Puzzling review since they claimed it was a better game than FFXIII.

I didn't feel they justified their points well.  What I got from the review was basically "the game has a good battle system, is no longer linear, and its story is terrible. Oh, and shiny graphics."

I would have liked to have seen mention of the FPS - I played both the 360 and PS3 demos and both had some minor FPS drops. Not gamebreaking - just noticable and nowhere near Skyrim/DS level, and was wondering if they were in the full game.  The lack of mention of music at all during the main review other than a blurb irked me, because some of the music is quite brilliant.  I'd have liked to have read some comments about character/enemy balance - which XIII got completely wrong - as well.

Ah well. Maybe I'm just expecting too much, especially if the author is limited in his word count.

Can't agree with worst OST ever. The soundtrack is actually full of really awesome music. And there are two Chocobo themes, and one of them isn't an abomination.

The other one is, though :)
Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.

Anyone who spent even a modicum of time researching it would know that it's an intentional joke track that you never have to listen to if you don't want to.

As long as you mark spoilers with the code tag, you can talk about it. Just remember to use the code tag.

Ive heard the other tracks, and they werent memorable. I think it just blew me away how they would even make a song like that for final fantasy. The Leona Lewis thing was bad enough but this is like rubbing salt in the wound.

You'd be surprised how much this OST grows on you -- it's a supremely phenomenal effort.

It's better to hear a lot of OSTs in context, I find.
