An FF hater, huh? I have to say... FF7 was very good, FFX was amazing, and FFXII and FFIX were both interesting in their own right. So the only FF to truly suck since FFVI was FFVIII.

But I digress.

Your review, aside from the FF silliness, made me actually want to play this game, though I would've liked to know whether there's a coherent story here, or just a range of scenarios.

Bahaha. Arguing with this guy about FF will get you nowhere.

Also: Yeah, Final Fantasy VIII did, in fact, suck.

On topic, I actually did, um, "buy" Live A Live a while ago but never got around to playing it. Might just boot it up sometime if I'm bored.

People who enjoy FFXII should be locked away before they can do harm to others. Or, worse, breed.

Yay! We're ignoring a review on a different series in favour of bickering about FF games!


For us. For them. For you.

It's been a while since I played Live a Live. Back then, what was available in translation patches was decidedly less than aesthetically pleasing. Might have to give it another shot one of these days.


''Yes, yes...but apart from all that, Mrs Lincoln, how was the play?''

Arguing with ANYONE over their FF tastes is pointless, because it, like religion, is one of those things that people either love or hate, and never the twain shall meet.

I could list a bunch of reasons why you're wrong, but then you'd list a bunch of reasons why you're right. Still, I couldn't help but open the can of worms slightly... just to see what sort of Kraken lurked within.

Maybe some other day.

I've learned to neither love nor hate Final Fantasy, but to embrace its inconsistency. As for the review, it's good enough to make me want to play the game. Nice job. :)

zipp: There is one coherent story, but you wouldn't recognize that there is until the eighth/final chapter.

sash: The translation patch was updated last year, it looks far better now. Each character has their own font.


Touching the untouchable.

Good review. I like how you provide examples of two different chapters to give us a feel what the game is like while showcasing the game's strength. Well done.

What I don't like is how you suddenly spring the game's one weakness during the last paragraph. I think that should've been incorporated into the body somehow.

Then again, I'm really one to talk about organization and incorporating ideas together.

About FF, I've played FF 1-7 and 12. I think 6 is outstanding, the rest are good, but not spectacular. FF games are good, just overrated. I even enjoyed FF 7, but I don't think it's anywhere near the best RPG ever. I even enjoyed 12 from what little I've played of it.

Kung Fu era was the best to me. Awesome main character, that being a cool old guy, which are always the best sort of characters, fun "80's martial arts movie" storyline, and great, GREAT music. Well, the entire game has above average music. Also, the Wild West era was awesome, I don't know why, but I really liked the protagonist of it, very Clint Eastwood like.

As for FF's, I liked them all more or less, with the exception of FFVIII in which I hated the junction system more then all else really. Haven't yet played FFXII. Favorites would be FF7, IX, IV and VI, probably in that order.


Idemo do dna....tugo ti i ja.
