I wish I could get this game now! I live in South Africa, so I can only get this game on May 30, I loved every final fantasy game (particulary final fantasy 10) and this one looks great.

OK, look. The voice acting is pretty good. It's just when you hear the same thing over and over again, it gets annoying. They can afford to have the voice actor supply a few more lines with the amount of return they are going to get on this game.

ppl keep knocking the game and it hasnt even been released (US & europe)...every final fantasy so far has things that werent perfect but most of them have still been extremely good so just wait and give it a chance... and for those saying square has lost their touch, crisis core was pretty recent and was AMAZING!

@G4mBi7 Not everyone was disappointed with 12. don't generalize because you hated it and you THINK everyone else did. 12 wasn't really that bad. the first 3/4 of the story was weak, and the characters for the most part seemed kind of flat, but the sidequests and boss battles were pretty fun, and the gameplay, although very different, was pretty good. Seems to me like XIII is taking the good stuff from that and mixing it with some classic ideas and a umber of new ones.

FF12 didn't really suck, was just different, still i liked FFX more, but 12 was still pretty good. Doesn't look like the battle will suck, its just that summoned creatures are simplified and are used as a special/last resort thing or just for showoff, as all other FF were like always. FF= visuals and storytelling in most games, which they are great in that. Still, from that battle video, they could've gotten a better voice actress for the protagonist... Let's see how she does during cutscenes...

Thank you, Twi41. Having just seen the Bahamut movie, I was beginning to wonder how this whole Summon->Gestalt thing worked.

This is pretty much how it works: You cast Odin and he appears next to you. From that point on you have to try to fill up the meter at the bottom right hand corner of the screen as much as you can before your summon's SP meter runs out. ( Your Summon's SP meter depletes at a fixed pace and can also lose quite a bit if it takes a big hit ) ( Your Drive/Gestalt meter starts out half full and can only increase ) Filling up your half-full purple meter will give you more points when you hit the square button to enter the Driving ( American version's "Gestalt" ) stage. In this stage you use the directional keys+X or Triangle / Circle to do various moves. Each move has a point requirement shown at the bottom left hand of the Driving/Gestalt stage. ( That's the little speedometer thing ). Once that reaches zero you will automatically use the ultimate attack which is an Area of Effect on everything. Btw, on the Japanese version she says "Zenmetsu suru", ( something like Annihilation I think. ) when doing that final attack. Neat stuff.

Wow. Almost real time? when using Gestalt? And we don't control the eidolon? we just control the character we were initially controlling? Confusing but I can't wait to play this!!! GameSpot uploaded so much possible-spoiler-warning-videos of Final Fantasy XIII. I'm so tempted to watch =S

The pink is linked to her Crystanium ( imagine a 3d sphere grid from FFX ). When going into her Crystanium the first thing you see is a giant pink flower and then it zooms out from there. That is more linked to her as opposed to Odin. Each individual has their own emblem/symbol. It's interesting to see the differences between this and the Japanese version. Keep in mind that I have never taken a Japanese class but I am a self study: In the Japanese version she says "kare ni makasete" when summoning Odin. [ Leave it to him ] .. and in the end she says " mata au " [ (Let's) meet again ] Hopefully things go great overall.

I haven't played the game but this is only speculation but the pink flowers might be because of lightning, not odin. In other words, all her summons have pink flowers because they're her summons. Again, i have not played the game and this is merely a theory
