyline compared to XII. Perhaps due to the fact that it was still Squaresoft back then as opposed to Square-Enix now?

    Still an alright game though.

    Oh, and the ending sucked.
