Goofs

During battle sequences, Snow's trench coat has artwork on the back; however, in the field, there's nothing there. These designs serve as Snow's equipable "weapon" as the design changes as the player equips new weapons. Equipped weapons appear in battle and do not appear in the field for any of the characters.

User Reviews

 
Underrated but very flawed as well
28 November 2019 | by P97See all my reviews

In my opinion nowhere near the worst in the series but i understand why people would hate it.

the characters and party members are mostly great (vanille and snow are kinda annoying) lightning is a great protagonist and no she's not a female version of cloud and hope as a character has a great ark.

the srory is fine but it's all over the place and for me it never got that epic as a final fantasy game should be and the main antagonist and final boss were incredibly weak.

the battle system is ok but i wish if it was more like x-2, it really gets repetitive over time but overall it's better than xii in my opinion.

on it's own this game is actually pretty good and it's even better with it's 2 sequels and a decent start to a series of 3 games.
