but here's what it is thus far.
I think the graphics, in many aspects are better. the framerate and hair is worse. But overall the sacrifice of hair is okay with me.
The grass on the ground looks way better. The environments look more like actual environments. The animations and weather effects are neat.
The story is enjoyable. Not a classic story or anything atleast thus far, But, enjoyable. I've found the character interaction to be really fun, and the ability to say ridiculous things is quite funny. I like serah a lot, Mog reminds me of my dog, and Noel, i'm not sure of, but doesn't grate me like Snow or Hope did.
A couple issues. I thought FF12, and FF13 was atleast a little difficult. So far this seems easier like 9,10,10-2 where those took 15 hours to die once. Though 13 achieved this difficulty by game over after leader dies, and locked crystarium. I've thought the music was Consistently Great in FFXIII. The best music here thus far, seems to be higher than the best music in FFXIII. But every once in a while you here a song, and it's just strange.
