On a whim, I got this after I said I wouldn't bother with the whole Final Fantasy series anymore after FFX. Now maybe things change after 6 hours into the game, but darn this is all one bad drug ride so far. It's like "OMFG BRITNEY SPEARS SHOULD HAVE HER OWN RPG!!!1" and Square acquiesced. Does Rikku ever get less blatantly stab me in the eyes until I die annoying or Yuna ever, you know, not act retarded in her longings for silly Tidus, one of the worst main characters ever?

We needed another Final Fantasy thread. :p

http://slowbeef.com/FFX2/index.html - A scathing review - FF fans beware :evil:

"Rikku, a girl from the last game says "Y.R.P. in position. Get ready, girls." into an earpiece, and is given a similar introduction. At this point, I was like, "What's with the 70's Charlie's Angels kind of intro? Wasn't the prequel dark, brooding, and" - but my mental monologue was interrupted by the introduction of the third girl, Paine, who kicked - what I suppose was - a security guard's ass.

Paine and Rikku get on stage and attack the fake Yuna, who runs off, and eventually reveals herself to be the evil LeBlanc! A character whose designer asked the question, "Why does cleavage have to end?" And simultaneously answered the questions, "What kind of villains can twelve year olds masturbate to?" and "What time to I get to **** my sister with an octopus?"

- From the above review.

Square ( who also destroyed enix ) should be ashamed of themselves, that company is dead, since all the talent left it long ago anyhow.

It's true, the whole... story and characters are annoying, but somewhere hidden is a fun game with decent gameplay.

What's sad is that everyone will still buy Final Fantasy 12, even knowing this.

no wonder, Final Fantasy is the best presented game series ever, saying that even outside of japan.
And very well marketed as well.
Tell someone you're playing an RPG, and they don't know what you mean. After that tell em it's something like Final Fantasy, but better, and they'll know what you mean :rolleyes:

Square ceased to be a good company ever since they dismissed the Xenogears and Chrono Cross staff (along with the Mana series staff as well) in order to focus on Final Fantasy. It's obvious at this point that their management is filled with retards.

It's sad. I used to be a Final Fantasy fanboy. Now I'm not even considering buying ffXII unless it get's more than 8 out of 10 on all reviews.

You'd better believe it will. Game reviews worship Square. :p

Remember that Square advertises on those magazines. Square's paying those magazines. Don't expect to get an honest review from them.

I love FFX-2. More than FFX, more than FFVIII, more than FFVII, more than FFIII (yeah I live in the US!) more than FFIX.

That game got me back into gaming, before I was feeling kinda dull with all the games I had. But I couldn't put FFX-2 down, just ate it and all its mini-games up, clocked in end game save at 110 hours! And played through it again!

I've gone into details in other FFX-2 'hate' threads about why I like it, and why you haters cant seem to get passed the girl image. It makes no sense to me. I know you have to be really masculine, and can't play a game that's even halfway cute. But oh well. :p.

Man, can we not just forget everything......buy FFXII, play it and check if it impresses us or not? I mean, why bother about what has happened and what may happen. Changes happen buddy!

FFXII may be really good.....or it may really suck, will I buy it? yeah! Will I love it? can't say now!

I meant that no one could give it an 8. X and X-2 had a lot of eights. Every reviewer has to give above an eight for me to buy it, not just the magazines and big advertising sites. Even the individual reviews on gamefaqs. It's pretty much impossible for a game to be that unanimously adored.

Trusting GameFAQs reviews are like trusting your organs to the crack dealer who lives in the dumpster behind your apartment.

Syed, you'll buy it regardless of whether it's crap. That's exactly my point. Square doesn't even need to advertise their games anymore, they could call it **** Fantasy and people would buy it.

Lobo, how could FFX-2 be the game that got you back into gaming? I enjoyed the game's gameplay yes, but everything else about the game screams fanboy.

Square has released consistently mediocre games since Final Fantasy VII. I'd say more, but I'm about to get super pissed and flip out kill people.
