This game is most definitely worth getting. Like many have said, it is a drastic change from previous FF games, but to me, it's a nice change. It made it more fast paced and exciting. Not to mention the awesome license board and gambits, which if used correctly, can pretty much play the game for you. The only real downer in the game is the story. Which is almost non existent. I know the story is supposed the most important part, but, since there's so much extra stuff to do, you can look at this game as a fighting game with a story thrown in. This game is great. I recommend it to anybody.
