    30 hours?? How far in are you, good to see its another lengthy slog

    Its beautiful to look at and the story so far is great, but I think you either love or hate FF, personally I love them.

    Just wish you could get 7 and 8 for xbox... is there a PC version about?

    I've got it - and I've got mixed feelings. I've come back to the series for the first time since FF9, and I still reckon 7 is the best!! The Gameplay is much improved, the chaining of attacks is much better, and I like the Paradigms. I'm coming round to only directly controlling the lead character, rather than the whole team in sequence.

    On the other hand, the story is cheesy like old stilton, everyone spends all their time saying "i'll protect you!" & "i'll never leave your side" and other such lamentable lines every 1.5 seconds. And I can't quite bring myself to skip the cutscenes...

    Also the normal fights are generally too easy, whereas the boss fights are hugely harder - possbily due to the fact that you can't choose your team leader - you can be forced to do a pretty hard boss fight with they girliest, weakest character going.

    But overall, thumbs up...

    Why do they keep messing with the Aeons/GF's! They were so cool when you just called them to do your bidding! Now they're vehicles are they?

    Agreed - that's another cheesy moment when they hop onto the Horse/motorcycle/whatever the "Eidolons" are, it just reminds me of the power rangers building their big robot things and posing for a cheesy shot of them all as they say "Ha!" really loudly

    This is the first FF I've bought and I think it's pretty darn awesome. Even if the battling doesn't do it for you or the rest of the game play you have the awesome cut-scenes to ogle at.

    I'm only up to chapter 6 and some of the battles are fairly difficult but most of the time I have been using auto attack out of pure laziness so this hasn't helped me. I'm starting to get the hang of the battle system and it's getting quite interesting.

    Never really got into FF but i did wonder if i should get it. I decided against its in the end because i think it doesnt allow for multiplayer.

    Its not about MP apeo, its more a book or film that you can play along with.

    Just got to Gran Pulse, start of chapter 11.... a guess is that is about about half way through. Although i'm not sure.

    Hoping 'verses 13' and '14' are out this year.

    I have the guide at home and IIRC you are about 2 or 3 chapters from the end. Only thing is they may be longish chapters.

    Im quite tempted to get a console just for it but I'm sucked into ffxi again so no time free for other games, but the battle system what i've seen looks kind of similar to what they're doing with ffxiv.
