EDIT Wow, I am 18 hours in now and this game is really good :) The first 4 hours really sucks, in 5 hours it picks up, then 10 hours and beyond you really see what this game has to offer.

I swung by EB Games at 10:00 AM and picked up the collector's edition of FF12. I will play it for a while and let you guys know what I think. I will upload the cutscenes for ya at a later time. I hope that it has the theatre type option like the FF10 series so I can easily pull up the cutscenes later on.

Hmm... well so far I am not really impressed, but I am sure others may find it to be good. I have only played the first thirty minutes of the game (well, actually two minutes of gameplay and about 28 minutes of CG). I cannot tell much about the game so far since I have just started.

So far it does look like a cross between the Lord of the Rings, FF2, and Parasite Eve. I hope I can get used to the battle system since so far I do not fully understand it. Basically you see an enemy then a red beam aims at you to show you that he is aiming at you. Then you fight and run around just like Parasite Eve. I have only been in two fights so far but I hope I am fighting correctly since I keep bringing up the attack menu and choose the option to attack the target and nothing happens. Then I select the attack option about ten times then my character attacks.

I assume those options are for my team to attack. The environment is dark so far and doesn't feel like your usual brightly colored background like previous FF games. Hopefully that may all change as the game progresses. I also want to say that I am not a huge fan of Medieval type games and movies, so I am sure that plays a huge role of my impressions of this game.

I like new creative futuristic looking things, so old knights in metallic armor swinging swords and calling each other Sirs are not really my thing. However I completely understand how others can appreciate things like that. If someone else plays this game and says it is awesome I will not argue. I will try to play some more and give additional impressions later. If things stay the same though I am not sure I will enjoy this game. SE probably made this game look like Morrowind to attract the Xbox fans who like games like these.

Well from what I've read, its basically a story and you don't do anything and sit there and your characters fight on their own :/ Am I correct?

Grrr *off topic* I am trying to record the movies but for no reason at all it doesn't want to read the audio source even though I can hear the audio and selected the audio hardware to capture. I can record the video but the audio is mute. I do not understand it.

Ironically the Windows Movie Maker has no problem with recording both audio and video but VirtualDub doesn't want to record them. I will keep trying but if all else fails I will record it in WMM.

Ok it seems that Windows Movie Maker makes the video look pretty good so I will be uploading them soon.

EDIT

Make sure to grab some popcorn since the beginning cutscenes and the story combine for nearly 30 minutes of doing nothing but reading and watching. I am almost done creating the new FF12 page and uploading the movies I recorded.

I am not selling anything and it isn't like I am distributing the game itself. Just a couple of cutscenes like you find all over YouTube.

Cool... :/ I often wondered how youtube gets away with it though O.o ...

So would you recommend this game to me or is it not worth buying ?

I will have to play it more to let you know since I have been busy recording the movies and it takes forever to upload them to multiple sites. I plan to spend a few hours on the game later on today after I have completed all of my daily duties regarding this site and the others.

EDIT

I have read some forums and some people say this game is great, and others say it sucks. I may be falling into the group that doesn't like this game. I am still early in the game so things may get better, but I am not a fan of the battle system. It would be hard to describe because a description makes it sound interesting and more involved, but it isn't. I am running around in circles waiting for my energy gauge to fill up then pressing the X button and repeating the same step over and over again.

You are probably saying "well that is how all FF games are, you just click a button" however with other FF games you are so focused on the gameplay that you forget that all you are doing is pushing a button. This game doesn't even feel like you are fighting. I am getting chased around by multiple enemies and I push the X button and run next to them to watch an attack animation then run back around while I wait for the gauge to fill. It feels like I am watching a cutscene where all I do is move my thumb over the analog stick and press a button to see what happens next.

Also a lot of people have commented on the sound quality. Their voices do sound compressed like a 56kbps mp3 file. This game will really have to pick up the pace and change for me to like it, but I am not sure if that will happen and I may not even bother playing it. That being said though there are games out that I felt were very bad and people say that they were the best games ever so you may have to see it for yourself. So far I am not liking anything about it. It feels like this game is before the FF10 series since FFX and FFX2 seem more advanced graphically and audio wise.

EDIT

I have gotten used to the battle system but I have decided this game is definitely not for me. I do not like anything about it. If I haven't read the amazing reviews and score it has gotten I would have thought this game received a 3/10 score. I would recommend renting this game first and you may love it, I am seeing a whole bunch of mixed reviews.

well, ive only played the demo from dragon quest 8 but from what i gathered about the battle system, you dont have to have everyone attack automatically, you can go old schoo, stop all movement when in the menu and you can pick everyones actions. i dont know if this is different for the actually game as opposed to the demo but maybe that will help you enjoy it.

also, fun, what comes with the collectors editon? why is it special is my question lol.

I have played it a bit more and it doesn't seem as bad now since I am able to explore the World. I have gotten used to the battle system but I still do not like it since I am more focused at looking at my bar to fill instead of seeing what is actually going on in the action. The collector's edition has the coolest case you have ever seen. It is aluminum and has artwork painted on it to go along with bonus disc.
