    Final fantasy was only good till season 6 so why should I expect this to be good?

    Games without full voice acting are literally unplayable. Ff wasnt even good until 10.

    I'd rather read than deal with some of the worst voice acting.

    I'll read all day over this shit.

    The ATB mechanic makes it pretty much like a turn based game where anything of importance like abilities/magic/summons/limit breaks are pseudo turn based while also adding some ARPG elements like active dodging, blocking and positioning.

    The first few hours will probably be a clusterfuck for people not used to handling everything thrown at them at once.

    Had this pre-ordered but canceled to see how the final product looks (apparently this first release is only Vol. 1 of 2 or 3). Not terribly impressed w/ the demo and I'm the exact demo they need to buy this.

    Played through the original this week for the first time in 10 years or so...made Sephiroth my bitch.

    About to start on X for this week. X-2 for next week and then circle back to VI & VIII I think

    So the initial release is only the first 8 or so hours of the original game? Seriously?

    I have been having a blast with this game so far. Still getting used to the combat. Ifrit is a straight bad ass.

    Is this actual combat fighting as it looked in the previews? This was the only FF game I’d ever played. 3 whole disks!

    I don’t think they really should have/could have made this game without it being as graphically impressive as it is. That was probably the main thing at the time of the original release that was so significant

    my biggest problem with tifa is she's too wrapped up in her own bullshit and not focused enough on me, the protagonist

    Through chapter 12 so far 30 hrs in, seems like it'll take a minimum of 3 playthroughs to platnium, gorgeous game.

    Square's intents with this game seems to be directly kick us in the feel balls with all the extra cutscenes and backstory :tebow:

    I think a lot of this game is ultra cringey and I’m not a big fan of some of the additions but I am a BIG fan of the nostalgia and a lot of the voice acting from the main characters. I’m really happy they didn’t go the Tidus route with Cloud I think his entire demeanor and voice/inflection is perfect. Tifa is a lovable character as well. I wish hard mode were an option out of the gate tho because normal mode is super easy.
