Summary

Not as Good as Others but still Okay.

The Good

The CGI animation was wonderful. The opening cinematic was my favorite (Squall vs. Seifer). There was interesting missions and battles and it made you have to think on your feet when you play. The weapons look very cool and the musical score is nice and calm when it has to be and terrifying when you enter a terrifying place.

The Bad

The Card Game. It was a little confusing. Plus the numerous side quests. Too many. And the GF attacks. You summon the GF and they only do 1 attack, that's it! The graphics looks like one big noodle you could unwind until it was gone. The characters at least, especially Squall.

The Bottom Line

Play it but don't play it too long.
