    This game looks pristine, final fantasy never lets anyone down!

    Looks like they have finally "dumbed down" this franchise to the point of retardation. I see no elements in this game that remind of the FF greats, eidolons are now transformers?, no open world environment?, no items or healing in-between battles?, no airship that I can manually fly myself around an entire world?

    All we get are seamless battles with lots of "numbers" flashing on our screen? If I wanted to play a game like that I would play a hack n slash.

    That was a lousy explanation of why they removed the task of replenishing your life after a battle. It seems that the game looses it's sense of adventure. In past games a player would get thrown into battles with little to no assurance that they coming out of it with all characters standing. Those were risk worth taking, because the victory of making a journey through one of the toughest lands felt great. To me, I never wanted to see my characters go down in battle. I spent too much time on them for that, and so I took care of them with potions, magic, etc... But, now the game does it for me?... I swear there are too many lazy gamers out there, and these companies are catering to their needs.

    i won't be getting this game for the simple fact that its not the traditional final fantasy game. with all its downfalls, the one that really gets me is the fact that no matter how many reserve characters you have in your party, if the main three die in battle you can't swap them out. its an instant game over. me i'm going to get resonance of fate. this is not a final fantasy game. its a jrpg with the final fantasy name tacted on.

    just hoping its better than FFXII, I know I am prolly gonna get flamed here, but I could not stand that main character, and I did not like the fact you could just set up macros for battle and not even need to play, just let the comp do it. This one does look a lot better and much more fun.

    I have never played a FF game, but I will play this one.

    I just can't get myself excited about this game. The last FF I played was FF10 and since then I've grown tired of that type of RPG.

    no you aren't, Final Fantasy is really an acquired taste wrapped in blind rabid fanboyism

    Don't worry people the PS3 will be fixed by then, its just an internal clock error. Sony came out and said that on their official blog, its fixable via update

    I have been waiting for this game since it was announced! I really hope they fix the ps3 bug by then because it will be hard to concentrate when I have the game, but couldnt play it.
