Maybe I have to keep playing it to fully judge but if you have Never Winter nights I think you have the same game as this. Looks the same though it's 7 years newer.
No great mystery. PC games have better graphics, more memory, faster processors, and far better controls than any consoles. You think you save money by bying a $200-300 console. But then the $70 game prices start to get ya down. And remember, for PC's there is always bittorrent.........
Not even close graphically or play wise in my opinion.
Yes, let's add in piracy to the mix shall we? No wonder so many games have crappy sales rates when people have no trouble downloading games illegally for free. /rant/
As far as the initial post goes, I'm not going to get into the whole arguement about good or bad. I love the game. Many others love the game. Some are destined to hate it. It all depends solely upon what you as a gamer value. If the game's not for you, so be it. That doesn't make the game over-rated nor over-hyped. But then again I think FFVII is vastly over-rated. Again, to each his own.
