Is the story good? I'm not going to be able to pick it up for a while. But one thing I've hated about the past couple FF games was how convoluted the stories were.
I'm 40 hours in and still in Chapter 3. Level 38 (with 100k+ xp saved up) and I can't seem to stop doing hunts/side quests. I'm loving every single second of this.
This was my problem with the entries 10, 12, and 13.
I'm not impressed with the world so far, it looks just like the drive between LA and Vegas with a bunch of gas stations, not much imagination into it at all. they literally took the exact scenery from that drive and threw it into the game. I'm not really into "large" worlds as much as I am interesting worlds. So far, the weakest part of the game is the world to me. It's all based on the first area though, so hopefully interesting areas open up and that changes. Desert areas tend to be the most dull designed in games anyway, I'm not sure why they chose to make that your first area.If I reach my first big town/kingdom that could change so fast, so we'll see how things go.
