Not really, overhated would be the best answer, I personally hate it while I love the final fantasy series. --- PSN:arclouksx/JustArc_ -Now playing:MGS4,Persona 4 Golden,GOW Collection. http://rebelallianceclan.com/signatures/RAarclouksx.png
Its not overated at all, the defenders might make you think that it is, but they are wrong, it gets the hate because it deserves it. --- Ryoma / Sora / Naruto / Luffy / Ginta Young heroes between the ages of 12-17 make RPG and other video games better then older heroes 18-21 and over.
It was LITERALLY overrated in terms of critic's scores. Some sources gave that game a perfect score, which is a joke if I've ever heard one.
It terms of the player base, it is probably closer to being rated as it should. It is a horrible excuse for a Final Fantasy game, but it is playable. It should have been a lot closer to a 7 or MAYBE a 7.5 than a 10. I don't think any rational people consider it to be a "great" RPG.
