sodastar, I disliked it because it was far too linear. It wasn't like the other traditional FF games where you got to roam around, level-grind, or had weird systems. I felt like the game was playing itself and I was doing what I was told... Did not like that at all. I got bored of it very fast.
I do not know how so many people disliked ff13? Its a really good game! And I really liked the new battle system, I thought it was g8! One day I'm going to work for square-Enix and it would be an honor to work on a final fantasy game ^-^
Still incomprehensible to me how people can say that Final Fantasy XII didn't have a good soundtrack. Has anyone listened to The Battle for Freedom? I find that it's better than Dancing Mad and One-Winged Angel. Yeah, I said it.
