Me - 20 hours in.

If you did at all.
Beat the game, because I never start a game and not finish it, I honestly NEVER had interest and basically Endurance Runned it. It really upset me that they dumbed the combat down from FF 12. The ability to program your AI to do exactly what you wanted, plus the hunts and the hidden summon bosses just made 12 an AMAZING game.
" @Meowayne said:Yeah, pretty much this. I went on because it was an OK paced dungeon crawler and people were saying it got better in chapter 11; then I hit chapter 11 and it became Final Fantasy XII. Haven't touched it in weeks." 30 hours in, chapter 11. "Add 5 hours and I was in this exact same situation. I got to the point where apologists were saying it got fun and was still bored so i sold it shortly thereafter. "
Beat the game twice, S ranked it on one copy and plan to S rank the other later in the summer, so never. I can't get enough of the game honestly, the combat specifically. Some of the bosses are just some of the best moments I have ever had in a game. I wish they'd bring DLC out for more shit to kill :(

SYN SYN MED, then SAB SAB MED, then RAV RAV COM, switch to MED MED COM as needed. No thanks, can I have a REAL challenge please? For God's sake, the hardest boss in the game can just be poisoned once and you can put on MED MED MED and walk away for an hour and come back and it's dead.
Yes you can Poison Vercingetorix (Mission 62) and just SEN SEN SEN for his Wicked Whirl and then MED MED MED, Poison and repeat. You won't five start it but it can be done, and the fact that it can be done that way is just pathetic.
" @drakattack: And that is the best part of it, I didn't do any of those things and still beat the bosses. They offer a ton of different ways to tackle the bosses. Also the hardest boss in the game (bosses technically) can not be poisoned, that would be mission 62, the final story bosses are push overs if you know what you are doing. "
The combat system was an immediate turnoff and I instantly hated Vanille the moment she opened her mouth. By chapter 6, I'd had enough.
But honestly, I lost interest before I even begun playing. The art direction didn't particularly appeal to me and having just finished Okami, I wasn't ready for another 40+ hour game. Not to mention the numerous bad feedback it was getting. It sat on my shelf for days, still sealed, before I finally opened it. And looking back on it, I should've just left it that way.
Six? hours in. I think it was six. In any case, I dropped it right back into the envelope to Gamefly. After multiple bad experiences now, it seems pretty clear that the series is no longer for me. Luckily, I already had some idea this was the case and rented instead of buying.
I might lose interest grinding for the Treasure Hunter Trophy, because even if I did have the gil, it's a LOT of menus to do all the upgrading. But I'm so close, I may as well finish.
Oh, I'm sorry, you were talking about the story. I enjoyed it. I couldn't stick with FFXII, but I really enjoyed the story of FFXIII... once there was actually a story to speak of.
