    I have to say, I thought "My Hands" was going to be horrible but it's actually a pretty good song. I have no complaints.

    The song fits surprisingly well. Hope's voice sounds perfect for him. Too bad I can't say the same thing for Rygdea.

    GOOOOOOOOOD THIS IS BAAAD.

    The song is awful, and the voice acting seems mediocre at best (except for Sazh and Yun Fang, who are awesome, and seem to be the only characters in this game that don't look generic).

    Honestly, I think pop music should stay out of Final Fantasy.
    As if this game needs to look and sound any more like some teenage drama show? It's already embarrassing enough with all the squeaky voiceovers and cheesy dialogue.

    They should just stick with epic orchestrated tracks, like in the Uematsu days.

    Oh...please. It's fine. The voice acting is top notch and it looks like they rerendered the FMVs with the lips to sync with the English VO.

    The song is fine as well. It's a pop song. Every FF after FFVIII has had a pop song and I'd rather have an actual English song than some stupid Engrish version done by some J-Pop chick.

    Glad I spent the $100 and imported

    The opening music is terrible, western pop never should be in an eastern game, Leona Lewis isn't very good at all.

    The voice acting is atrocious save for Sazh, he got the best when it comes to voice acting. Vanille has a stereotypical tween voice and sounds like a cross between childlike sunshine and butterflies type and emo (two things that never should mix), that was the worst voice acting ever, I understand having emo characters in FF, but Vanille sounds like a 10 year old crybaby which is fail in a series of this caliber.

    needs better voice acting.

    EDIT: NEEDS, BETTER, VOICE ACTING.

    DOUBLE EDIT: NEED BETTER SCRIPT. "Catch me if you can!" "Cut him off!' "Uh oh!" "AAAAAAAAAHHHHIIIIIIEEE" "GRRRRRR" "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEE"

    This^^^

    I'd just rather there be no pop music at all, really.
    Although I find Jap-Pop less annoying, it still is quite annoying, and I would probably find it even more annoying if I understood Japanese.
    I guess I just hate pop music.
    And I do not think a game that is supposed to be "epic" should be associated with pop music.

    And correct me if I'm wrong, but I do not recall any pop music in the soundtracks for either FFXII or FFIX.

    For FFXII, not sure. But I'm pretty sure for FFIX, there was.

    I'd be interested in the story if the industrial setting was darker (Not colour wise). The general evil corporation story died and the characters weren't 15.

    I thought it was fine, other than it seemed to overpower the actual dialog throughout the trailer at times.

    Not like it's any different from JPOP's intention.

    I just hope framerate dips aren't a problem with this game [​IMG]
    The trailer gets good after 2:50. Shows some action.
    Also looks like this game is going to have some humour in it. Hope they don't fail.

    I don't think "my hands" will be playing over and over as you play the game...

    GOD DAMMIT THAT SONG IS TERRIBLE!
    DOesn't fit at all. The trailer would have been much better with Square's own score going on, wouild have been so much more tense when it was supposed to be and seem a bit less like a bunch of people whining.

    I actually liked the Japanese song quite a bit, this one is crap though. The voice acting was decent at best, and I'm not usually one to complain about dubs. I think the worst part about it all was the script... I'm not sure if it was that terrible in the Japanese version or what, but that was certainly awful.
