This game just shows me that every Final Fantasy game is good, but some take time to get used to. I bought this game thinking it would be really good just like all the other Final Fantasies. I played for about an hour and a half and sat there wondering how they could make such a terrible Final Fantasy. The fact that the characters were so short and kid like really bothered me too. Anyway I finished playing Final Fantasy 7 about a year later and decided that theres no way a Final Fantasy can be bad...so I gave it a second chance. BAM 80 hours of playtime...haha...yea really I couldnt believe how much more I liked it the second time...so yea this game is just amazing...but if you've played the other Final Fantasies...like 7...right before it it might be a little disapointing but it actually was'nt to me at all...in the end it turned out to be a perfect game just like 7,8 and 10!
