I never finished this game, but I love the Final Fantasy series. I was wondering about traveling, do you get to use an airship? Also, is there much exploration as in going back to previous areas and such?
All shall bow before the allmighty Big Rigs and Street Cleaning Simulator...
Yes you do get to use an airship - technically you can "use" one near the start of the game since you can pay for a journey from one area to another in the Aerodrome.
HOWEVER, after a certain plot area I won't reveal since you haven't finished the game, you get to use Balthier's airship - the Strahl to travel freely - but I personally prefer Gate Crystal Teleportation.
