    Double post!! i gave it an 8.
    Visually its a very good 360 port, as most Mulitplatform games the ps3 version has blurry textures and bad "jaggies", this one has crisp textures, and they handled the jaggies very well.
    Audio is pretty good. and since the BD had extra space, they added the original japanese voice overs, if you don't like choice of voice actors they chose,only grudge is that you only know what they are saying in cutscenes(with subtitles), but in battle when they level up they dont have subtitles.
    Gameplay is pretty fun, its action jrpg, not turn based, it takes some time to get used to how to pull of "blindsides" effectively, yet sometimes it hard to see what the enemy is doing to pull them off. Although you initiate the battle by running into enemies, it them takes you to a new "battle zone" that you actually fight them in.
    If you want a fix before FF13 comes out, i suggest you get this game.

    Wow... Played for 5 hours and still feel like the game hasn't even started to get going yet. This is one mother long game.... lol.... Very repetitive though which is already putting me off it.

    Once you leave Aeos it tends to pick up,and gets interesting(in my view).
    All RPG's have repetitiveness in the fights, but you can try mixing it up and changing characters often to get a different feel for each. But they REALLY make you work for trophies, i am about 30 hours in and only got 4 trophies.

    Ya. Got 1 at 5 hours. That's it. From the looks of the actual Trophies, you pretty much need to farm every corner of the game and do every little insignificant quest to even remotely stand any chance of getting 30% of them. If I ever decided to try and Plat this game, at the end of it, they may have to check me into a Loony Bin.

    Also only about 5 hours in, but i'm actually enjoying it more than i thought i would. No way am i also going for the plat, i'll just be playing for the fun of it, altough i must say the trophies are easier than Whight Knight Chronicles. Finished that and got a total of 4 bronze trophies...
