Enjoyable RPG for a gamer. A must for a FF fanatic.

The storyline isn't exactly very deep but the characters are quite cool with imaginative personalities which can actually be pretty funny sometimes. The best part of the game for me was the leveling up system. Basically as well as the usual EXP to gain levels, you receive "SP" which you can assign to your "parameters" to additionally raise them at your will. So this gives you flexibility to perhaps concentrate your characters on different parts of battling, like being a healer or a ranged attacker for example.
Graphics in this game I'm still not completely decided on. Sometimes they look really great, with realistic lighting. Other times the environments are kinda bland with lower-res textures. However generally this game look great and is definitely next-gen.
Perhaps one gripe is not being able to play on after defeating the last boss. Personally i wasn't bothered as i finished everything i wanted before commencing the last fight, but it would be a cool addition nonetheless. As a true fan of the final fantasy games, i was pleasantly surprised by how this game turned out. It supplied me with over 60 hours of gameplay which i enjoyed thoroughly. Recommended.
