Alright so I took way too long a break from work today and beat it. I made the mistake of deciding to beat the game about 2 weeks ago. Why was this a mistake? Because I turned it into a chore. Something that had to be done, instead of taking my time for the last 6-9 hours or so of play. Despite turning it into a slight drudgery at the end there, I enjoyed the game thoroughly. I left satisfied and look forward to going back and trying to beat some more of the marks (I think I have at least 40 of them done now, though not all at 5 stars) when I feel like it. Despite our high hopes (my high hopes?) not being completely met, I do think it is yet another respectable entry into the Final Fantasy series. I'm going to write a review of it sometime over the next few weeks when I have more time because nobody ever gets tired of reading about Final Fantasy, right?
