What's the main complaints of XII?

#1DilsDilevaPosted 10/11/2012 11:03:18 PM
I've only seen a few videos of it, and while I find some minor things disturbing, it looks pretty great to me, and the gameplay looks really fun.

So why do so many people complain on it?

Because they don't like good games.

I personally think it's one of the better, if not, the best FF games to come out outside of handhelds.

These are some of the complaints I keepstumbling upon (some of which I can understand).

- Vaan isn't the central character in the plot, so why is he considered the main character, and not Ashe?
- They ripped off Star Wars in many ways.
- Everyone plays the same; so it doesn't matter who's in your party.
- You can beat the final boss without even touching the controller.
- No one's interesting in the main cast, aisde from Balthier.

And I'm sure there's more I can't remember at the moment.

I think the main complaint about XII is that its story is incredibly boring to some people with a few political stunts being the height of the story, and that it features a number of bland characters (Except for Basch, Balthier and Ashe) and little of these characters actually get developed.

Those are the main complaints you listed, but these are things I tend to hear IRL most of the time whenever discussing XII with anyone.

I've heard some very VERY reasonable complaints, back in its time.

Like "Ohhhh myy GODDD, the game is too BIG!"

*Ohh my GODD, it's not turn-based! I want my money back!!!"

"Ohhhh myyy GODDD, the character customisation is too COMPLICATED and let's you be too STRONG!"

"Oh mahhh GAWDD, the gambit system makes the AI do everything, I have no control *sobs*..."

"Ohh MYYY GODDDDD, this is the worst FF there is, because this isn't a LOVE STORY *RAGEEEEEEE*"

.....and you get the point, this fan base is truly gifted with some fascinating creatures

Sorry...jus' sayin'

I thought the gameplay was great, they nailed it, but the story just didn't do it for me personally.
