    Yeah it really isn't all that great. It's presented well with nice top notch S-E cutscenes but the actual game is janky as hell! Shoddy camera and gimmicky crystal bearer mechanics of pick up and throw... then rinse and repeat.

    Man, Famitsu was being generous there. People thought it a shocker when they gave it a 30/40 (which is a 75%), but seeing these reviews, who knows...

    I'm not really interested in Final Fantasy in general, and even less so with the spinoffs. I'll leave this out.

    I've been looking forward to this for a while, great to see it's finally out. The reviewers seem to hate Final Fantasy, the most fair review was the GT one which was also the highest.

    "Fair" or "honest"? Just because a review is bad in your eyes doesn't mean they were unfair.

    It wasn't really leaked, Gamestop actually started selling this on the 17th and apparently
    didn't have any kind of release date in their comps.

    I've played a bit over an hour or so (Just made it to Cid's workshop)
    Game is pretty decent, It certainly has it's fair share of control issues but I'm having fun.
    There's also a FAIR amount of missable stuff, certain events (mini-games essentially) you
    have to do really well to get the medals. Also being someone who hates missing out on stuff
    I really hated the section with the living wall and having such a short time to beat it before
    you're forced to continue on and not be able to go back and try again. SUCKS.

    I want a proper Dragon Quest game on Wii, I would love to see Dragon Quest VIII on Wii.
    Those graphics just looked so nice on the PS2, I'm sure the Wii can pull it off too.
    Would love that, not that spinoff FF game.

    Oh sweet, totally forgot about that.
    I Googled it a bit, all I found was the announcement and some images. The style looks like Dragon Quest VIII, so good enough for me [​IMG]
