    The world ends at the start of the game. This game excels in story because you're a major player, you're one of the character fighting to reconstruct the world according to your own ideals, not some "power of friendship!" faggot running after some bishie vilain with a ridiculous plan. You as a player will decide how your new world will be according to the ideals you express during the game, and you will fight the others interested in recreating the world according to their desires.
    And the gameplay, well, that's miles above FFXII.

    Hm Gothich turns from
    Gothic 1: prison colony escape/survive Story
    to
    Gothic 2: save the World(Island) story
    to
    Gothic 3: save + re-form the world story

    To me it didnīt really matter, I liked all Ideas. Why not save the world?
    Thats not that stupid!
    If the world is going to end why not?
    Itīs not like theres anything better to do then instead.

    You say that like it's an odd thing.

    Am I the only person that thinks FFXII's battle system is the best thing since sliced bread?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    And most of the time it's retarded, the vilains, world, motivations and heroes suck donkey dick.

    To tell the truth, it was nice but quite easy and limited in some parts, also many times it was boring. Damanging spell were useless in late game and summons sucked. Don't know about that japanese extended version though.

    ^ Yeah, I also felt like the magic was just tacked on. Also with certain battles, like the Hellworm, I set my guys up and left it. Around an hour later I came back and they were finishing the battle. It seemed to be a football manager system for final fantasy. You set the system up and see how it works. It just didn't do it for me. The game was pretty popular and well received though, so I guess it did find it's target audience.

    It was good, it had a few flaws, but it was good. However you must understand I'm an FF7 fanboy so anything other than turn based battles with materia, pale in comparison.

    Well I think I said before that I thought the best battle system was in FFX-2 (thats about it)... come to think of it Grandia III had a sick ass system too... FFXII had the best overall package though imho.

    Grandia 3 had a nice system but everything else sucked major balls.
    I mean, what the fuck, after having that blonde chick in my group for a while I was ready to join the *FABULOUS* villain and never look back.
    Growlanser generations(both games) had a similar effect on me.
