I don't know if I made myself clear, I already played through it once (hell, I did absolutely everything there is to do in it, I would've gotten the platinum trophy if this were on PS3), I'm just saying saying that I recently played the first few hours again to check out how looked on my PC and I think there's a decent story with some good characters here. 4 good characters out of 6 is not bad for a FF game (I only liked Auron in X and I didn't like anyone in VIII for example). I just think that the story is spread to thin and that ends up hurting it. Balthier in particular is an excellent character. There was potential for more but we still got a very cool world to explore, a decent cast and a story that at least didn't end up being a convoluted mess like VIII, this political angle of the story is very rarely used in FF games and was a welcome change imo. I think it's one of the most mature entries in the franchise.
