    Personally, although it is one of my favourite games, it took a bit of getting into. I was also slightly put off by the character design, especially after the proportioned characters of VIII. However, I was eventually sucked into the compelling storyline, and got into it quite quickly.

    BUY THIS GAME!

    I enjoyed it very much my first play through. More than some of the other FFs.

    I think you really missed out. Questionable graphics aside, the game has my favourite OST, one of the most engaging and interesting plots of the series, a generally fun battle system (aside from Trance at times) and all in all, a great homage to the rest of the series.

    Yeah your missing out hugely, IX was superb, the storys so easy to get into as well

    If I was like Cloud I don't think I would have taken that test.

    The tail makes the game better.

    so, you saw a tail and thought "oh man this game looks terrible". Thats the best reason ever to miss out on a great game that you should play atleast once.

    Apparently small details like that really get to people. There has been an unbelievably amount of bitching about FFXIII and how Shiva can become a motorcycle.

    I really like it, it's one of my favourite Final Fantasys. The mini games and side quests are enjoyable and the main story is good. I think you missed out.

    It did take a while to get into though, and I never really started playing it with the same intensity (lol) as I did FFVIII until about 6 months after I'd bought it.

    There are some valid reasons that people don't like this game.

    The tail is not one of them. If that's the reason that you're not playing the game, pick up a copy, and rest assured, the tail will be explained, storywise.

    Besides, after I first played the game, I had a fantasy that I was going to have a tail grafted onto my ass. You know. Because tails are cool.

    It is called Final Fantasy. Therefore, not buying a game because of a tail seems strange to me.


    Anyway, to put it concisely, this is the best game ever.

    "They said this day would never come. They said our sights were set too high. They said this country was too divided, too disillusioned to ever come around a common purpose. But on this January night, at this defining moment in history, you have done what the cynics said we couldn't do." - Barack Obama.

    Definately, it's certainly one of the best games in the series, and a serious contender for the #1 spot. I think it's safe to say it's the most well rounded game, having each individual part at least exceptional.
