LM I'm glad to hear that you liked it! since most of the FF fans hated it for some reason. Though since you beat it with only 60 hours I guess you didn't do all the side quests right? There are some really fun bosses (Especially Omega XII in the Great Crystal) to fight and powerful Espers to get. I finished the game twice and I remember on my second time I completed all the monster info thingy.
Since my PS2 is dead I really hope that they would re-release it on PS3 like FF X.
