It's going to be the shittiest thing since Final Fantasy X and X-2 oh and toss the Kingdom Hearts games in for good measure. Square-Enix is dead, now with the Eidos tossed into the coffin with them I say bury the bastards already. There will never be another good Final Fantasy again.
Typical, cut scenes with all the looks but game play is absolute low quality. The crystal tools engine needs to be taken out back and shot. I can't see this game stressing the hardware that much. Not only that, isn't it time that FF also be killed. This series really has little chronological order and unlike the legend of Zelda series, its not really that fun of a game. More cut scenes than play.
I don't like the music. It reminds me of the intro to FFX-2, which is a bad thing. The story seems mediocre from the trailers, but I'm buying it anyways. Though the series (imo) has slowly gone downhill since FF7, the series holds a special place in my heart after FF1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and Tactics. 12 wasn't bad, and I even liked Dirge of Cerberus. Sadly, I've yet to play Crisis Core, but I will soon.
To me, the franchise died at FFVII. It was good, but I knew something was different.... almost wrong. I tried VIII but couldn't get past the shallowness of characters, interminable cutscenes and awkward gameplay.

FF XII was the best, hands down best combat system, with the highly customizable gambit system. The only other RPG that about on par with it that I know of is the newly released Dragon Age, PC version, not sure about the kiddie consoles.

It sells! They know that making anime with eastern looking characters won't be as accepted in the non Asian world, so they make them look like European people.
