And where the heck was the love story?!?  The only other time that I was lost as to where the love story was, was Attack of the Clones.  Going from "We can't be together because it's not right" to "Let's get it on!" was just annoying...





..u didnt have to play the card game for junk... i never did and i have all the ultimaite weapons Smiley Tongue

Short version: Rinoa. Single-handedly ruined the game for me.

Long version: Crappy love story that I didn't buy for two seconds, because it was so forced ("I hate you...Whatever...oh, wait, lemme check the script...I love you!"); a whining misery-boy lead character whose "development" comes in the form of a miraculous personality 180; an insipid, useless, annoying Mary Sue of a "heroine"; and the fact that they totally abandoned fleshing out all the secondary characters halfway through the game in order to focus on these two morons.

The junction system wasn't THAT bad, but I'll take materia or the Sphere Grid over it any day.

The only redeeming factors for me were the awesome music, Triple Triad (best minigame EVER), and Quistis, who I've always thought got totally shafted.





i dint like rinoa either.... but the story line was good.... but then again depending how old u were when u played the game has a big impact on whether u like it or not.... u prolly still have cooties Smiley Tongue

Out of all the FFs out there, Tripple Traid was my fav. mini. game.... then maybe Xenocard from Xenosaga.... I hope they release the online versions of those two games so I can have fun with more skilled opponents lol....

Weird story (not the entire story but big part of it), gets really boring after a while, unbalanced battle system... (GF all the way) junction system = not very good, you have to stuck with squall in your team for 95% of the time

Pardon? I'm twenty-one years old, and I played the game for the first time THIS YEAR.

Yeah, my age has an impact. I'm old enough to have a realistic view of love, and this game sure as hell doesn't have it.
