I just beat the game and holy cow, it's kind of perfect:
The battle system.
The job system.
The perfect music.
The character development.
The art design.
All with the exception of the repetitive last chapters, it.was.all.perfect.
It's almost a sin that this is a better Final Fantasy than the XIII games.
If you own a 3DS, buy it. If you don't own a 3DS, buy one and get this game. If you own this game, what do you all think?
