I must say I'm surprised. This is has been such a highly-anticipated game and I just naturally assumed it'd spark a good discussion here. At ANY RATE. I love what they did in expanding the story beyond the original. The gameplay and battle system are extremely tight. The battle system specifically is a much improved, more refined version of XV's. I also love one of the newest additions to the game; a real shithead of a character named Roche who pops up at the worst times. Forgive my random, unorganized thoughts on the subject. I just love the game so much and haven't truly discussed it with anyone that I can barely get a coherent sentence out. Anyone else playing?
