1.) 300 Hours of gameplay to get 100% and Perfect Ending for the ABOVE average player...
2.) Several Different senario's for the game to play out depending on your actions throughout the story (on of the first of its kind)
3.) New Game Plus, which you had to play if you wanted the coveted perfect Ending, was AMAZINGLY well done!
4.) Best RPG battle System....BAR NONE, it was the template that XIII used for its Battle System
4.) 1000 Words...Amazing.
5.) Even after 300 Hours of gameplay, 100% completion and the perfect ending...there was STILL the 100 level dungeon that got progressively harder and had several story lines within it...and Trema. O.O
What turned people away was the first 40 minutes of the story, being all pop concerty and all that jazz, which is a shame - such an amazing game.
Moral of this story... I want a X-2 HD remake like X is getting!
...uhh...ill just put my favorite quote of all time here.
"Welcome to Pain, the second of three...You have dealt the first...now deal with me!!"
