Um... fun to play, but abandon all hope of beating the game without constantly referring to the walkthrough...

The game's difficulty level is off the charts if you don't use the walkthrough. Even then, it requires a loooot of grinding. Basically, with the augment system and some of the side quest stuff, you are guaranteed to miss out on a lot of augments and special items if you don't do a series of non-intuitive things that you'd never think to do unless you follow the walkthrough!
Sorry, but it just ruins a game for me when you can't beat if without reading the walkthrough, where, inevitably, you end up finding out about story elements that should come as a surprise. I got all the way to the moon and I still chucked this game because i learned that I'd missed the opportunity to get some item without which the final bosses would be impossible... WTF is up with that?
Playing FF games is like masochism sometimes... yet I keep coming back. BUT this is the only one I've tossed before beating it, TWICE!! Both on the GBA and know the DS!
