So after never finishing this game and taking a 3-4 month break... I'm back in the mix. God of War inspired me... and I'm as hooked as ever.

72 hours in and all of my characters are level 60's. I'm almost at the end. Just finished Giruvegan. Where are you guys at?

Here's the soundtrack for those who are into that sort of thing:

I need to find a good RPG for the PS2 so my girlfriend can stop trying to steal my 360 to play Oblivion.

Is the combat system similar to Oblivion or turn based like previous FF games?

The battle system is my biggest quarrel with FF12. Not that it's bad, but it abandons it's original FF roots. It's this weird realtime/turnbase that feels MMO but it's not. It's difficult to explain. It's an ok battle system, I just felt like a downgrade from previous FF's classic turn based stuff.

It's kinda hit or miss. Some folks love it, others don't. I like it, but not for a Final Fantasy game (if that makes sense).

Anyone else wanna take a stab at explaining it? :lol:

Its hard to explain, as the Mor said.

But I like it, its more action oriented, and you can actually see the enemies, before you fight them, which I like.

I beat GoW2 Friday, and started this game up later the same evening. Im 6 hours in and barely scratching the surface of the game...its gonna take FOREVER to get through this game, and its starting a bit slower than some of the other great FF titles like 7,8, and X, but certainly more engrossing than 9, X2, and online 11). Its fun though. chock full o movie sequences eh?

dunno how or why i came to this realization.... But doesn't FF1's Garland bare a striking resemblance to FF12's Judge Gabranth?

It means you take turns hitting each other basically.
