I'd say the story was both complex and appealing for my tastes.

From my point of view the main problems were the characters. Aside from Balthier and Ashe who had some charisma, the others were... bland, and some of them had absolutely no role in the story.

The story itself was OK, but definitely not as epic as usual, no real unexpected plot twist.

The battle system was kinda similar to a MMORPG, not bad but the gambits made it too automatic. At a certain point in the game you can just watch the combats without even playing. And that's more a personal matter, but I didn't like how they made the Espers utterly useless in battle.

That being said, I enjoyed the game nonetheless, it was certainly a good RPG, but I expected more for a Final Fantasy.

Man, that topic reminds me that I still have DQ VIII and Odin Sphere to do... RPG are such time eaters >.>

Re: FFXII - I know for sure that Vaan's character was created purposely as an empty shell. We all know Balthier was the real leading man, yeah. The larger-than-life story and Star Wars-esque setting really gripped me from the beginning. I felt like it could have been some kind of awesome space opera. The FFXI style gameplay really took my favourite parts of an MMORPG and put them into a system that seemed to blend Eastern and Western RPG elements fairly well.

Well, LazyCanuck and I have exchanged games, which means I am underway in my replay of Final Fantasy VII. brb destroying reactors

I wish I had created a save of before I beat Emerald/Ruby weapons, it'd be fun to beat them again. I don't feel like replaying it all the way through to that point either though. <_<

I'm taking a break from playing through some VNs and replaying Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines to spend some time playing Auditorium. It's a pretty fun puzzle game and I'd certainly recommend at least trying out the demo.

I'll probably pick up RE5 tomorrow. I'm still undecided whether I want to get it or not.

Same here :D

Definitely an excellent game, I'm doing the whole game in coop mode with a friend, and some moments are quite epic.

Yeahhh! :D I never play it alone though. I'm too chicken. xD;;

I recently played Avalon Code. Also a little bit of Apollo Justice: AA. (Just replaying cases.) However, I'm quite excited for Pokemon Platinum. I plan to get it soon. =] I'm a big fan of Pokemon. Hehe. ^_^;

RE5 is not really scary imho, too much action based. It also implies that you have some stressful moments when you fear for your life though, and it's a great game. But you should try the old RE games if you want to be afraid ^^

And now I'm playing Persona 4. Damn good, the gameplay and social links system are even better than P3 FES, the story sounds interesting and the artworks/musics are still awesome.
Probably one of the last big RPG released on PS2.

Too bad, it really worth getting over the old graphics.
