Still, after 9 years of playing it a total of 4 times through, and clocking 400+ hours of gametime, there are a few scenes which I will never forget. The story is something to behold, and had me so emotionally involved that I were playing the game just to find out what happens in the next scene. The addition of Blitzball was perfect - It could be a standalone game! I played that minigame for SO long, and it had you exploring the world scouting for players while doing all of the extra stuff. And that's the thing - There is so much more to do beyond the main story! The additional Aeons to discover, finding the Celestial Weapons (A few of them was very difficult to obtain!) and the Monster Arena were simply amazing additions to the game.
Best story I've ever come across. Ever.
Best progression system in any game I've ever played (the Sphere Grid)
Best cutscenes I've ever seen in a game. (In terms of what happens in them and their involvement in the story)
Best 'additional' tasks I've come across. (The monster arena mixed with the pursuit of celestial weapons and aeons easily doubles/triples your gametime)… Expand

This: for Â£40? No chance.
The thing that really annoys me is how this thing is getting good reviews from critics. Can I just ask how?
You are not rating the game in terms of value for money. Yes, Modern Warfare 3 is a good game. So is Modern Warfare 2. What has changed? Essentially, nothing. Over the past few years we have come to accept the fact that Activision will keep recycling the same game engine, graphics, weapons, online structure, etc. We buy it full price and ask no questions.
Activision's titles have little more improvement from their predecessors than a common dlc, and this HAS to be considered when reviewing their games.
Come on critics, wipe Activisions brown substance off your face and take a look at reality.
If this were the first game in the Call of Duty franchise and this was a completely new game, I'd give it a 7 or 8.
As an improvement to the predecessor and in terms of value for money, this is a 0.
Not worth buying until either all of your friends have deserted you or the price drops considerably.… Expand
